Choosing a laptop

Just got a new laptop. Its my 3rd laptop in the past 5 years and one would think its eacy to decide on which laptop to buy.

Price is always a consideration. The first question is - PC or a Mac ? From what I have heard a Mac notebook is so full of features and sturdy that it could last you a few years. The PC world is competitive with the race between Intel and AMD and new processors come out every few months making your new notebook outdated.

My laptop : HP dv5127cl
RAM : 2GB ( The amount of memory for processing your tasks)
Hard drive : 120 GB ( with digital cameras being more popular this is probably about 2000 hours of music, about 30 to 35 thousand photos so its probably all that I will need for a few years.
processor: Intel Centrino Duo 1.83 ghz ( its going be outdated next month as Intel introoduces Core Duo 2)

The cool features that this laptop has : a remote that fits into the laptop. It came with stereo headphones.

I have a HP computer and it has performed well so I am confident the laptop will be great

From Washington DC, Emirates is an outlier, it flies in the morning at 10.55 from Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and reaches Dubai at around 8.30 a.m. Other flights, Etihad, Qatar and flights with European stopovers take off after 9 p.m at night. I love this timing but it does cause a disagreement in my house. My wife prefers to fly Eithad due to the timings. My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flig
