Okay, this is a tough one. Macintosh, by it's own nature, is more expensive, and it's picky about programs. There are lots of programs that are Mac Compatible, but if you're not used to Macintosh, you'll be horribly confused at first (a friend let me try his Macintosh Desktop, with OS X, I think), but if you've used it, and are knowledgeable on how to use it, it will work. On the other hand, you have a PC with Windows on it. Windows, by it's own nature, is more unstable, but there's a ton of programs out there for it. Most devices will just plug in and function. But, as mentioned before me, it all boils down to what you want to do with the system, your preferred setup, and many other factors that all determine whether or not you want Mac or PC. Don't listen to the TV propaganda: Owning a PC doesn't make you a dork or nerd immediately, and Mac users aren't all friendless and alone. I know both of these firsthand: 3 of my best friends use a Mac, and I've been called anything but a dork or nerd, and use a PC (full custom, only thing left stock was the case) But, if you really want that Macbook, and want to spend the micro-fortune to get it, feel free. Me, I'd go for a tablet... Sorry for my long post, Madrias

deepens on who's buying it. if parents are get the mac, if you are the dell mini, unless you have a high paying job or getting a good deal on one used.

Thank you all for your information, i think ill go with a macbook, im just so used to the same windows disappointments, ill try to see about macintosh. Thank you and ill report tomorrow what i get!

Macbooks r good for school work....multimedia and some typing up documents and powerpoints (u need to pay extra for the microsoft programs)....whereas the dell mini has a small keyboard but has the free microsoft programs...im not sure what it has for multimedia though. also, the dell doesnt have much storage maybe 16-32 gb whereas the macbook would have 120 gb to 500gb. If you are a multimedia person, get a macbook....if you are purely an internet surfer just get the netbook its 1/3 the price of a mac.

It is strange that you are picking between those two. The macbook is a mid ranged notebook, and the dell is a netbook. Netbooks are basically made purely for internet surfing, and basic computing needs. If you just surf the web, get the dell and save 700 bucks, but if you need to do any real computing get the macbook.

i think that you get a mac because it has better virus protection,faster internet,safari,more space,i-pods,and i-tunes

what do you want to do with it?
