Life long PC user (~15 years) about to make the switch. I had been waiting for the updated MacBook, and although it wasnt as significant as I had hoped for, I cant imagine them updating the MacBooks again before August (when school starts). Regardless, I think I may take the plunge now...my current laptop is dying (cheapo Dell) and that way I can become familiar w/ the machine for a few months. Also, do you run Word on your Mac or Pages? Can you get by w/ just Pages (can you save a document like a resume as a Word doc for PC users?)? I noticed on the Apple website that I can get a $100 education discount (I'm eyeing the 2.16 white model). I heard that if I wait a while they may throw in a free iPod too. Is that true? When would that deal roll around? Is the $100 discount the best I can hope for? I noticed Amazon has it for the same price, but through a rebate. The advantage I can see from Amazon is that I would save the sales tax money, which is a chunk.
