    Hello,

    I am looking to replace my 5 year old iMac in the next month or two. I want to stick with Apple because I love OSX. I have been shopping around in the PC world and am finding really great deals, making it harder for me to justify spending the extra money on a mac.

    I keep seeing machines like the HP Elitebook, which I love. I hate all of the consumer-grade pc laptops because the look so cheap and clunky. But the closest thing I see to macbook pros are "business-class" laptops.

    How do I buy these if I am not buying them through a company?

    Probably just go to the business side of their website and order through that. They won't care that you're not a company per se, they just want your money.

    my friend's work bought him a hp elitebook. it's a sweet machine. build quality is awesome and the touchpad is nice as well. The matte screen is fantastic, I think it's the best screen I've ever seen. wish it was thin like a mac though :/

    I bought a Dell v13 (poor man's air) off of Dell's refurb site. It was $450, they asked for my name, credit card, and shipping address. No company name required.

    lol, don't buy a pc, they simply don't compare to a mac.

    Wait for the MBP refresh, it'll be worth it :)

    Why do you have to 'justify' your purchase? You are used to the OS and simply prefer to use Macs - you shouldn't need justification for that.

    The trackpad is not centered on the top case; I can't stand that.
