Hello everyone, please bother reading, i need your opinions and answers on this one. I am 18 now and at the end of this year i will start to college(university actually) I will probably leave the house for university and i need a notebook. i am a pc user since windows 95, i used to play games etc... when i was a child so i am really used to Windows. On the other hand i know how Apple's product's are awesome, i have used ipod touch for a year, classic ipod for 2-3 years and now iPhone 3g for 15 months. I am an Apple enthusiast. i want to buy an Apple notebook because they look awesome, i haven't used it but they say it is awesome on action too and we all know the features and why we should prefer a mac over pc, so i am not going to tell more about "why" i am getting a mac. before continuing on with questions i am going to write my current system specs so you can answer my questions knowing my situation; -Intel Core2Duo E6850 3.00Ghz processor -Nivdia geforece 880gts 320 mb -2 GB DDR-2 RAM -2 hard drives one 164 and one 64 GB(that's what windows is telling me) -ASUS p5k-se motherboard and one DVD-RW -Windows Vista home premium 32-bit So here comes question number one; - Which Macbook or macbook pro should i get? my current system is written on top, i need at least the performance i am getting on my current desktop(i am pleased with current performance of my desktop, but it the new one shouldn't be less than this), i will mostly be watching movies, listening to music, browsing the web and maybe play some games if i feel like it. I will definitely be boot-camping with Windows XP because i love aviation and i need to install flight simulator to my computer with all the fancy add-ons. besides that both of my hard drives are almost full, so i need space. My current desktop pc has a 17 inch SAMSUNG LCD monitor. I want to get a Macbook because of budget problems but 13.3 inches are small. macbook pro 15 or 17 inch is awesome but again too expensive. i have never looked at a mac or a macbook pro judging which one suits for me so i don't know if i can get used to 13.3 inch or maybe Apple's 13.3 inch screen can make me happy. and here comes a problem. Thing is i am not a resident of the USA, i live in Turkey. Apple seems to have Turkey on the web page and they are selling iphone's officially by carriers but on the computer side they are only giving it to a distributor. That distributer really sucks. They can't give care or warranty like Apple do(they say they do), they sell Macs extremely expensive. for example Macbook Pro is 1700$ on Apple Us, but Bilkom(name of the distributor) sells the same item in Turkey for 4670 Turkish liras (3000 $ approximately) with less support. That is a huge problem, i am thinking of getting one on ebay or telling some friend or a relative going to usa for some reason to bring one. if i get one from us it will have no support at all? and i dont know if i can use it here fully functional. i am confused about this issue, please help with any solution or ideas because i want this to be cheap as possible but best as possible, i mean latest model because this will probably be the mac i use for the next 4-5 years. question number two: i have never used a laptop before, i always used desktops and pc combination, now all will change from pc+desktop to mac+laptop, can i keep pace with it? would it be a problem, i mean using as efficiently. this is a long post as you can see, i need your opinions because i am deeply on confusion with these issues. i think i covered everything on my head but i still do feel like i had some more question. i hope you read this and answer me. thanks to every and each one of you for your ideas, answers or opinion. Thank you and sincerely; Emir ps: i am planning to get one on summer of '10, when the high school is over. there may be updates too.
