you dont need either. a 450 dollar laptop will suffice

agree with cbrunnem

unless your playing games or editing photos / videos you just dont need that much power.

The ASUS will be a little bit quicker but the mac will get better battery life.

Depends on what you are going to be using it for. Macs do pick up the chicks though because they think your an art major or graphics communication major.

Okay, this needs to be sent again. If you're just going to be surfing the web or using Microsoft Office you do not need near that amount of power. You would never even come close to using it all. Also, unless you're doing something artsy and/or for some other reason absolutely need a Mac, I would advise you to stay away from them. Apple's hardware is mind boggingly overpriced.

This is what I would suggest for you if you don't mind that it's a 17.3"

If not here's a 15.6" screen
