I am looking to buy a new Macbook for the quickly approaching school year just looking for some advice. Im a student, and on a budget, so I thought Id opt for the Macbook instead of the Macbook Pro, but upgrade the memory to 2GB and perhaps the hard drive to 160GB as well. I dont do any intense graphic work or gaming so I didnt think Id need the superior graphics of the Macbook Pro. I also need to be able to run Windows on my computer for school as there are some applications Ill need for the business program Im in that will require Windows. I was thinking Id get a virtualization software like Parallels or VMWareFusion does anyone have any experience with either/recommend one over the other? My program does a lot of Excel intensive work and Ive heard that running Excel through Microsoft Office 04 on the Mac can be very slow when working with some of the more intense functions so I was thinking Id just run my currently owned Office 03 on Windows until they release an Intel based Office for Macs. How does this sound? Am I making a mistake in not upgrading to the Macbook Pro? I dont think Id need the graphics, and am happy with the smaller screen, but I know on the Macbook Ill have the RAM maxed out at 2GB, so I wont be able to upgrade later. Id like this computer to last me for at least 3 years of solid performance. Any suggestions? Thanks!
