Non non biyori is more hype tier but still pretty good.

Also, "My Girl" on the same album as Esoragoto is probably my favourite.

Speaking of Non Non Biyori, I just graduated from High school. Not gonna touch it for a while so I won't curl up and shed incredibly manly tears

Dayum, the studying for this is too dayum high.

Are there any benefits of having a Mac over a PC? 1500 bones is quite a lot to stomach.

All the girls will think you're cool, and you'll fit in better if you like to go to Starbucks.

Are we talking notebooks or desktops?

I'd rather go with an Alienware with a custom nameplate if we're going the overpriced overhyped route.

Isn't it the same? You're still paying an obscene amount for what the PC equivalent would achieve at a much lower price.

Notebooks. I still need it to be powerful enough for graphic intensive work. In case I need to video edit: I do really like Final Cut Pro

I like the smooth, usable gestures available in for OS X, as well as Mission Control (turn off the animation though). I actually like Windows 8's Start Menu since I use it as a quick-access program launcher/Mission Control-like option.

 

Keyboard navigation with OS X in Finder is also smoother than in Windows' Windows Explorer. I also find general file browsing to be more convenient in OS X and especially with Quick Look. Windows doesn't have such a feature.

This question never makes any logical sense.

 

Which do you choose? You analyze your own life in terms of what you need. Then you look at what you want to do. Specific programs compatible with the OS you want? Is it's performance or price what you want. Can it do what you need it to do(gaming, video, photo)? Then there is no need to ever ask outsiders this question.

 

This also assumes that if you are asking about Mac vs PC for a new computer that you don't already have a pre set preferntial for an OS for daily use. And thus, asking yourself those questions and doing research along with some other questions will arrive you at the conclusion that you want.

First, I guess I'm looking at that performance/price ratio.

 

It'd be helpful if perhaps you guys could list some PC alternatives ( in terms of raw specs). Let's say I wanted a snappy computer for video/photo editing etc. 

 

Then I'll narrow it down from there.

 

I'm also thinking about refurbished Macbooks from Apple. Are last year's models necessarily that much different from the newly released Pros?

Get a Macbook if you can.

 

In terms of options, you'll have to decide between the 13 inch and the 15 inch macbooks. To put it simply, the 13's have dual core CPU's, and the 15's have quad core CPU's, so it'll be twice as fast for Final Cut Pro's operations.

 

It's up to you whether you want to shell out the extra dough for twice the performance over the 13inch macbooks, I guess it depends on how often you'll be doing heavy lifting with it.

 

If you don't see yourself doing video editing 24/7, then I'd probably get a 13inch model as it's much easier to carry around, especially when travelling overseas. It's a fair chunk cheaper too, I'd be happy to save $800 if I had to wait an extra ten minutes rendering video. 

 

Personally, I think it's worth paying the premium for Apple notebooks over PC notebooks, they may be crappy in terms of value when looking at the specifications, but they're so much easier to live with, in terms of build quality, portability, and battery life.

The newer CPU's make a pretty significant difference in terms of battery life (extra hour or two), and graphics performance.

I'm looking at http://store.apple.com/us/product/FE664LL/A/refurbished-macbook-pro-23ghz-quad-core-intel-i7-with-retina-display

 

vs the newer Oct 2013 Macbooks http://store.apple.com/us-hed/buy-mac/macbook-pro 13 in $1699 ver and 15in $1899 ver

 

 

Would it be best to go for the refurb model?
