I have a few questions. I currently have a e-machines desktop with viral problems my software didn't catch and breached security that will cost $300+ to remedy. This is my 2nd e-machine in 3 years and 4th pc in the last 10. I want something that will last plain and simple. I've never had a laptop but I am pretty sure I will be purchasing a entry level 13" Pro very soon as a replacement for my desktop. Nothing I do has ever been graphically taxing on a pc simply because I've never had something good enough to do things like that on. Home movies, pics, etc. I would love to considering how many I have that are just sitting on tapes and discs and I would love to use applications like the geneology one I've seen for macs. Plus for this amount of money you can bet I will learn how to use everything a Pro can do and get my moneys worth. But I have a few questions before I take the plunge for sure. What is the average lifespan of a Pro? I know there are always lemons out there and I don't plan on being stupid with it, so under the best possible circumstances how long can it last. I would not be interested in upgrading and such every time there is a refresh or going out there 3 years down the line and buying a replacement just because it's the latest and greatest. I use my stuff till it's limping into the grave. Are there really overheating/fan problems with these new units? Is this unit good to use as a desktop replacement? Is it tough getting use to having no mouse? I don't game on pcs, again because mine are always pos, but just for poops and grins. If say I wanted to run that World of Warcraft game on this, is the gpu good enough for it? I've heard lots of noise about the HD 3000. Lastly and this is semi related. Is there a product that can take hi8 videos being played from a camcorder with only A/V or svideo outputs and send the to be recorded on a Pro through the usb/firewire port? An adapter of some kind. Sorry for all the questions and thanks in advance.
