Yeah... quad vs dual and 4GB vs 2GB and both have the same GPUs which are plenty for video editing... yeah the HP kills the MAC. I love how the little kiddies on the Youtube keep saying that the anti virus and the video editing software will make the HP cost more...

Ok Avast 4.8 Home edition + Comodo Internet Security = $0 for some of the best protection out.

Pinnicle Studio Enhanced = $100

Guess what? Yeah the HP is still cheaper...

What is the 130GT????

I know it's probably rebranded.... but isn't the 8800gt the 240GTS? ...so wouldn't that make the 9600GT a 230GT? ...so wouldn't a 130 be crappier?

Even if Windows 7 only improves slightly between now (RC) and retail, Apple should be concerned.

I'm not really an Apple hater, I would own one of their laptops if they were more accurately priced to the actual hardware you receive.

I've also hated on Windows plenty in the past, but I could not believe how responsive and slim Windows 7 7077 felt on my dated Core 2 Duo processor.

That's only performance wise, on the visual side, everything looks pretty in Windows 7.

Some classically stupid comments on YouTube. "Fast, under-sized memory is so much better than adequate capacity". I totally know what I'm doing when it comes to knowing everything about computers.

I'd choose a Mac over HP. Anyone who says Macs suck is a PC fanboy. Speaking of sucking... these commercials are pretty horrible. It's fine that they use actors and that the commercials are clearly fake, but still I hate the people in them and their completely fake thought process when choosing a computer. And just when I think the commercials can't get any more annoying, a new one comes out. I thought "Jean Paulo" was as bad as it would get, until they had the commercial with that UGLY mophead kid and his douche mom. It doesn't help that the kid and his mom are completely retarded and I always laugh at how the kid clearly doesn't know anything about computers and the mom is even more clueless and just goes along with everything the kid wants.

The kid wants a laptop that's good for gaming. Why? I've never understood why people would shell out even more money to play games on a system that will still be horribly underpowered but cost a lot more and be extremely uncomfortable to play any games on with extra peripherals and stuff. On top of that, they go crazy over blu-ray for it. Once again, another completely worthless addition to a laptop. If the kid wants to play games and watch blu-ray movies, he should get a PS3 for a lot less and then he'll probably have enough extra to do any non-gaming activities that he wants to do, such as locking himself in his room downloading 2GB of porn a day.

Is this article supposed to be scoffing the PC ads for attempting to point out the value of PCs? I think the negative comments in these MS ads towards macs are much less immature (if not non-existent) compared to the overstatements in the anti-pc ads by Apple. This series from MS seem to even call the macs pretty and popular with teens which is something of a compliment. If we're going to critique what MS is doing by trying to modestly defend themselves, then where are all the critiques of the negative Mac ads on Tom's?

Why do people think that you need powerful CPU for a video editing? You can get things done with core 2 duo like core 2 quad does with a bit more time. ppl aren't going to make Toy Story 3 with a laptop.
