    Problem.

    Bluetooth on my laptop has become sketchy.
    Either the bluetooth logo/program is in the tray at boot and then disappears after or it is never there at all. And when it's not there my headphones don't function, even if they are connected before it disappears.

    I've tried starting bluetooth via the Start menu and also manually starting BTTray.exe. Nothing changes.
    Any clue as to what's up? Are there any other programs out there I could use to connect via bluetooth?

    I'm stuck between going for a MacBook Pro or MacBook Air for university. My current laptop is too big and heavy to carry around and Gofre's postings about MacBooks are swaying me.

    They seem so overpriced but attractive.

    I would have gone with the MacBook 13" if it had dedicated graphics, but it doesn't so I'm going for either the Vaio S or Envy 14.

    The Air is very light, I've carried one in my bag and hardly noticed it was there. The Pro is more likely to ruin your shoulders, but does have more power/£££ plus better connectivity and shiz. Neither are any cop for gaming, like Jake said there's no proper GFX, but they work very well for other tasks.

    Oh, and the Mac screens are brilliant. When/if I can afford it, I'm going to get the £740 Thunderbolt screen for home use. :coma:

    The problem pretty much is the weight and size. Since the screen size of both MacBooks can be the same it comes down to thickness and weight. On one side, the Pro has more power and better perks but then the Air is really thin and light.

    I'd rather not get another one like the laptop I have now, which is heavy. Since I can't compare weights, that's the crossroads I'm at right now.

    13" MBP is 2kg, if you know how much your current laptop weighs you can compare it to that. The Air doesn't compare to anything, it's too light. :p:

    Agreed. Bloody lovely monitors for working on. I use them at work - much nicer than the older Dell models.
