When I first tested a MacBook (the unibody model launched in 2008) I was amazed by the design and quality of construction but, as a user of Windows, I encountered difficulties in adapting to the operating system platform Mac OS X.
Now, the interaction was more balanced. I can no longer deliver some superlative words about how good it looks and how compact it is, because the one released in 2009 is not much different from the version put on the market in 2008. Instead, I got used to the operating system and I can tell you in all sincerity that I like it more and more, every day. Do not get me wrong. The laptop is not perfect – neither in design nor in the hardware and the operating system. Therefore I started to write this review, to tell you about these little flaws – as well as about the strengths. Let’s start with design.
Imperfections for a perfect look
After I offered my eyes a treat by watching it and turning it on all sides, I found a few drawbacks. I was no adamantly looking for flaws or anything, I just noticed them as I was playing around with the laptop:
-the lower end of the keyboard ends at right angles, which causes you some discomfort because that is exactly where the wrists rest;
-when you hold it on your lap, the laptop heats up quite strongly on the left side which, again, is an element of discomfort. This happens because of insufficient ventilation. One ventilation port is located on the top edge just under the display. Hot air is discharged directly on frame, as well as on the screen. With older models, in time, this air started leaving some black marks on the computer in the hot air evacuation areas, but let us hope that this is not the case here, with this particular model;
-The computer has no status LED for the hard drive disk and wireless connections.
Some have criticized the keyboard (arrows and Enter crowded in small places), while others expressed their desire to buy the black version of the Macbook. Unfortunately, there is no black version for this computer. I personally am not bothered by the keyboard or the fact that it only comes in white. I am sure that only a small fraction of users would find these things as bothersome enough to be considered shortcomings.
Overall, the design is a 9 out of 10, and the only ones that can compete with the MacBook are the Sony Vaio laptops, and maybe Adamo from Dell, but the latter costs at least twice as much.
Let’s be clear: you cannot speak of the best business laptop computers without the MacBook Air, and the best business laptop computers get some fierce competition from this item, which is small, light, but extremely powerful and fun to use. Who could ask for more?11

We all want to know what is the best laptop that we can buy. Out on the market are a large number of different laptops from different laptop brands and some of them are last generation but there are some that are middle range laptops with prices for everybody. From my point of view, the best laptop doesn’t exist because when we go in a specialized store to buy one, we buy that laptop that fits our needs the best. Some of us need a laptop for playing last generation computer games, there are some people who need a laptop for their business, to make different projects or do search different information and these people need different laptops with different specifications. Of course there can be computers that have a very high performance and you can do both activities but this kind of laptops have a very high price.
In my opinion, the best laptop for all kind of people both business people and gamers is the Compaq Presario CQ61Z Customizable Notebook PC. Let me present you its specifications:
-Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
-AMD Turion (TM) II Dual-Core Processor M500 (2.2GHz, 1MB L2 Cache)
-4GB DDR2 System Memory (2 Dimm)
-Posible Upgrade to 250GB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive
-ATI Radeon(TM) HD 4200 Graphics w/128MB Display Cache Memory and 5-in-1 Digital Media Reader & HDMI
-15.6″ diagonal High Definition HP LED Brightview Display (1366×768)
-LightScribe SuperMulti 8X DVD+/-RW with Double Layer Support
-HP Color Matching Keyboard
-6 Cell Lithium Ion Battery
-Microsoft (R) Works 9.0
-HP Home & Home Office Store in-box envelope
I agree with the critics that this laptop is great, is more that you can desire but the processor could be better for the above standard version. The video adapter in my opinion is very good and doest need any more upgrade. The rest of the specifications are ok but I don’t think I have answered my personal question about what is the best laptop on the market. It is the Alienware’s M17x. Here are the Alienware’s M17x specifications: Dual 1GB ATI Radeon Mobility HD 4870 in CrossfireX (they work together to go faster, like cores), 8GB of DDR3 RAM, 256GB Solid State Drive (near instant loading) and Intel® Core™ i7 920XM 2.0GHz (3.2GHz Turbo Mode, 8MB Cache).
This laptop is great … it has everything you could ask for but it has only one problem. The price of Alienware’s M17x is estimated at 4400$. You have to pay a very high price for very high performance but i am very sure that you will be satisfied by it offering you the best from the best. So as you can see above, you must agree with me that these two laptops great and I am sure that if you own one you won’t have any problems with it, and if you have the possibility buy the best laptop that is perfect for you and your personality.11
