I vote for this one. It has the largest hard drive and has a standard screen size.

That's very inconvenient, dishonest, and a waste of time.

I vote for this one, since i have one myself, exact same one, and it works very fast, and its a good price, $799 USD, $899 CDN.

The screen is tiny, but you get used to it. The Macintosh one does look like a good deal for the battery life, but 12" is like a DVD player...
Well the Apple is faster, and 13.3 inches is not small for a notebook, it's portable and powerful. And WTF, a DVD player tops out at 8" typically, more like 7" on average.

Right ... because they easily make the best notebooks on the market, and are priced extremely competitively. Not to mention, you can dual-boot, and get the sexy look. Not to mention you get a built in webcam.
