First of all, I’ve sold out more of my soul and am now on Twitter [thanks for all the Twit advice]. My handle is @eugenecho. My goal is to get 5,000,000 followers so I can start my own international city. Let me begin by thanking all the Eugene Cho(s) in the world for not being geekier or techier and taking the ID. You all are truly servants.
But now that I’m twittering, switching over to the Mac might be the last straw before my soul is lost to the god of trendiness. I recently purchased a used newer PC but over this weekend, I was seriously tempted to get a Mac. I saw some folks demonstrate video and powerpoint stuff and was a little envious. And after my recent post about PC vs Mac, I had three people offer to send me money including one person that was willing to make up the entire difference between my church’s $800 budget and a new Mac. Crazy. I said, ‘No,’ but now, I’m a little tempted.

Last year, I indicated that I was in the market for a new laptop and asked folks which way I should go: PC or Mac? The discussion was pretty spirited. I also got some additional hate mail for my post entitled Why the Iphone Sucks which pretty much demonstrates my envy of iPhone users. I never got a new laptop then but now I actually need to get a new or used laptop. Our family is selling some stuff to help us get through some financial situations but thankfully, the church is supplying a laptop I can use. Another big reason why I need to get a new laptop is the Dell m1210 [12.1 in screen] I was using [which I really like] was causing some painful traces of carpel tunnel because of the cramped keyboard and that’s not good.
While I’d love to hear what your honest recommendations are. I’m not going to get a Mac simply because the budget I have from the church is $800 and well, we all know that Macs cost a pretty penny.
- What laptop & model would you suggest for that budget?
- What do you personally use? I’m curious to see the numbers between PC vs Macs. If you use a PC, what brand?
- How many of you have made the move to a Netbook?
I have four reasons why I won’t get a Mac – even though I’m a fan of Steve Jobs: Read the rest of this entry »
