    I must say, you guys may think there is really an alternative, but trust me it isn’t. I have a PC for a desktop and I have a mac book as a lap top and a Iphone.
    When ever I need to get something creative done, I also end up going back to my mac book. The mac book processor was designed to make creative production fast and easy. If people are purchasing a mac book just to have, then I don’t see the need and going out to spend all that money, when they can purchase a regular PC. But if you need a laptop or desktop for creative purposes, then Mac is the way to go. Let’s not forget the most important fact. Mac does not get viruses. Good Morning People.

    MacBook Pro notebooks have some features that are difficult to check just from tech specs. They are silent, stay cool, very fast to start and shut down and have realy good battery time.

    You can actually get idea about the notebook only after using it for a while. It might be it will start silent and cool, but will start to sound like vacum cleaner after watching video for 15 minutes. No way to see this just by looking through specs. When I buy a Mac I know for sure it will have all these features.

    With other manufactures – it just a luck. Maybe Lenovo notebooks are more predictable in this, but still not 100%.
