Hey everyone, Sadly, I parted with my dear G4 12' PB for in order to get some cash and save up for a new MacBook with an Intel chip back in the Summer of '06 (I owned it for a year). I have been patiently waiting for the Intel product line on Macs to work out all the hiccups with hopes of buying one in the near future. I have my budget and am looking to make my purchase post-MWSF. However, I am undecided which route to choose. I truly miss my PB and long for one of the new Macs. My main use for a computer is email, word, excel, web-browsing, and music. Games, video/photo editing, DVD burning are all out of the question. Ideally, the MB is the right choice for me. However, visiting an Apple store and testing out the MBs I noticed that MS Office runs extremely slow. Why is this so. Does anyone else experience problems? The model I tested had about a 1GB of Ram. Do you think a 2GB upgrade will improve performance for MS Office? Also, would you suggest taking the lower end MB with 2MB L2 Cache, or the 4MB L2 cache? I really dont know the difference, so if anyone can enlighten me I would be greatly appreciated. I already own a Dell PC, and just hope to use the Mac for basic productivity and portability. I also get the student discount. What would you DO!?
