I know there are a lot of questions on this already, but it would be nice to get a personal opinion on it.

But the Apple has the better color display. The sony's are usually good enough but have me asking how the photo editor (you?) will manage color. Will they add the usual Pantone Huey or similar?

I agree with Apple's display especially with the option of the matte screen. And in the past I've never used a calibrator, so it was always trial and error. I'm leaning more towards the Mac but the only concern I have with that is the price and the fact that I need to buy editing software which is pretty pricey. The Sony laptops include an Adobe Bundle, but not actually CS5 (or whatever the newest PS is). I guess my next question would be if I were to get the Mac should I save up to buy the 15 inch with the matte screen and better editing programs? What suggestions would you have for software?

I'm shopping the new Ultrabooks. That Acer S3 looks very nice for the price. But for color I bet I'm going to have to get the Pantone Huey!

The 15 inch is the sweet spot between a big display DESKTOP style and a laptop. The 13 inch models aren't bad but a tad small for me.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
