Hello I used to be up with latest bit of news around computers, but that is long gone. I still understand the better processor is the one with more GHZ, what is core2dou? I always was the desktop guy. Big screen, lots of power, place to upgrade, nice storage, lasts longer, can take on anything. As I grew older I just stopped testing software and doing multiple formats(from the windows days) and getting the most I can from my computer. It turned to my attention comments that macbooks(laptop) are the most selling macs. I always believe laptops are for people on the go, college student who just wants to run office, people who like to go to coffee shops and check their email doing light web browsing and using instant messaging. Did things change? More and more I read online about professionals everywhere using macbooks as their main computer to run their heavy duty applications like final cut and photoshop. Can laptops today be workhorse? No over heat, can stay for days on, screen doesnt start to look dull and starts to disfunction, run big applications(including games)... are they dependable? I dont think any more I want to have a desktop station where I am on it doing all the work. I am more like now check msn, and do a quick search, but that requires long time of keeping the system on, including long time downloads, and i want to know that I will have the option of running big apps if I wanted to. I am worried its not as dependable as a desktop.
