This is the second time I have come to MacRumors for advice. Needless to say, the first time I took the advice and had two happy years of ibook usage. I return for another round. I am trying to decide whether to get a MacBook or Macbook Pro. - Money isn't a huge issue, but as I am a student, I do not want to spend cash un-necessarily. - It needs to be able to run Windows and run it well (and also preferably Linux) - It needs good battery life, portability and comfort. I can't stress this enough. If any one owns a 15" Macbook Pro please tell me if you can actually use it as a laptop (i.e. on your lap) and not feel like your stomach is being crushed or reproductive organs are being singed. Sorry for the imagery. - Preferably good (enough) for games and applications such as Photoshop 7 and some good number crunching applications. Thanks guys and gals!
