Hi As you know im keen on Apple products so much im looking to leave the PC as ive had enough of the viruses and blue screen im just fed up of it all! lol Windows undoubtedely sucks but obviously we aint here to slag off other manufacturers. Im currently living in the UK, and i have decided to take the plunge for the Mac few questions i had is im due to be starting university in October id like to go for a notebook as i require portability. Is it worth while for me to wait when i do start uni as i dont really need at the moment, people on this forum winge that shall i wait as i have my comp. Macbook vs Macbook Pro debate. Im in 2 minds which one to go for, i will be using to type, email. music, watch films, photoshop (im in the process of learning as a hobby) and maybe some small video editing. May play the odd ocassional game here and there. Obviously the pro has its advantages. Which would be better for me? im looking for a future proof system ideally looking to keep the system for another 6-7 years e.g. ive had my Dell for around 7 years its serving me well at the moment but its a bit tad too old . Any advantages with the new chipsets or could it be better to go refurb is multi touch a big issue. Also the graphics there is a big debate on board or Nvidia of course we know the 8600GT is a fantastic card. Is there much between the 256mb and 512mb cards is it likely in the future NVIDIA will bring out new cards of course they are saying the Montevina update is imminent is it likely that new cards will be supported with that. Will the Macbooks see new case designs possibly? Is it justified with the extra £300 price tag just out of interest also. Also in the terms of future proof, can the Macbook Pros handle the hardcore games ? is it HD ready out of interest. Blue ray isnt a issue because i rather get a PS3. I assume 4gb of RAM is ideal to use. Im a student i get discount as we know is the Apple care which is discounted the same as the full price one? Apologies for the long thread im just lost thats all, its all new to me but any advice would be appreciated. It's difficult encouraging parents because £1500+ is a hell of a lot of money for that equipment yet Apple do the best on the market so its standard practice i wouldnt really blame them. Any advice would be appreciated, sorry its more Macbook Pro orientated but still would like differences between 2. Thanking you .
