Ok, here's the problem. I looked through the old threads and didn't find the answer to my problem (although one came close). I have a Vaio laptop. It's 3 years old. It runs ME. The hardware is a tank - it's been through abuse like nothing else. I'm talking dropped, kicked, stepped on, etc. Anyway, the hardware hasn't given me many issues. The OS, on the other hand, well it's ME. Anyway, I've decided to switch to a PB15. I'm planning on waiting til the next release, and buying what is the current model (plus the student discount). My roommates did that with the last release. Problem is, he didn't really know what he was doing on the PC, so the switch wasn't bad. I would call myself fairly proficient with the PC. I live off the right click. All that rambling is leading me to three questions: 1) Is the PB as durable as my Vaio (is it going to break the first time it drops two feet)? 2) Have they fixed the problem with the white spots that appear on the 15s (both PB using roommates have that problem)? 3) MOST IMPORTANT: What free/extremely cheap guide is ther for me to learn shortcuts and such in switching from Win to Mac?
