Right, I am a full time self-employed author, don't do any gaming, mostly work on word docs - i produce tens of thousands of words, obviously - and the only other thing I do is take holiday snaps and keep an iTunes library. i have just had a very bad experience with a new dell - got my money back, after a big fight, and have no other allegiance. Someone in the know - Dan? - please put me out of my misery, as I'm currently working at my tiny netbook, which is driving me mad.... Thanks!!
Hey Robenhud, well you can't go wrong with an ASUS Notebook, something like the X71 series. I've had my ASUS for years now and it hasn't given a single problem.
As much as I would like to say Macbook Pro 15inch. Don't waste your cash when you can get something equally reliable for half the price. I use a Mac at work and my laptop at home. My faithful laptop still outperforms the Macbook even with it's 2 year age difference.
