Well, I've narrowed down all my options to these two laptops.
Dell Studio 15.6 inch LED 16:9 widescreen 1080p, 2.4 GHz 3 MB L2 core2duo, 4GB DDR2 RAM, 512 MB ATI HD 4570, 250GB HDD
Everyone knows the stats of the off the shelf 2.0 GHz Macbook
Dell gets better battery life on power saver, better processor, RAM and screen. Macbook is prettier, longer battery warranty and a nice touch pad too.
Graphics is comparable, Dell edges out slightly according to benchmarks on the cards.
I'm indifferent to the extra weight and size, with software the prices are about even.
Serious, intelligent comments only please
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?
