I know this has been made before, but technology changes so whatever. I am a macbook pro user, have had mine since 2008 and I think it's finally time for me to get a new laptop. If money wasn't an object, I would get the Macbook Air because I love Mac, am used to the OS, etc. However, for $1000 (or more), I can't justify it since I don't use my laptop for a ton of stuff.
So PC people, recommend me some laptops, I would want to keep it under $500 since I really don't need it for anything fancy (mostly just Microsoft Office, which I wouldn't purchase with the laptop).
