I love my late 2008 Unibody Aluminum Macbook. It has a 2.4 Core 2 Duo Processor, 480GB SSD, and 8GB of RAM. The only thing I use it for is to web surf, run Microsoft Office, and sync photos from my iPhone. How much of an improvement is the new 12 rMB compared to mine? The battery on my macbook is completely dead and i've heard mixed reviews on new batteries for it. DVD's get stuck in the DVD drive. I don't currently have an iPad. For those of you that have the new macbook is 8GB enough? I keep my computers a long time. Would you recommend the new Macbook?
