The dilemma of choosing a laptop

Posted: May 21st, 2008 | Author: | Filed under: Musings | Tags: , , , | No Comments »

It’s always difficult to choose the right product when you decide to buy something. There are hundreds of companies, thousands of products and millions of specifications. But right now, I am facing a dilemma between a Mac or a Windows laptop.
I have been thinking of owning a Mac, however, the transition from Windows to Mac is not that easy. I am reading several forums and websites about the big switch from Windows to Mac and learning new things daily and then the second moment I think why not purchase a laptop which has Ubuntu, although there are very few laptops which have Ubuntu pre-installed.
It’s not that I hate Windows (I like Windows XP) but after 30th June, 2008 no new laptop will be shipped with Windows XP and that is what leading me to a new road either a Mac or Ubuntu. I tried Windows Vista (Beta) and in my opinion it’s very high on style quotient and not good on performance. I got bored of that glassy look after few weeks.

What do you (if there is any) think? Is it worth to switch loyalty from Windows to Mac? and if not Mac which brand/product is good with Ubuntu or I should stick to Windows and try Windows Vista?
