    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.

    Yes, congrats! Be sure to post back on how it runs for you, battery life, etc. Many of us are curious to know about the new ones!
