Hey everyone. I need to get a laptop for college before the spring semester begins. Some of my friends have Macs so I thought I'd get one. I was doing some research, considering all options--both Mac and PC. I was looking for a system with these specs. Here's what I found: MacBook Pro 15 Processor: 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo RAM: 4GB DDR3 Hard Drive: 500GB SATA DVD Drive: 8x (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) Display: 15-inch Glossy Widescreen Display Keyboard: Backlit Keyboard (English) / User's Guide (English) Price: $1,849.00 PC: Processor: 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo RAM: 4GB DDR3 Hard Drive: 500GB SATA DVD Drive: 8x (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) Display: 15.6-inch 1080p HD Display Keyboard: Backlit Keyboard Price: $924.00 I'm just a little confused... the specs are EXACTLY the same (except for the display) but the MacBook is almost $1000 more. Money isn't really an issue but I still don't want to waste money... expecially when i could get exactly what I want for a lot less. I'm hoping to buy it before Christmas because class starts Jan. 5th. Can someone please help!!
