hey there
i am about to buy a new laptop but can't decide between the MacBook and the Sony Vaio CR Series Link to Sony Vaio

well i need a laptop for the following things:

- making music (hooking up my turntables and recording of vocals)
- working (documents, graphics and web pages)

which laptop would you guys propose me for my needs? which do you think is better? and which would you personally choose and why?

thanks a lot :)

Buy one of each, that way you're covered.


Just kidding. Mac was known for music and graphics superiority. I don't know if that has changed. For docs and web pages, either will do.

Well, I'm generally an "all-Macs-suck" PC kind of person, but if your going to be doing a lot of music and graphics work on it, I'd have to say the MacBook.

Though I haven't had a chance to try a Vaio out.

I own both a PC and a Mac-- I built my desktop PC and I own a PowerBook G4. If I had the money, I wouldn't think twice about getting a MacBook. The ability to run OS X and Windows natively is a big plus.

I've got a mac book and I think it is awesome. When I was laptop shopping about 9 months ago I asked myself the same macbook vs. vaio. I couldn't understand why the macbook was so expensive, so I looked for the laptop with as near as identical hardware I could find, which was the sony. The vaio costed a couple hundred dollars more, so I went with the apple...plus I was curious about mac OS X.

Well, it's the matter of taste I should say. However you could look through the comparison reviews

This topic was posted on Christmas day. There's a pretty good chance the OP has made a decision already.
