    You're missing the point, she wants OSX specifically so all Windows machines are automatically disqualified.

    Maybe they are shit in India..

    Besides, you're basing you judgment of Dell on one crappy laptop ? Maybe the coworker is a dumb shit and fucked it up himself.

    A good laptop should work anywhere.

    Thanks, that sounds good, I like to sound knowledgeable when I'm talking to the sales representative.

    I can get a loan, I don't have a car or any mortgage payments or debts and I can eat noodles for a year if I have to.

    I'm not sure what you do exactly, are you affiliated with an academic institution? If yes, I think you can get a discount.

    Yeah, I'm working in a uni lab from next month. And I'm getting a discount. I'm just planning ahead, I want the laptop before I start working.

    edit: I'm contemplating between getting a 13" MacBook or 15" Macbook Pro.

    let's repeat it: She never mentioned the price range....

    Seriously, unless we know your budget, we can't really advice you. Fucking DUH!!!

    I have a 12" right now and 20/20 vision so the size is not a problem, I can manage that. But I'm leaning towards the Pro anyway, because the last time, I went for convenience and now I need to buy a new computer since I cannot upgrade. But it depends on how easy it will be to upgrade a Pro. Besides computers may be a different animal four years hence.

    I'd prefer to be under US$ 3000

    Computers will be a different animal in as little as 1-2 years. What you're buying now is basically the end of Intel's current architecture and CPU lineup. They're coming out with a new set this year, with processors that won't work with the motherboard in your laptop. In 3 years time, the current CPUs will still be available and cheap... the question is if Apple will provide and install them for you as an upgrade. That's something to ask your sales rep.
