  1. Hello everyone, I'm going to buy notebook, as I will need some for school and work. I've been searching for high end notebooks that can run OSx and look good, so I've reduced the number of possible choices to these two Dell XPS l502x and HP envy 14 2095 (macbooks are too pricy in my country compared to US). Both of them are similiar specs and they also look good. Dell XPS l502x i7-2630QM 2GHz to max 2.9GHz 4 cores 8 threads Nvidia GT 540M 2GB on card 6GB DDR3 1333MHz 750GB 7200RPM 15,6" WLED FullHD JBL 2.1 Waves MaxxAudio® 3 5h 14m running time 2.96 Kg (6.5lbs) 1139 € or 1546$ HP envy 14 i7-2630QM 2GHz to max 2.9GHz 4 cores 8 threads AMD HD 6630M 1GB shared memory 750GB 7200RPM 14,5" 1366x768 Beats sound system 6h running time backlit keyboard 2.52Kg (5.6lbs) 964€ or 1309$ Can you please help me choose one of these (or recommend some other similiar) which would probably run better Lion or Snow leo? Thank you in advance for any thoughs
