+ 0 Votes Lots of laptop have ddr3 Forum Surfer Updated - 5 years ago And 802.11n...and ssd's. It's not really a war anymore except for fanatics, it's more of a preference thing now. I was recently given $1400 to pick up a laptop for work. I really wanted a macbook and I intended to load xp or vista on it...mostly due to tons of networking tools that I use to manage a large cisco shop. I wanted at least 4 gigs of memory,802.11n, bt. any size 7200 rpm drive and the intel c2d T9600 processor. I also wanted it to be portable, but larger than 13.3"...like 14.1". Macbook pro 15" with my specs? Way over my budget, even after multiple vendor consultations. Closest I could get was $1600 for the 2.4ghz model with only 2 gigs memory, still over budget. I could have gotten the 13.3" model (still not up to my desired specs), but 13.3" is just too small. I ended up settling on a latitude e6400, with dockicking station and the above specs <i>and</i> a docking station. I was convinced by many that when comparing similarly spec'd apples to other vendor's products the prices were close. I found out otherwise, at least with laptops. Apple spends too much time on frilly exterior design or style imo that I don't care for. Everyone else is releasing desktops with Intel's latest core i7 processor and triple channel ddr3 memory, Mac must be busy designing a shiny new box to put it in. + 0 Votes Is This THE Ballmer! mattie289404 5 years ago RedMond Wash..ballmerrock..tell me its true...you wildman... + 0 Votes What? ballmerrocks 5 years ago You are obviously one of the higher educated Mac people!
