Hi guys !

I'd like to change my laptop for a new one in september and i'm hesitating between two :

MacBook ( First Price dual core can't remember the config ...)

OR

ASUS M51SN
Dual Core T9300 2,5Ghz 6Mo
Geforce 9500 Gs 512 Mo
3Go Ram
250 Go 5400 Rpm Sata
...

Prices are about the same ~1000€

The Mac is slower and the gpu is crappy ( no hd ... )
but it's a mac ! -> long battery, Mac Os...
But unfortunately dual boot for Dj Decks, Traktor ( i only have the pc version ) and Nuendo ( and i don't want to buy them for mac... )

On the other hand the asus is vista only ( i don't know if i can switch back to xp because of the drivers and the intel turbo memory )

So if anyone has any advice ! i'll take it !

I don't think Vista should be a problem.
It's running fine on my 2Ghz/2GB RAM laptop, so it will probably run fine on the asus as well.

So I guess it mainly depends on what you want to do with it.
djDecks will have a mac version, but if there are more programs that you would have to boot into windows for, then the asus might be easier to use.

I've got a M50sv-a1, and it's top shelf. Has great DPC latency (read: no drop outs!) compared to other brands *cough cough dell cough cough* and best of all, a 2 year warranty..

and yes the m51 will run XP.. i've got it on my m50 with no problems, and the fine folks over at notebookreview.com with their asus owner's lounge have exactly the drivers you need.

cheers!
