2 year old MacBook Pro or brand new windows laptop
Been made redundant at work and have been offered to buy the MacBook Pro I have been using for the job.
It's a couple of years old and has been used heavily, 10 hours a day most days. Taken a few knocks but everything works. However it does get pretty warm which is my main worry about keeping it.
For the same money I could get a new Windows 7 laptop with a similar spec to the mac.
The MacBook Pro is 17", 2.8GHZ Dual core with 4GB Ram.
My personal stance is that I like the slickness of the Macs but I wouldn't pay their prices from new, so I guess my main question is around the longevity of the Macs ?
Thanks in advance for any insights!
