Ok, so my laptop basically crashed. I want to get a new one.

Is microsoft still doing the Buy a PC get a xbox 360 free thing?


Because here is the thing. I really like macbooks, but I miss the CRAP out of my xbox.

In my hometown, its nearly impossible to get a job, I have tried all summer and i'm seriously starting to get bummed out. And with the fall semester coming up there is going to be a crapton of games I want to get.

Now, I love apple products, and their laptops would be great for college. However that buy a pc get a xbox free deal is really tempting.


Basically which do you guys think I should go for?

You can always install mac os x on your laptop by the way.

Well really the thing I like most about macs is the look. That glossy screen is just so sexy.

I found a laptop for 799 that outpreforms macbook pro in almost every way. So yeah Apple is just a rip off.


I mean the macbook pro base model only had 320 gigs. I found a 699 samsung that had 640 gigs...

Dude if you want a laptop to be "sexy" then just get a PC laptop and hot glue some plastic boobs on it. There, you just saved a boatload of cash that you can use to buy games with. You're welcome.

Haha. Well by sexy I mean I just want it to look nice and not a fingerprint magnet.

I want a laptop that is cheap but powerful, has great battery life, qualifies for the free xbox deal, and that has a ton a space.

I will not be doing any hardcore gaming on it so do not worry about that.

I love how Apple has successfully marketed towards people who want to look cool instead of actually making a good product.

This topic made me realize that I haven't seen the front lid of my laptop in about 5 months. I guess Apple-lovers like to just stare at their products instead of use them.

Apples phones and ipad is great but my god their computers are horribly overpriced.

The rumors are true, i literally can get the same speced computer for half the price.
