Hello to all! I'm new at this board. It is a pleasure to meet all of you. I am a college student and I recently fell in love with my friend's black MacBook. I will purchase my first mac (the same model) within the next few weeks, along with an iPod. Unlike most of you, I am in no way an expert on computers. However, I hope to be in time. My problem: I am debating on whether to wait for the next version of the MacBook (with Merom). I only use my computer to type papers, surf the internet, watch movies, and listen to/download/upload music. Will waiting for the new MacBook be a waste of MY time? Will I benefit from the new Intel chip? MANY thanks!
