So after I moved out on my own, I decided that it was (finally) time to get a laptop. So I've been shopping around, and really liked the Mac's powerbook. So I started looking more into it, but found out I could get a discount (I'm rather cheap, -.-'') on a Dell laptop. So, trapped between the two, I asked some friends for advice. They mostly pointed to the Dell, because they don't like Apple, but their arguments werent really, well, good. So one of them suggested IBM, and said that even though they aren't focused on personal computers anymore, they had some pretty decent stuff. I haven't looked into it, but figured I'd ask around on some forums to see some pros and cons to both.
Some other random information:
-I already have the cds with software for the Mac
-I've been using a Mac for, well, a really long time, considering it is recommended for my java work and such.
-I have nothing against Windows; I've just never used it.
If you have any other suggestions, or could fill me in on some things you like/don't like about either, that'd be awesome!
Here's what I'm looking at:
