Like I've stated I hate such threads but I want to make sure I make the right choice before I order. This will be my first Mac. I will be using my mac as my primary computer with bootcamp (as soon as I find a Win XP Pro disk) although I intend to use Windows soley for games and certain files (ie. .avi files of entourage). My main use of the computer will be for web browsing, instant messaging, listening to music and DVD viewing (my new hobby). Originally I wanted to get a PowerBook and was disapointed when I found out the MacBook does'nt have a PC Card Slot (not sure if its the right name, where you place network cards) I wanted to get a Verizon EV-DO card since I don't like wifi (too slow for my taste) but I don't have the money for the service now. Later on I intend to buy Eye-TV 250 and possibly hook-up my PS2 to it. Sorry if the thread is a long read, but I appreciate the help from this site, also I think I should add, If I get a MB i would get 1GB Ram/100GB HD/ Apple Care but if I get a MBP I would end up getting a base model with nothing else.
