So long story short, on New Years Day my barely 2 year old Toshiba laptop decided to help me celebrate new years by deciding it needed a new motherboard and hard drive. It, of course, is no longer under warranty. Happy New Years to me. Ive decided it is not worth the money I spent on it to get it fixed. I want to replace my laptop with another laptop and am considering a Mac. However, all I use my computer for is email, the internet, online banking, iTunes and watching videos (mostly ice network and YouTube; some on-line tv shows and dvds). Im too computer illiterate to do anything more than that. So, is a Mac worth the money if that is all Im going to be using it for? In the past Ive had an hp desktop which I was very happy with, a Dell laptop (which I would never consider again) and the Toshiba. Basically, I am looking for a dependable laptop that I will not have to replace every 2 years. Thanks.
