get a $800 laptop. no diff in performance between it and a more expensive sony. and if you only need to run ms office, it will probably come with home and student version. drop a few google apps on it (picasa, earth, gmail, calendar, desktop) and you should be satisfied.
Which is a better buy? Orignally PC user, willing to switch to Mac. Is it worth it? Mainly buying a laptop as a toy. Only really need microsoft office apps. Please someone help me out.
