It turns out I need a new laptop. I am planning on going to school, not for anything like photography or other media endeavors that would need the mighty apps like Photoshop. I currently own a Powerbook but it has many things wrong with it and to just order the parts needed for it would cost the same as new machine. However, to try to save money I have been thinking of (gulp) purchasing a netbook...if it wasn't for the "Windows" factor that is what I would get, but good God I love OSX!!! It's easy and just plain efficient. I don't need a god-awful fast machine. My only major concerns are the battery time, high heat (it would be on my lap a lot of the time) and having wireless. I was even thinking of getting the Mac Book Air, but don't know too much about it. I'm sure all these questions could be addressed by doing a search, but with a 2-month old on my hands I could barely get this post out. Anyone with either netbook, Mac Book or Mac Book Air experience please let me know what y'all think. I have yet to find a netbook whose battery times could compete with a Mac Book...that would be the deciding factor, I guess. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
