Well I finally did it, I have been Macverted lol. I chose the 15 inch with standard config which is more than ample for my needs. I have always been put off by the price, not because I could not afford it, more than I felt it was overpriced, and well it still is to an extends in terms of hardware. What really sold it was the ecosystem. Once I was in the shop and found out how good ICloud was for integration I was convinced. I have an iPhone and having it all sync up beautifully without hassle is something I am looking for forward to. Of course there are other good points such as the battery life and screen quality. My only concern is to how hot it may or may not get and how the fan performs. Another thing is that I am giving up an entire library of games and apps as if I am going to go Apple then it has to be all in without messing with bootcamp etc. So for an OSX noob, what is the best tip you can give me? Are there certain must have apps? I saw word running on it and was concerned how slow it was, is there a suitable replacement as I was not convinced of the benefits of Pages. Oh and how do I partition this thing? I usually keep my music etc on a separate partition?
