Here are the specs and details of each as shown online:

I can get the Lenovo for about $ 806 and the Macbook for $ 1049 although the Macbook will come with an 8gb iPod touch ($ 199 value) and an HP F4480 All-in-One Printer (~$ 60 value). Money really isn’t an issue for me. If I sell the IPod and printer, it’ll be around the same price anyway. I just need a laptop that will last long and can handle all the media-related tasks I do ie. playing movies and some video editting.

I love both laptops, but I also hear mixed reviews for both. I like the Lenovo’s specs the best even though the Mac’s graphics card is of higher quality and I hear that Lenovos are pretty durable. On the other hand, I also heard that Macs are designed for entertainment, so despite its lower quality specs, such as its 2Core Duo vs. the Lenovo’s i5 processor, it should be more efficient than the Lenovo. Not being computer guru, I have no way to tell if these remarks are true. Can you guys please help me decide on which laptop to buy? Thanks!!!
I am a student, so I will be able to get the Mac deal that I mentioned above at my school.
