Mac or PC?

Continuing on from last night, we’re now in serious CAM (Computer Acquisition Mode).

So should it be a Mac? Or a PC?

He’s looking at the MacBook with the SuperDrive, student price $1199.

Dell’s comparable laptop (with a bigger screen – 14.1″) is $1,204 with student pricing.

He also wants to upgrade his version of Sibelius from 3 to 5. It’s a dual edition, so it doesn’t matter which flavor of notebook he has. The real question is which computer will last the longest, handle his music creation and transcriptions, and still have general purpose uses for school and fun.

Cast your vote in the comments.. I haven’t figured out how to integrate polls into this theme quite yet, but I’d love to hear your opinion…convince me (and him) one way or the other.

    He’s in a creative field, he won’t be needing the most up to date business apps and the price is right. I vote Mac.

    Mac mac mac. Far fewer problems with virii and so on. My current PowerBook is going strong at 52 months old and I take it EVERYWHERE.
