If you can't tell...i'm fed up with Dell. In the 5 years (yes folks, 5 years) that I had my old school Apple Laptop, I never had a SINGLE problem. I didn't have viruses. It didn't shut down on me. The "motherboard" (i'm not convinced it's a real thing) didn't fry. The only reason why I switched to a PC is because I knew my little apple girl wouldn't make the trek to Korea very well and Best Buy was running a special on PC laptops. She (yes, it was a girl) was older, running slowly and I didn't want to mess with buying a new computer in Korea on the off chance that she would go kaput.
In the beginning, my little Apple girl cost about $1200. I paid close to $750 for my Dell piece of shit. The apple lasted me 5 years. The Dell lasted me less than 2. You do the math.
I guess it's true what they say. In the end, quality beats quantity every day of the week. You can be sure of one thing, my next computer will not be a Dell. I am an all-the way Apple user from here on out. Sure it may be a little expensive at first but as you can clearly see from the above statements...it's clearly worth it.
Here is my dream computer that will (hopefully) become a reality here in a few weeks once I return stateside.
