I'm new here. This is a pretty cool forum you all have. It's nice to see something like this. Anyway, I've been a windows user and haven't ever used a Mac. I've been wanting to pick one up for a while, but never really have gotten around to it because I'm always buying guitars and guitar amplifiers. I've been looking at several laptops Apple offers. Some folks at Harmony-Central told me I would be all right with the Macbook and others have told me I should just go all out and get a Macbook Pro. I would like to start fooling around with recording music. The MBP has the upgrade to the 7200 RPM 200 GB HD. I've read in several places that the faster hard drive would be beneficial for what I would be doing with it. The regular Macbook would be easier on the wallet, but I'm not too worried about that. Also, I've been worried about switching from Windows to Apple. I know the way you go about doing things on a Mac is a little bit different. Other than that, they look pretty cool and I'm tired of having to buy a million different programs for maintenance. Chime in and tell me what you guys think. You're the experts!
