Looking at Apple's MacBook Pro battery at http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/features.html
With long hours and the 1,000 recharge cycles you soundly beat the usual PC laptop with 300 cycles and 2 or so hours per charge.
There are other benefits but this one is worth noting.
I appreciate that this question may have been asked bfore..Im about to buy my first laptop...and i think i want a macbook. However perhaps i could find a laptop which would suit me fine and do all i needed without having to dish out all that hard earned moolah.
I will be primarily using it to surf the web..( i spend hours doing this..usually on youtube or similiar video sharing sites)
oh and i would like to edit movies on it too...just short little movies that me and my friend make.
i am considering going travelling for 6 months before i go to college..so i guess it should be a laptop with good durability and battery life?
i apologise if my query is short on actual specs? but i am not too knowledgable onm this front..
any help would be sweet
