Not dating and relationship related, but.
i need a new laptop. I have been shopping around, but would love to hear some real advice. Laptop reviews, gag users? should I go ahead and splurge on a mac? is it worth the high price?

If your going to use it for what most people do (internet, basic word processing, maybe watching some videos from netflix/hulu) and want a lot of battery life to wander around with and not think about anything, mac sure. In reality if that's all your going to use it for browse about for whatever computer is in your budget.
Traditionally Macs are better for graphics/music processing, whereas PC's are where its at for gaming, information processing (we're talking massive amounts of research data here) (physics major...), etc. This is all by and large true because there are simply more programs and accessories out there for a PC you can get without paying through the nose. And that will remain true, because that's how Apple keeps the viruses, etc down on their hardware: keeping a strangle hold on their products.
I prefer PC, but I like having the option of being able to dig in and fix/change/program my computer with less loops to jump through.
Like I see has been said already, PC's can kick the sh*t out of macs if you know a little of what your doing (and for a lot less $$$). I had a HP for 5 years who's screen only recently went out (not its computing ability) after I dragged it around the world with me. I only got a virus once, and that was no hard fix. Working on a borrowed Dell right now, and its just fine for all the basic needs.
I'm back on the market for a laptop as well, and I have every intention of getting a PC. I don't think paying through the nose for being a mac person is worth it.
My coworker just got a google os beta cloud computing computer for free...give it a few years and apple with get trounced out by opensource like that.
Thats my two cents. Heading to get my masters in electrical engineering/ computer technology in the near distant future.1
