Just about any macbook will do the job.

If you go Mac (which I personally recommend) be sure to keep an eye on Macrumor’s buyers guide – it’s been 200 days since the last update, a new one is due around September-October, perhaps earlier as they might update it with (or right after) the OSX Mountain Lion release (which is promised “summer 2012”). :)

Having said that; if you need it now, just go ahead and buy it. Personally I always plan these kind of purchases a few months ahead, though, as I hate the feeling of a new release when you’ve just purchased the older model at the same price :sarcasm:

Thanks for mentioning about Macrumours , It’s useful for me :)

Is the Air also good for Graphic Design? I am working now on my PC 3GB RAM and the graphiccard RADEON X700 /X550 (wich must be very old). I am now on the limits with my compute.

Air is good, but you don’t get much power or a CD/DVD drive for $1,200.. The CD/DVD drive (if you want one) can only be gotten from the apple store and costs 2x as much as a standard external drive.. monitor hookups aren’t standard fit and require expensive adapters (typical mac stuff). If you don’t mind conforming to their ways and frequenting the apple store, the air is a good choice.


just stay away from hp

HP is dead to me.. they bought and RUINED Palm, scrapped webOS and stopped offering support for the problems they created.

If they can ruin something as good as webOS was, then they are likely to ruin your copy of Windows 7 too.. just my biased opinion :)

I’ll +1 that

I bought a hp g56 113ea last year, and although it now sounds awful.

Hi spec but the 500gb hd makes a really worrying crunchy clunky clicky noise despite being defraged regularly all it’s life.

Started 2 days after the warranty the warranty ended too, and I’m not just saying that to somehow seem ironic, I’m stating in the annoyed tone such a sentence demands

A £450 laptop may not be ‘top end’ but it’s bitterly disappointing to have such a problem from a well established brand

I had Toshibas and HPs in the past and everytime it was a functioning computer but with all-over low quality standards compared to what Samsung has to offer in the 1000€-2000€ Windows class. I have my third Samsung X series laptop already. Its quality is good and it is a Windows machine that lasts 5 years. My HP and Toshiba I ’ d be able to recycle after 3 years. If you don’t mind Mac OS and to spend more than 2000€ they give you a high quality piece of technology that may even go beyond the 5 years of possible usage.
