I was holding out to see what the new MB's would bring, but i was only ever looking at the £699 MB's and since there is no new MB in this range - i'm happy to consider the now £719 base model. As a student I can get it for £618 with a free iPod Nano. Whilst I am happy to visit Crucial.com to upgrade the ram, I was wondering whether the integrated graphics would become an issue... To complicate matters, I have on order a Dell Studio 15 with the following specs. This comes in at £615 Intel C2D P8400 2.26Ghz 4GB Ram 320GB HD ATi 3450 HD 256mb dedicated graphics WLED Screen etc... Obviously considerably more bang for the buck... I am a native windows user considering the switch, and was wondering whether Vista is SO BAD that I should really be considering cancelling the Dell for the Mac. Please advise. Thanks.
