    After having two HP laptops fail within one year of purchase I have decided that purchasing a Mac may not be a terrible decision.

    I'm asking Mac and PC owners alike, why I should buy a Mac? Which models are better and why??

    What are you using the laptop for, and how did the last two fail?

    For the generalist without specific needs, you can't beat the basic MacBook.

    Once I was in a Starbucks typing away on my MacBook Pro when a girl, enamored with my individuality and impressed with my savvy consumerism, sat down next to me. We later ended up having sex.
