I'm thinking about getting a macbook for my wife as early as this week. She has grown very tired and impatient of her pc's crashing and virus problems. I know there are rumors of a new aluminium casing and of course we know leopard is coming out. I'm actually not too concerned with this as the OS can always be installed later (if indeed it's any good) and we're both happy with the current macbook design. The current macbook specs are also more than enough for my wife's intended use. Of course if we want to install leopard later, we'll need to buy it. I'll need to buy it for my mbp anyway so again, not an issue. I guess my question is, am I forgetting to consider anything? Thanks for the advice.
