    I'm replacing my laptop, a Dell Inspiron.

    I use the machine primarily for PowerPoint presentations with heavy graphics, audio and moving images. I typically build the presentations on my desktop (a PC) and then bring them over to the laptop.

    I'm considering an Apple laptop, but I need to know that my PP presentations will be 100% cross-compatible between the PC and the Mac. I don't want to build a presentation on the PC and then have to do a major overhaull just to run it on the Mac.

    Otherwise, I'll replace it with another Dell (and yes, I am limited to Dell or Mac). Any suggestions on a particular Dell replacement, and certain features, are welcomed.

    if i were to go with a dell, and price was not an issue, i would go with an 8600. check out the specs here:

    http://www1.us.dell.com/content/prod...=19&l=en&s=dhs

    it is a pretty good computer. i had the opportunity to use one for a couple of weeks and was very happy with the performance.

    i am not sure about anything mac as i have not used one since college. GO BLUE!!!

    if i were not limited to those brands and price were not an issue i would check out this toshiba p10:

    and its big brother p25:

    i currently own a toshiba laptop (5105-s501) and have played with those above for a few weeks. simply put great computers.
