    Why should I purchase a new macbook pro?
    Hello everyone, I have been using a hp pavilion dv6000 for the past 2-3 years, and it is about time I start looking at a new computer to purchase. I was looking at the 13-inch macbook pro, and I really want to get it. But before I make this purchase, I really want to know more about mac and Leopard. What really sets mac apart from PC?

    Go to the Apple Store...and play around with the laptops...only you can decide.

    I have yet to meet anyone who has regretted the switch except hardcore gamers and
    they are slowly moving to game consoles.

    On top of this, do some research yourself aside from the forum. Only you can decide if it's best for you.

    HOLD ON A MINUTE!!!

    That could be a pretty good reason to get a MBP...BUT...

    If you're a "one girlfriend at a time" sort of guy...with 3 new girlfriends...two of them have got to be "ex-girlfriends" (assuming you're still seeing one of them)...so then the question is...what happened with the 2 ex-girlfriends???

    I'm gonna guess it wasn't MBP related!

    I got my girlfriend to get a Mac, but I don't think that's the same thing

    Let me ask you this...

    What do you use your computer for in the first place? What do you need out of a computer?

    The truth is that not everyone will enjoy having a mac, and it's not always the right choice to go with a mac if you're doing something constantly that a PC is just simply better at.

    That being said....I LOVE my mac and doubt I will ever go back!
