"For Mac OS newbies, the most important thing is to decide *if Mac OS X is right for you*. I know many people who made the switch for the wrong reason (just because the MBP looks so good) only to regret it later when "work" reality hits and apps aren't quite as expected. If you have decided that you can work with Mac OS X apps, go for it - you will be a very happy user." This is a quote from a review about the new 15" (and other) MBP's. Link : http://www.ubergizmo.com/15/archives/2010/04/macbook-pro-review.html The main reason I want a MBP is the battery life, I will most likely be getting the 13" pro. I like the backlit keyboard and al. design, which is why I am not getting the MacBook. My question is regarding the switch from Windows to OSX, I know I will be able to adapt and learn the new features and differences in a few days/weeks, but I was wondering if from any of your experiences there is something you miss about Windows or something you find you cannot do at all on OSX. I dont do any type of editing, just browsing, downloading movies, songs, saving pictures, emailing and alot of homework. I figured that there would be alot of different apps for the Mac to accomplish some of the things you can do on Windows, but I'm probably taking alot of stuff for granted right now and assuming it can be done on the Mac as well. If this is in the wrong forum, please move.
