<p>I'm currently in the market for a computer and I've read a ton of forum post on here and other websites...here's my situation. </p>
<p>I already have a PC desktop with i5 processor and it runs the Adobe CS5 suite to perfection, but my school requires that I have a laptop for class, I'm taking web design and digital media....exciting stuff!</p>
<p>Anyway I've heard that mac's are for the "creatives" but I've never really understood the argument because they run almost all of the same programs...at least in my case Adobe CS5.
So I have 2K to spend and I initially wanted to get the 13" macbook pro because I don't need a ton of power b/cuz of my desktop but I wanted something that could run Adobe smoothly.
After looking at the 13" computers I think a 15" would be the better option because of the screen real estate. </p>
<p>I've seen alot of other laptops and really can't make a decision the hp envy, some from asus, dell (I've never really had a problem with them), and a few others. </p>
<p>So my question is this ... I want this laptop to last the entire time I'm in school I don't mind paying the premium for a 15" macbook pro but only if it's going to suite my needs. I understand you get more power with PC but the longevity is a big concern and my other two PC's kinda crapped out after a couple years...I've never had an apple so I've only heard of how long they last. </p>
<p>What do you guys think? A computer that needs to be able to run Adobe CS5 and pretty much nothing else with ease. Already have a powerful desktop so have a lower end computer is okay I just need a decent battery with enough power to run adobe cs5.</p>
<p>Thanks for your help</p>
