Hey all, I've read several topics on this subject, I even visited the macwiki, but it does not give me a definitive answer on my question. I've been using a windows vista computer for about... 2 years now, it's a big 17 inch packard bell. When I bought it (actually, my parents) I was really psyched, big screen, good for movies! Well, it's wearing me down right now. I experience alot of lacking in performance and the OS irritates me each day. I need a computer that is reliable and just WORKS, people who've used vista know what I mean, I guess . Anyways, When I went to my local Apple store, I tried out the macbookpro 13 inch and wanted to buy one immediately. However, over the weekend I've been looking at quite a few youtube videos about comparisements regadering the macbook aluminium and macbook pro. For some reason it looks like I'm more of a macbook person, but something doesn't feel right. I want to use a computer for everyday use: mail, browsing, an occasional photoshop/movie making session, making presentations, using word, playing music/videos from iTunes. I don't really use a SD card slot, I didn't even know what firewire is. Still there's something that doesn't feel right. It feels like the macbook uni is to slow for me, but this is a statement based on nothing, just my gut feeling. It doesn't make sense testing speeds in the store, since my files and apps aren't on there. I'm not a rich guy, but I've earned some $$$ the past 2 months, and I want a new, good computer that is, like I said before, reliable. I don't want to ''throwaway'' cash (like 200euros), since I want to buy an airport and new speakers. Hope someone can help me here!, Cheers!, Michiel. Could anyone help me out here?
