After longing for a Mac for the last four years I'm about to take the plunge. My PC laptop is dying and I will soon need to replace it. After looking at the prices and specs and coming from the PC world I now realize I'lll have to spend more money to get a MacBook or MBP. But I'm not sure what to get. The laptop will be used mostly for email, websurfing, YouTube and games like Spore for my kid. I would like it to be useful for five years. For this "easy use" I think a MacBook will suffice. But the clincher is that I will have to use it very, very occassionally in Windows 7 mode. I have software that is Windows specific and not available for Macs (accounting software). I'm not sure if the MacBook will be able to boot up OK in the Windows mode with the base model...I would probably add the 2 gigs of RAM. The other issue is the screen size. My old laptop was 15" and I would prefer the MPB 15.4" screen to the MB 13.3" screen. I think it would be more enjoyable for surfing and for my son to play his games on. I'm stuck at the price though. I can't afford to buy the current model MBP so am looking at last years models (it will be a secondary computer). I think I can get one for about $200-300 more than a current year MB. Or maybe I should ditch the whole idea and stick with a PC! Any ideas or thoughts would be really appreciated.
