Hi, I'm a poor student who's eager to switch to Mac after years of Windows usage. My primary interest is the build quality of Apple Laptops and the amazing battery life! Anyway, I'm debating if the Macbook Pro really is necessary for me. I don't game and I'm a Touch Typist, so the Graphics Card and the backlit keyboard aren't that appealing. The only qualm I have is I'm a little worried about Polycarbonate vs. Aluminum. Is one more reliable than the other? Some of my friends think the Aluminum enclosure of the Macbook Pro is better. Comments?
