    Personally I will never recommend any pre-built PC. They are all a rip off, you can buy the same parts and build the PC yourself for 60% of the cost.

    But anyway, just pick the one that looks better. They are all pretty much the same hardware wise besides the Apple MacBook Pro which only has 4GB ram, small ass screen, and crazy over priced.

    The Apple MacBook Air is pretty much the same thing as the Pro but cheaper and 4GB more ram. But if your not gaming on this thing or running software 4GB is good enough.

    The HP ProBook does have the best processor of them all.

    Bestbuy loads up their pre-built PCs with bloatware. It's a major pain removing all of the crap.

    That aside, one of the two HP's are what you want to go for. Macs are trash. End of story. Unless you browse Facebook in your favorite scarf while listening to the Beatles drinking your Starbucks.. The two HP's will also allow you to run every IM tool you ever need.

    Also I agree with above - you can get something that is almost as good or even better than what you listed for $300 less. Check out NCIX, they are Tier 1 when it comes to building PCs. Newegg is okay, too.

    if you in IM and need to run tools then you need windows OS and not mac. So try and go for HP one. Macs are crazy overpriced.

    I would also recommend HP labtops, been using them for almost 10 years with minimal issues. Noisy fans and hinges can become an issue after a year or 2 generally, but any technician worth their salt can fix it up quite quickly. Always had trouble with toshiba, dell, and other brands... fried power adapters (internally), ram issues, overheating etc

    Mac is not trash you can use your windows tools as you use on your windows pc. Also you can use a virtual machine to enjoy the same tools on mac. Its cost yes but what ever you do on your PC you can do on iMac or MacBook. So just choice what you like and you will be able to fix everything in your needs with a bit searching and setting up your machine.

    Agree the HPs. But personally I would look for one that comes with an SSD.

    I use a mac-pro but I would suggest the HP Probook, However see if you can find one with a SSD instead of HDD as the computer will operate faster, especially boot times and coming in&out of hibernation.

    Great advise guys! How do I build my own PC. I looked at NCIX and Newegg but don't see anything that will let me build me own. When building it what would you guys add to make sure its top notch. Thanks!

    Out of those, either the HP Pavilion or the Probook. Pavilion's I5-6400T desktop class processor perform better than Probook's I7-6500U mobile class processor, but this just a matter of performance VS mobility.

    I dont like Apple product

    NCIX are pretty awesome dudes, contact them and tell them what you want to build

    I used to work with them back in the late 90's for high end video edit systems we used to build

    Most recently I replaced my aging Lenovo T500 with another Thinkpad and I got it from NCIX

    Bought upgraded ram and when it started to give me BSOD I took the ram back it got exchanged on the spot no questions asked
