Hi, I'm pretty new to the forum. I've been a long time Apple fan, and waiting for this MacBook for a long time. I wish I could post up pics and all, but its still sitting in its box cause I'm having second thoughts. I've been waiting for a new intel powerbook, but I'm not sure I got what I want and need. I never had an Apple notebook before, primarily because of speed concerns, but the MacBook seems to have that resolved. The things that concern me are expandability and video features. Currently, I am using a Thinkpad T42 which must be returned rather shortly as I leave my internship position. Before all this commotion about MacBook's, I was pretty set on getting either a Z61t/T60 or X60. After the release of the MacBook Pros, I was close to buying one, but I was waiting for something smaller. When the MacBook came out, I bought a black one rather hastily. It looked pretty and I thought I wanted it, but I'm having second thoughts. At the Apple store I noticed that weightwise, its still about as heavy as the MacBook Pro 15.4", whats up with that? All of the IBMs are lighter and offer more durability and screen real estate. Theres also no ExpressCard slot, but what good is an ExpressCard slot anyway. Are there any things that people would use them for? I can think of an EVDO card down the way, but theres always bluetooth tethering.. The other issue is the integrated video. I'm not a heavy video user. I do watch a significant amount of movies on my laptop. Does the MacBook have a SVIDEO out? I saw VGA and DVI cables, no SVIDEO. I'm not a big PC gamer, but I would also like to ocassionaly use Final Cut Pro and some other digital video features. Would the difference be significant in my circumstances? How about hardware acceleration in the OS X itself? Will the operating run slower because of the lack of a dedicated GPU? I paid $1399 for the black MacBook, and the MacBook Pro 2.0 would be $1799. At the price, it seems like such a value, especially compared to IBM/Lenovo notebooks. But it just seems to lack the balance. 2.0ghz core duo, but 512mb of ram (I plan to upgrade to 2GB anyhow) and integrated video. I am on the edge of making the switch, should I open the box, go for the MacBook Pro, or maintain the status quo and stick with Lenovo?
