No, actually.....be my guest.

At my university there is an unproportional amount of hipsters boasting their macbook pros. Dude! They are using a macbook pro to check their emails, write along during lectures and listen to shitty music on iTunes!

They should go with the Macbook Air (and still have a tremendously overpowered computer for what they need)

Re: Top laptops for production????

The specs on Lenovo laptops are really good and the reviews place them as reliable as MacBooks. They're consistently runners up in 'Most Reliable' lists from review sites/magazines. And they're a fraction of the price of Macs. That's where my next laptop purchase will fall for sure.

That's what annoys me the most about Mac products. It's like another £200 to add 0.1GHz to your processor, £150 to add 4Gb of ram, etc., and hipsters just bust their entire student loan on a 'top' spec MBP that's insignificantly 'better' than the lowest model so they can watch shit films and listen to 128kbp mp3's through £400 headphones. So irritating.

If your going the Windows way please try and check the DPC latency I have twice been caught out by this and it cost me a lot of money in the long run. I used this [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
to check mine and try to sort out any problems. If you take it to a shop they might let you run it off a usb stick, ask first though!

I just bought one. Apart from having to buy software again, I've gotta admit they're right when they say "Apple - It just works". The only issues I've had were with my Numark NS6, but it appears as though that Serato not giving a fuck about any of their users, not just Mac.

When buying Lenovo make sure you choose the ThinkPad series since it's the only part of Lenovo still being developed by IBM and therefor extremely reliable, using the latest IT knowledge.

I've been using Lenovo for 3 years now and I have to say I'm really happy with it's performance.
Probably the next best thing after Mac but a whole lot cheaper.

The Thinkpad range also means you'll be spending more money as they are priced higher from what i can see. They are pretty good though.

If you are going to be spending a bit of money then I recommend the Dell XPS range or Alienware.

Re: Top laptops for production????

You know what the main thing is?

Getting one where the CPU/Hard drive doesn't output quiet blippy hissy excrement to your sound card.

I owned an Acer once thinking that an external USB card would mean I didn't have to worry about it. I was wrong.

Also had that issue less prominently with an HP.

I switched to Mac in 2006 and it's been great.

I would love to get a PC next though so I don't have to pay Apples cockraping prices.

There's other stuff out there but I can't be fucked to list it.

Be sure to research whether other people have had any problems with the laptop (overheating for example)
