I need your help ladies!

Ok, so for a while now I've been thinking that I really need to invest in a laptop computer. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my iMac, but I've realized how much better my life would be if I incorporated a laptop into the mix. I feel like I am completely out of the loop when I'm back here

In my office

At the back of the house

Working on Pictures

while my poor husband hangs out by himself in the living room :(

I understand that I would STILL be on the computer, but at least I would be spending time with him as well. Anyway, long story short, I have NO idea what I should get. As far as I know, a Mac is the best out there, but I just don't think I can fork out that kind of cash right now!

So, here's where you girls come in! What do you think? Do you have a laptop that you just love? If so, please tell me about it! It doesn't have to be anything fancy. I just ask for enough "juice" to download my Photoshop onto, and be able to get internet connection. I still plan on using my precious Mac for all my big projects!


  1. hmm, i won't be much help here because i have a mac laptopn that i absolutely love... luckily, it was a gift from my dad so we didn't have to shell out the big bucks, otherwise i might not have it ;) good luck! love your photography blog by the way... i just visited for the first time the other day!

  2. Hey girl.. Okay so I don't really know BUT... I have a dell and love it EXCEPT for stupid Vista! If it were me and I had to do it all over again I'd probably save up for a mac OR get a dell but without vista.
    The main problem I have with Vista is it is SO slow to boot up.. BUT.. when Casey and I ordered our wedding pictures the "proof disk" that the photographer gave us didn't cooperate with Vista (like it was suppose to) and we ended up with an album of ALL the wrong photos.. so it may not work with your photography stuff.
    I'd LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a mac!!
    Sorry.. that probably doesn't help at all.

  3. Girl...I hate to tell you this...but I am absolutely in love with my MacBook. I had a Dell the first two years of law school and it was actually one of the nicer ones...but I just couldn't stand it. Then, I finally gave in and purchased my first MacBook, and my life has been so freaking much better!! I know they are expensive, but in my opinion, they are well worth the investment. I know that probably isn't what you wanted to hear, but I just wanted to give you my honest opinion.

    Oh, but if you do decide to purchase a PC (in which case, my vote is the cute little colorful Dells...), I'd wait until October to do so. Daniel (who is like a total computer nerd...umm...I mean "computer genius") said that Windows was coming out with a new Operating System to replace Vista in October and that it would be sooo much better! Good luck finding the perfect computer, girlie! :)

  4. I too wanted a mac but $1200 was a bit much....actually a lot much!
    I have a Toshiba that I love. I did a little upgrading to it and I think I paid about $550
    It has a big screen and lots and lots of memory..that was the upgrade.
    good luck with your decision. let us all know what you decide~

  5. I would love to have a Mac, but I have a Sony Vaio and it has been great!

  6. I have a Sony Vaio and haven't had any problems...besides Vista- it's so annoying! So yes, if you do get something else listen to Kristen and wait till October. You'll save yourself a few panic attacks. =)

  7. My dad just got a very nice Toshiba, at Wal Mart of all places. I think it was about $400 and even my engineer DH thinks it's an excellent laptop.
