Well to make a long story short my wife broke her laptop and is using my very old PowerBook G4. It is fine, just not fast enough for things like hulu and the CD drive is dead. Which brings me to my question, I currently use a brand Macbook, it is the last generation but other than a case change is the same. I was debating about giving that to her and getting my self a pc laptop instead of a new Mac. Since every one is saying how cheap they are. I already own a legal copy of 7 so the OS is not a problem. I just need it to be equal or better than my Macbook but cheaper. Specs of my Macbook 2.13 core 2 duo Nvdia 9400M 2 gigs of RAM 320 Gig HD I know nothing special, but for gaming and video work I want a good video card. The screen 13 in is fine with me. I would also like to stay intel, so I can still use OS 10 on it. But that is not required. Thanks for the help.
