My girlfriend gifted me a macbook like one month ago . I am really into computers (mostly windows and Linux so far ) but this was my first introduction to Mac world . I was amazed by the built quality and sheer cutting edge design of Mac OS X snow leopard . Having a Linux background I have more deep insight into OS than a common Mac user . As it comes from Unix family its stable , secure and fast . But honestly it can't do anything which can not be done using a PC with Win 7 . And it is way more expensive . But when I hold it I feel elite . When I use it in train many people can't help asking "apple .....oh cool " . Now I wonder how many people use it for super sexy design and elite look other than usage..?????
