Hi all, I am taking the leap from windows to mac, and I am literally a novice when it comes to anything mac. I am going to buy the base model macbook, and i was just wondering how much ram do i need to run snow leopard well? I am not a gamer, and will be using the mac for mostly internet use, some downloading(but going onto external hd), and running the average amount of applications. So 2gb or 4gb? Also, is it practical to run windows on a mac, using bootcamp? I know it uses a partition, but does having two OS on the computer, ie how will this affect performance? Would I just be better off with snow leopard? Any help is appreciated, as I am quite unsure what to do!
