I have OSX/x86 now. Any PC laptop he buys today that will be able to respectably run OSX next year when it actually ships is going to be WAY more than $1500. I'm running it on an IBM Thinkpad T42 with a gig of RAM and a 1.6GHz Pentium M, and it's slow as balls. The cheapy video cards that get stuck into $1500 PC laptops just can't cut it.SamARR said:get a pc and wait for osx86 to come out
The Centino stuff has lower numbers than comparable Pentium 4. You can search a comparison chart that will let you see the difference apples to apples. I just mine for grad school, surfing the net, video and picture editing. It tends to slow down when I'm editing RAW pics is Photoshop. I sure that would go away if I maxed out the ram.Clutch said:Chris, I checked Dell's website and browsed around a little bit. I guess I'm not familiar with the new processors because I thought 1.8GHz was slow nowadays? I know my Gateway laptop that is currently dying in a fire was 2.6 GHz with a Pentium 4.
Do you like your Dell? What do you use it for? How does it run?
