I have been a PC owner my whole life. Windows Vista frustrated me with its clutter so I installed Ubuntu Linux on my Dell Desktop. Linux is nice and fit most of my needs but has a bit of a learning curve. My current laptop however is a Thinkpad from 2004 running on a slow Pentium Mobile Processor, extremely limited hard drive space, and Windows XP. Booting up takes forever and it runs slow. Time for an upgrade. Here is what I am looking for. Please give your opinion on whether I would be better suited for a Mac Book or Dell/HP Laptop with Windows 7. Obviously I expect a little bias but I do need some convincing considering the Mac Book will cost me about $300-600 more: - Video editing (Hava HD Platinum/Titanium compatible?) - iTunes - Email Compatibility is a big issue with me. Is there still a ton that the mac is not compatible with? Why should I buy a mac?
