    Mac or PC

    I have had 3 toshiba laptops over the last 5 years, they have all served me very well...

    All have run Windows (the last with Vista and a "backward" step to make it XP..)

    how many people on here use a Mac... and how many of you think they are better??

    I am looking for some thing that is ultimately portable and has the ability to process larger images...

    Current Spec Laptop is a Toshiba U302 (13.5 inch screen) has a 2.2 Ghz Centrino Mobile processor, 4gb of RAM (yeah only 3 is used in Winblows, but the video card uses the rest) 250gb hard sdrive (7500 rpm) and a 800 mhz board..

    what Mac thingy would suit??

    Mac. I often travel interstate for digs and sometimes have to process and burn to disc on site. When I first switched to digital from film several years ago, I processed on a small IBook G4. It did the job brilliantly but eventually ran out of puff when I started shooting RAW + JPEG Fine. I now use a MacBook on the road and it does everything I ask. And one of those USB wireless pre-paid thingo jiggers for the Internet ... sweet. Wouldn't touch a Windows jobbie with a barge pole. Too clunky.

    Step up to a Thinkpad, Clubmanmc. They don't get any better than those.

    Why not a new PC with Win 7. Brilliant!
