    I assume you're a college student, so I'll respond as such.

    I've found my macbook to be incredibly usefull for classes, but don't take for granted the usefulness of a pc on campus. Many classes require you to be able to have access to Excel, Powerpoint and Access for a variety of assignments. Just keep in mind you might need to use somebody else's pc or find the computing commons to get assignments done if this is your primary computer.

    If you know all this and I just sound like a douche, then sorry :p

    You can always use parallel or boot camp, or use Office for Mac for everything other than Access.
    Btw, to the OP, congrats!! i got mine for 2 months now, its a great machine! my old xp laptop seems ancient by comparison, so slow and annoying with its constant anti-virus updates :mad:.

    I just bought the same MB and it is a GREAT upgrade from my old 12" PB.

    I upgraded the HD and RAM and it flies :cool:

    I did much the same research you did and figured for the money this is a great machine. I've wanted a Mac for years but my wife was reluctant. After a shopping nightmare for a windows laptop ( due to people at the store telling her Apple did not have any promotions for the machines), she phoned me from Toronto asking what I would buy. She popped into the Apple Store there and an hour later was converted. I've used Mac before so it is like a homecoming for me.
