    Well I just bit the bullet and bought a new macbook. As some of you are aware I did not have good luck with my last two macbooks but as my last one just had too many problems to continue using, I sent in for repair and bought one of the new models. I really can't say that I'm too confident that this macbook will end up being more reliable in the long run but as I don't want to fork out for a macbook pro at the moment, I had few other options. I actually came very close to buying a think pad T series for their great build quality but in the end, I thought that I would give mac another chance. Anyway wish me luck everyone

    Congrats! I thought about getting a pro, but money and reason said I needed a macbook. Not one regret though, every time I use it its like the first time all over again. I will never return to Windows :D

    me too, me too!

    After years of PC use, I decided in January (many, many hours spent doting over Apple products in the local Apple Store and drooling) to purchase an iMac. I have been more pleased than I could have ever imagined. I work 8 hours a day, 5 days a week on a PC and since I've gotten my iMac, I've found myself highly frustrated with the delayed response of my work PC along with the many error messages and general disfunctionality of PC/Windows. I fell so in love with my iMac that I went back to the Apple store on this past Friday and purchased my first MacBook.

    I am more than satisfied and recommend switching from PC to Mac to everyone!

    Once you go Mac, you'll never go back!

    Your experience is identical to mine when I switched to MAC after 20 plus years of windows. When IM at work doing something on a PC I continually am reminded why I left windoz!

    I couldn't be any happier than with my iMac and new macbook. Best thing though is OSX!

    Welcome aboard! ;)

    Thanks...I've become slightly obsessed with Mac/Apple articles, forums, magazines, conversations, etc. My boyfriend says it's like I joined a cult and am trying to recruit everyone...I just can't help myself...I'm in looooove! :p

    Congratulations on the new Macbook. I've been using an iMac for the past 5 years ( I upgraded to the new iMac 5 months ago ) and am currently waiting for delivery on my new white Macbook. I can't wait. It's my first laptop. I was given the use of one for a week recently and fell in love with it immediately.
    Enjoy everyone that has bought one recently.
