I am not against Mac but I will never buy one because of its cost (unless it reduces its price comparative to other laptops such as Dell, HP, Toshiba). Being in a software industry, I feel buying a Macbook is paying extra Apple Tax (thats what I call for its high price). If you want to show off to your friend and don't care about the price, go for it. But if you are looking for the specs (comparative) buy either Dell, HP or Toshiba. You can get a good laptop in descent price. The choice is up to you........ Enjoy!!

sony  pani  ramro  cha,  tara  malai  purano  dell  ko  media    buttons  haru  ko  baani  thiyo,  suru  ma  chain  garo   bhathyo sony ma adapt  huna... sony  ko sasto model  ma  khasai   dherai   feature hunna  but  still  better deal  than mac,  

mero  experience bata  chain  dell recommend   garchu,  tara   sabai  company  mass produce hune  na hun, kasai kasai  ko dell  le  chain  dukha  diyeko  ni sunchu.  hp   ni testai  ho,  tara   hp  ko  ni  laptop  ramro  huncha.   aarko malai  man parne  laptop  chain  lenovo   ho.... 

aba  aafulai  ke ke  feature haru chahincha,  tyo  hisaab le  yeso  online  store  haru  ma  price haru  hera,

ani,  laptop haru ma  1 barsa man. defect warranty  huncha,   ani  credit  cards  like amex  extend the warranty  for  an  extra  year  (  double the warranty  up to a  year).  amex  ko  chahin pakka  huncha, 
but  i heard even  mastercard  does  it. credit card  chaina  bhane  bank  ko  atm with mastercard  logo   lai as a  credit  use  garyo bhane  ni huncha  re.  u just have to  register ur  product with the  credit  card after  u  buy it. for  me,  that is more than enough,  kuz i will most probably want a new laptop in 2 years. so i wud not bother about spending almost  half the cost of laptop in a warranty  that is  full  fo fine  writings.

these are suggestion,   u  should confirm these  still exist  before  making up ur mind.

I dont know why you guys are making such a big discussion..

For what purpose you wanna buy laptop? Is it just household purpose (email, online videos, music, movies etc) or something enterprise level of use (e.g. developer's tool, utilities?). 

If it is for household use, get something upto 2GB RAM, 160GB+ Hard Disk, 1.7GHz+ Intel Processor..

For enterprise use, go for higher RAM at least 4GB RAM, and higher speed. 

Few facts you should know-
1. No matter what brand you buy, average lifetime of a laptop is 2 years. Some hardware issue appears after that period (Ironically, your warranty expires by that period). so RULE 1- LAPTOP'S LIFE IS 2 YRS whatever you buy..
2. Don't go for too big hard disk size. No matter what  is the size of storage, it is always less - one day, it will be full. Larger hard drives create issues, and they add extra weight.. Something around 200GB would be perfect. so RULE 2 -  NO BIIGGG HARD DRIVES.
3. Hight graphics ? Video Games? Desktop virtualization? Go for higher RAM. Rather go for Mac.. otherwise, DELL is fine.They have better / robust peripherals.
4. Don't spend more that 700 bucks in a laptop.
5. Don't shut down (turn off) laptop too often. Internally, it does lots of flushing/restoring work during shutdown/startup process. Rather just close the lid and it goes into hybernation.. Thats good. You should shutdown/restart once in a while for updates or after scanning.

ANS
You must be buying crappy laptops with life of 2 years. My IBM thinkpad is crossing 3 year and I abused it lot for many trips to Nepal and all over the place. Still it runs like a butter. On the other hand my nephew's Dell is dead in 16 months. It is just "what you pay what you get" rule.
.
But I agree with your other  comments as the buyer has to know what he needs the laptop for and depending on the need laptop type can vary ranging from $300 to $5000.

macbook is NOT over hyped. i dont know if it was the hw or the os itself but from my usage i noticed that macbook is a lot better in terms of performance than most other laptops with similar configs.

u can  buy lenovo thinkpad sl500  and its pretty cheap if u by a refurbished one. i just bought one for 500 bucks but its now 400 . you can go to www.outlet.lenovo.com and use the filter for lenovo sl 500. refurbished doesnt make any difference,  its just that they were opened once.

I bought Macbook Pro prior to last Christmas and have been very much enjoying it.  No crashes, no virus, no Windows problems.  Very smooth in every respect.  I got the $1400 version.  But Macbook can be had for less than $1000.  I recommend Macbook.

Mac core 2 duo are available for 800-900, go for it.
Want cheaper, I will be choosing IBM.


Found interesting data: September is the month the school starts, every one is trying to get their share of profit lowering computer price. Other right time is to buy on Black Friday, not explained about the month April, but the price on April were lowest of all.

If you aren't doing anything that requires a lot of processing power (including having a ridiculous amount of programs running at the same time), Acer aspire 5532 is awesome. It's biggest selling point is its price. It has great specs but only a single core processor. At just over $300 you can't go wrong. It's gotten good reviews and even if something were to happen to it, it's cheap so it won't be the end of the world.

Personally, I would go for a mac if I was spending more than a few hundred bucks.
