I like something with style as well. But I just can't get any info on how quiet laptops are. Anyone who can advise me on which brands and models to look at?
I have a powerbook and a mac pro and i can't fault either of them. Apple laptops and desktops really are great. I also use a modded dell for my design job at work, which is loaded with ram and is very fast. My 3ghz quad mac pro puts it to shame!
When it was new,my powerbook also was much superior over other laptops. Bare in mind though, i am a graphic designer so i use macs as they are better for design.
For general usage, a pc my be more sufficient?
