Hi, I've had dells which were ok. Right now I have a Toshiba which I like.
It serves my needs.
Now I'm typing this on a mac (cube). It's a desktop. No fan-so very quiet.
Never had a mac laptop-but people seem to like them.
A friend just emailed-he has an imac, macbook, and ibook for travel.
Guess he's sold.
The mac OS X is really good. But, with the intel chips in the newer macs
you can boot to OSX or to windows (such as XP)-if you install it.
something to think about.
