A mac!

How dare you. This is a PC Forum you must not use such bad language here.

Seriously though. You'll need to supply some info at least, its like saying I need a car. It makes no sense unless you give some info.

How much can you spend? What will you be doing with it? Will you be playing games - this incidently in my opinion is the main stumbling block with laptops. Laptops can in general do everything that desktops can BUT the graphics are rather poor. Not a problem with surfing the net, word processing, spreadsheets etc etc but it is a problem with games.

sorry lol but yeah Macs are cool, people are just scared because they dont know how to use them!!! however, there is a different forum topic. looking about up to £800, gaming isn't crucial all i play is football manager (constantly...) but alot of internet, downloading and burning etc. preferably amd, im still not completely decided on whether to have a desktop, cuz i like amd dual core

I'm afraid I know little about laptops. I'm sure someone else will advise further or why not have a look through the other posts using the word laptop in Consumerwatch as its been asked many times.

Incidently why do you prefer AMD? I'm an AMD fan myself and am on my fourth self build with an AMD processor but from what little I understand some of the Intel mobile processors can use less power and hence get a bit more battery life. So you may be losing out if you insist on AMD.

I of course may be wrong with saying that but its the impression I have. I'm not a fan of laptops as the upgrading is virtually non existant unlike most desktops and I like games.

I know De Marcus™ I just noticed this myself and got confused with his other posting, read both not realising they were by the same person. Which is why its not a good idea to have 2 postings on the same subject avid_gooner you confuse those who are trying to help. And to be honest with you this post should really be in Consumerwatch anyway as its about buying a PC.
