I bought this computer mainly as a word processor. As a student, this is my main focus. I like to surf the net, but it is secondary. I even picked the 12' powerbook over the 14'1 just because of the keyboard. I really have to have everything 'perfect' to write. So here I am today, using MS word and I find this annoying lag time. If I make a mistake, I go back and all of the sudden I get this stupid spinning CD that I guess means I have to wait. I can't write like this, is this normal? How do you guys deal with this? For all its fault, my PC never had a lag time at all.
