Are you thinking of using boot camp for the mac?
We have three HP laptops and a few months ago I would have urged you to go for HP.
Each of the three HP laptop screens have gone down. One of them twice in last three months, luckily it was six days before the warranty ran out. The mouse pad on one is developing a hole after just over 12 months use. I mentioned this to HP when it went for the screen to be repaired. HP did not replace it.
HP were not amused. Me to:-(
So I will not be buying HP again.
