- The software on the Mac is worlds better than on the HP. I'm not an AV guy, but Cyberlink DVD Suite and the other software listed isn't on the same level as what you'd get on a Mac.
- The Mac quality is worlds better than on the HP. In our family we've had Dells, Acers, HPs, Lenovos, etc. and every single one of them has had something break after a year or so. My MBP is three years old this year and except for one ding on the cover where I dropped something on it, you'd never be able to tell.
- You can get a very well equipped MBP for way less than $2,799.

From a local news article, Peppers comments that he "Knows and feels very confident in the decision."
Doesn't sound like he's planning on changing his mind in the next week, which is great for us.

If we have over a third of the donations but less than a third of the money, it sounds like we still have some work to do on our per capita amounts. Get to work people!

Yeah, the fact that it's PSU makes me a bit nervous because of O'Brien's obvious recruiting abilities.
Then again, they're not Biel eligible for a couple years after he would arrive, so I think that plays in our favor significantly.

Looks like it's been pulled off that website. If you're on iOS, you can check them out here: vine://user/913321960073732096
Also, that's some of the funniest stuff I've seen in months.

Maybe texting and taking calls during job interviews is up, but I have a really hard time believing that the relative frequency of "bad interviewers" is increasing. There always have been and always will be people that take interviews very seriously, and the same goes for people that feel entitled to jobs and see interviews as a formality. There are just new ways for the latter group to make their shortcomings visible.

If he's no longer playing sports there, why would the school need to pay his tuition? You can always find a way to spin it if you want to hate someone/something, but this would happen just about anywhere.

This. I had the pleasure of spending maybe a total of ten hours on Stanford's campus a couple summers ago and it's just unreal. If he decides before going out there, that would be great, because you never know what could happen when he sees what they've got to offer.

Agreed on gaming. I've got a PC that I built for that purpose, among others.
Understanding technology should not exclude you from owning a Mac. Walk through a computer science department sometime and you'll see just as many Macs as PCs.
The business model argument is fine, that's up to you. If you disagree with their practices, I can't argue with that.
However, I haven't been "forced" to replace anything. My three year old MBP still runs just as well as it did the way I bought it. I upgraded the RAM, but only because I was doing some coding for large multithreaded scientific optimization programs and needed it. I haven't been "forced" to buy any expensive accessories, either. The "new pretty box" they use is a single piece of aluminum that is still in as good of shape now as it was when I bought it. The hinge is still great, the keyboard is still great, no chunks have fallen off or cracked, etc. etc. No one is stopping other manufacturers from upping their build quality, they just don't do it.
There's no right answer here, all comes down to personal preference.

That's kindof what I expect him to do. He was talking about committing after his season with a bunch of guys from his team, so doing it after his Stanford visit would definitely be a lot sooner than he expected.

Hooray for sweeping generaliztions about what will work best for everyone!
I prefer a laptop, even when I'm sitting on a couch watching videos. I don't want to have to prop up a tablet on my knees while I'm lying down.
At work I'm bouncing around between meetings and working from all over the place on our campus. Don't have a cubicle or a desk or an office.

Yep, the Mac/PC debate is a bit silly. However, the Apple/HP/Lenovo/Asus/etc. debate is pretty one sided except for price. I love my MBP for the hardware more than for the software. I'd take a MBP running Windows over another brand running OSX in a heartbeat.

What your chart doesn't show is that:
That said, you can go through a few Windows notebooks for the price of one MacBook. I have nothing against Windows, I use it every day at work and actually really like Windows 7. If you're looking for inexpensive but still functional, a $500-$800 Windows laptop would be just fine. If you're looking for a way to do a lot of video editing and are willing to spend a bit more for quality of materials and polished software, a Mac is the right choice.
I don't know anyone personally that has bought a Mac and decided that it was a poor decision.
