Hi... firstly I'm new to this site, I have done some research but I could still do with some advice from you, hence the post... I'm contemplating buying a Macbook (Alu Base Model), but need a steer as to whether it is the right decision. I have always had Windows based PCs/Laptops, my most recent being a Dell XPS Laptop (basically a desktop replacement) which has a 2Ghz Core 2 Duo and an Nvidia 7950GTX which I will continue to use for gaming... Essentially I'm looking at a Mac for a change in Operating System - I'm bored of Windows - and the fact that every now and again I want a laptop I can carry around the house or out and about with ease. I will be using it for: 1. Media (music & video predominantly, maybe some editing) 2. Internet (browsing & downloads) 3. 'Light' gaming e.g. Football Manager 2009 / Live Should I look to the base Aluminium model or higher? I was also wondering how easy downloading films / torrents / rapidshare links are compared to windows PCs? Also when is the next major revamp on the Macbook expected? Many thanks for your replies.
