How was I trolling? I was telling the truth. It's a fact that Windows sucks for video editing. He said he wanted to do video editing, so I recommended the Mac and simply pointed out that you recommended a Windows machine which wouldn't be good for video editing.. Then you come in here trolling and spewing all kinds of BS that isn't even true (like the 1 button mouse thing).

message?board.id=offtopic&message.id=962830#M96283 ...Sorry, it runs Windows. Therefore its no good for video editing.A Mac runs that OS-n00b 1.2 so it is no good for anything other than the butt of a joke. BTW, Bill Gates owns Apple now. Ha ha. Now how can you kiss the apple?Heh. The Mac computer... It can only interface with a tomagochi. And the mouse has one really big button so as not to confuse all the groupiesusers.Right click? What is this "right click" of which you speak? Your words have no meaning! This does not serve Vaal. Leave our village at once. Landru, help us! Landruuuuuu!Sorry, I have to go do the daily virus scan and spyware sweep on my Windows systems now.Pssst! You're the one quoting me. See my original post in the center? You're the troll.Have a nice day, Gordo.

That's stupid. Computers do not become "obsolete" in two years time. My six year old Coppermine Celeron 1.1GHz system with 256MB of RAM + Windows XP would still be running modern software, just no games obviously, if it hadn't been burned up in a power surge. Right now my laptop has a Turion64 @2GHz, a 128MB DirectX9 hardware capable GPU, 1GB of RAM, etc. I know that if I threw Windows Vista on here and upped it to 2GHz it would easily take me to 2010, just no gaming obviously. It can run 1080p H.264 video and maxes at 60% CPU usage doing such a task. So I know it has plenty of horsepower to last for years.

On a sidenote: You're both lame as hell. Who argues about PC's anymore? It's not even a debate....they're both good at seperate things entirely.I really don't care if he gets a mac. Mac fanboys take it so personal. It's just a computer. Buy either one and it will be obsolete in two years. It doesn't matter if it's an obsolete PC or an obsolete mac.But you're absolutely right. He didn't give enough detail to guide him properly. I only offered my experience because it was fast and cheap. At the extremes, either get the fastest computer imaginable (obsolete in 4 years instead of 2) for $5000, or get the cheapest one possible and not even worry about speed. Some people have the luxury of choosing from the middle of the pack. Right now, Intel beats AMD rather soundly.I haven't even seen stats recently on mac performance. Didn't they stop making unique processors for macs last year? I know some of them have Intel chips. Pretty soon they will all have "PC" type CPU's. Then it's really just a difference of operating system. So then you could choose Apple OS, Windows, or Linux. Most regular people use Windows. I work with hundreds of computer programmers. I don't know of any who use Apple. I do know of some who swear by Linux though. I just never used it myself.

If you're into video editing and want a laptop, a Macbook Pro is hands down the best choice. Not only do you get iMovie included, but if you're doing some heavy duty editing, you could always get Final Cut Pro. The Core Duos handle video editing with ease.
