I have never owned a Mac but have only heard amazing things about them which has left me considering about getting a Macbook tomorrow. The only problem being whether or not to actually purchase one or to stick with another HP laptop. The models of each contender are as follows: HP dv 4 - 1275mx (Copy/Paste) <http://reviews.cnet.com/laptops/hp-pavilion-dv4-1275mx/4505-3121_7-33496196.html?tag=mncol;lst> or 13 Aluminum MacBook 2.0 Ghz (Copy/Paste) <http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_mac/family/macbook [I apologize for not being able to insert them as hyperlinks] My worries, for being a student still, is obviously the running speed and the memory (both for songs and for documents) and well as battery life. While cost is a factor, I don't mind spending more for a better and more dependable product. Any opinions here on which one is best because I'm in dire need of help. Thanks everyone.
