I got a power book. best investment ever. I got a 12inch. spent about 1700$...but it kicks a lot of ass. I considered a windows laptop, but after my friend returned or sold three of his i decided to spend the extra buck on the apple.
its very compatible with pc. The networking is as easy as putting in the domain name and turning on the wireless card thats built in.
it has never froozen, lagged, or had any problems.
edit*the battery lasts about three hours. thats with normal use.
i also looked at ur dell link...i didnt know u wanted to go that low on the price..that might be a better deal if you are that tight on money.
We all get the urge...Saturday early morning...nothing to do till noon...
