Well I want to get a macbook pro 15inch 2.66ghz version. It will be my 1st apple machine (altho I have used macs allot through my education) To obtain this macbook pro one of the conditions is to give my dad my quad core machine and in turn my parents will be paying for most of the macbook pro. (His pc broke down and he was needing to get a new one either way) Im a video game design Uni student so I do allot of modelling and I do play a few games. The pc specs of which il be handing over are Q6600 2.4ghz 4gb 800mhz ram 500gb HDD 8600 GTS 512mb P5N-E SLI motherboard I just think its time to move onto a mac, I love leopard and after seeing what snow leopard will bring to the table I think its gonna be awesome. I needed a portable machine for my travels to uni each day (1 hour 30 min to get there each day on bus) The 7 hours battery life is perfect for me and its a pretty powerful machine to be able to lug around with me. Obviously Since I model in max I will be using bootcamp for windows and for gaming, although I dont play many heavy games like crysis etc even though I have seen some videos proving there is playability in games like crysis. From you users of the pro yourself and from long time mac users and even convertees from the windows to osx do you guys think this is a good idea for me? Cheers for your time!
