I am not so sure about that... :thoughtful: Lets compare a laptop from Apple and one from Dell. Apple MacBook Cost: 11.995 SEK 2.0GHz 2 GB RAM Memory 160 GB Hard drive 128MB Graphic card

Indeed, but anybody considering switching from a PC to a Mac or from a Mac to a PC does need to think about their software investment. While some companies permit people to change their license when they change platform, others do not.

"change their license" that is true but you may have to get a different version of the software which is why many do not allow you to change....

Open office is available for Windows, Mac, and most Nix

http://www.openoffice.org/

FOR FREE :rolleyes:

Does it work with word documents, can non open office users open my documents, etc these days? Otherwise it's still pointless. :thoughtful:

You can also get microsoft office for free:P

Hehe, yes. You just have to travel to the bay of pirates. ;)

I Open Office at home :D and have to Word at work :( . Never have a problem going between the two (including pics and charts) provided I remember to save as a .doc to e-mail documents to work. Word does not support .odt , but M/Soft promise to do so shortly, as a result of EU anti competition action.

You will be able to upgrade to Windows 7 and Microsoft will most likely offer you a "deal" to do that since they want to shed themselves of supporting too many versions of the OS. When they do, go for it because all of the enhancements will be in Windows 7, Vista is dead.

Hmmm. I'm not so sure. I like Vista, but it really wasn't much of an improvement on XP and 7 will not be much of an improvement on Vista. People should think carefully about whether an upgrade is really worthwhile.

You are making the assumption that you will have a choice! Businesses refused to move from XP to Vista and Windows 7 is Microsofts answer. They cannot support 3 versions of the OS. If they win in getting business to move from XP to Windows 7 you will see support of Vista vanish in a year.

Vista will be supported until at least 2012.

Well, after I switched graphic card and upgrade my RAM memory my power supply failed on me. I have a ordered a new one but it seems unlikely I will get my computer up and running before the end of next week.

That also means I still have no Vista. Heck, I dont even have a working computer yet! :mellow:
