If u are getting apple,dont get a MACBOOK get a MACBOOK PRO but thats very expensive.
To frozen,well OS X LEOPARD is the reason that many buy MAC,its really a very good OS,excellent security,less bugs than windows,its really good for someone who doesnt game.
What's wrong with Mac? I love the way they design the machine.
Been tested my friend's macbook, love the usability & performance.
I think what differentiate MB and MBP are their integrated graphics card and screen size. Probably I will not need MBP. I don't need high performing task. I don't like big screen size either. It drains the battery fast and not easy to bring.
The design is incredibly hard on the hardware itself and incredibly hard to service and upgrade - something apple is great at sticking a good price tag on.
As for the OS, I've never had a problem with windows, I don't have a reason to switch. My experiences with Mac OS X have never been positive. I always find the way it displays information counter-intuitive. I just hate the way everything is layed out. Especially the title bar split thing. It's just stupid, IMO.
For another $500, I don't think the Mac has enough pros to be worth it over a PC and a user with a head.
I also preferred my IBM A1 design over the design of the macbooks themselves. But that's opinion.
