At least four years

12. Please tell us about the brands that you prefer to buy from them and the brands that you don't like and explain the reasons.
I don't really have a preference, but if someone could help me out on one thing that would be great. In some aspects I want to buy a Mac and run Windows on it through bootcamp because all the apple software working in-sync is very convenient but I've read that they don't have the best hardware to run games without lag.

So PC or Mac based on what you think

13. What country do you live in?

14. Please tell us any additional information if needed.
I don't need to know until I leave for college in like 10 months so if there are any products coming out before then that would be better to wait for, tell me. 64 Bit and at least 4gigs or RAM, although I can upgrade that obviously. (But I'm kind of a noob when it comes to internal stats and stuff like that)
