    I have a question for those of you that own a MB. Currently I'm using a 17" PB and I am considering replacing it with a black MB with 2Gb of ram from MacMall. They have a pretty good deal and it is only ~$50 more than the white MB with the same configuration.

    My idea is to buy the MB and us it for school to run windows apps through Parallels that I need. MacMall has parallels for $9.99 after rebate which is a great deal. Once I've saved up some money I will buy a 17" MBP and pass the MB off to my wife.

    For those of you that run Parallels on a MB how is the performance. I don't run any games so the graphics card shouldn't be that big of a deal...

    Going from 17" to 13" is a pretty big change but I played on a MB and it wasn't that bad I guess. Any suggestions would be helpful.
