Specs: 2.1 Ghz 4GB Ram 120GB Combo drive 144MB graphics White 13" +$300 Applecare up in 1 month, eligibile for 3 yr vs iMac 20" 2.66 Ghz 2GB Ram 320GB Superdrive 256MB graphics Wired mouse & keyboard Applecare up in 6 months, eligible for 3 yr Now it seems obvious that the iMac is better in terms of performance and everything but I really don't know what to do. I'm currently in grade 11 and I don't need to portability of the MacBook. I'd like to be able to run Steam through Parallels while on OS X without fans going up or lagging a bit and I'd like to be able to play CS in a partition on Windows. I really like desktops (I have a PC desktop) because I use it less, which is a good thing, and I enjoy it more with speakers and such. Next year I'll be going to cegep (quebec only thing, pretty much pre-university) where I'll want a laptop. What I figure is that I buy one of those Dell 10" things and hackintosh it and write my notes on there. My dad thinks that I shouldn't trade because I'm going to want a laptop really badly when I'm in cegep, but the netbook seems like a good median, with great battery life and Windows 7 or OS X. Thoughts?
