    Get a refurbished Mac. Specs aren't everything. What's the point of impressive specs (which are probably overkill for what most people do anyway) if they have to support an inefficient OS that slows you down with constant security sweeps, comes with bloatware you can't entirely get rid of, and rips off the best features of OS X?

    Win7 goes insane after a period of use…just like older versions of Windows. A couple reinstalls a year should keep it mostly sane though.

    I have to laugh at the spec war sometimes nearly all the friends I have never use their
    MacBooks to its full potential yet they scream for the latest parts sure they get faster every year by a few seconds but no leaps and bounds. The other side of the camp needs
    all the horsepower it can get since Windows seems to chew through resources compared
    to OSX.
