I plan to buy a notebook for school and I will be using Office a lot (I use Word, Excel and PowerPoint a lot for work as well). In addition to that, I can spend hours in Photoshop and Illustrator just designing things for my own pleasure, so those are obvious things I will buy. I use the internet but any of the notebooks seem to have no problems with that. I rarely, if ever play video games and I'd much rather spend my time writing, photography (digital or film) and listening to Music (40GB 4G iPod). I'm also somewhat of a stickler for speed but as long as I can run iTunes, Internet, Photoshop and Illustrator at the same time without massive slowdown, I'm ok. What do you guys recommend? I've read a lot here and not having extensive use with Macs, I really can't decide.
