Hey guys, I'm brand new to the site and I've always thought about picking' up a MacBook. ( I'm posting this on my iPad. ) but my Windows 7 Dell Inspiron 1545 is only a year old, but I feel like it had problems ever since I took it out of the box. I had to reset the laptop multiple times when I first purchased it for around $550 . Now, it has a slow program startup speed and the programs often freeze up, plus a very slow shutdown speed. I routinely scan the pc with my security center and never understood what caused these random problems, and everybody knows about the short battery life. Now, I'm wondering if I should try and see how long it'll run for even if there is a refresh that I'm interested in, or should I try and get a good 200 to 300 bucks for it and buy a MacBook or MBA refresh this year.
