Hey everyone. My current situation looks as follows: I'll be off to college in October. I've never owned or even worked with a Mac in my life. I desperately want to buy a Macbook for college, but the main reason for me is that it's just so shiny and I'm a shallow, shallow person. Now, my question is: What questions do I need to ask myself prior to buying a Macbook (I wanna get one while staying in Los Angeles in September due to the Dollar/Euro exchange rate)? And, are there any particularities I need to keep in mind as I'd be a European using a US Macbook, like, do they sell them with western standard (German?!?) keyboards in the stores? Plus, what about my set-up-for-windows iPod? Is a Mac even recommendable if I do not have ANYTHING to do with graphics and design and am just your regular "Surf the web, download stuff, write college papers" kinda guy who's just fallen so very hard for the Macbook's looks? Advice will be greatly appreaciated!
