Quote Exalted Wombat:Quote Scope:
If you want a machine to "rock the world", you have to realistic about your requirements.
A £300 laptop is not going to cut it.
Companies like Sony and Apple only use the latest ( and fastest ) tech & so offer outstanding performance, but at a price.
Their machines tend to be 3 or 4 times a budget PC.
You've quoted two brands that prioritise style almost as highly as performance!
It doesn't hurt to look good when going fast.
