The time is winding down till i make my final decision...I just need some more confidence/peace of mind. I am not a graphics/artist/videographer artist, nor do i intend on becoming one. I will probably end up in Medicine, Law or Business. However, I like my fast computers when using my appications, internet and games. Games are not a large issue, only once and a while usage. I want the portability of a laptop for univeresity. My gut tells me to max out a powerbook 15 inch. Other side uses include CD burning, DVD burning, tinkering with iLife, and other minor things like that. Reasons why I am leaning towards apple is the stability, esthetics, and ease of use. I want a CANDID response, is it worth paying more for the apple if i won't really be utilizing the graphic design capability of the apple system?
