    Hi guys,

    With the price cut of the new black macbook (NZ from $2800 to NZ$2350), I can now afford to get one!!!! yay..clap, clap...and all that jazz.

    Now for my question. Will the newly revised macbook be able to handle everything that leopard could through at it in the future? I don't particularly want to shell out a great deal of cash (im only a uni student) only to find out that, if i saved a little bit longer, and drank a little bit less, I could buy a Macbook pro (granted I dont need all the bells and whistles) and let leopard do its thing!! :)

    Thanks for the help
    -J

    Probably

    This was very likely the reason for the update, it seems like it would be able to handle it easily.

    Leopard will be flawless on a MacBook.

    Anything Intel will shine with Leopard. Same for PPC.

    Shell out just enough cash to max out the RAM to 2GB (as I did, this morning), and the computer will be fine for any future flavor of OS X (dunno about OS XI, though...). Apple prices its RAM *almost* competitively (it was less than US$15 more than elsewhere), so it's not really worth the hassle to try to get a better deal from a third-party vendor.

    If you can, avoid upgrading the hard drive. In the future, you can get a cheaper/faster one from a third-party vendor for a much better deal. Changing hard drives in the macbook is a snap! Three screws! Five minutes! It's amazing. The same is not true for the macbook pro; it's more like forty screws and half an hour at least.
