    Well, despite getting royally and a bit unexpectedly screwed during tax season (owe 1000 dollars) I decide not to let it derail my aspirations to go mac this spring, and pulled the trigger on a macbook, despite my fears of the screen being too small....

    I couldn't possibly be happier. the screen really is not too small, and for my "heavy" work, I plan on powering a 23" lcd monitor, which Im buying nxt week.

    Just excited to finally do it, thought I'd post!

    Congrats on the MacBook! I had reservations moving from a 15.4" Compaq laptop and 17" iMac to the 13.3", but i'm happy to report its the perfect size screen. Small enough to travel with, but enough room to run my applications comfortably. But enough about me, hope you continue to be happy with your MacBook. :)

    Same here...I was running on a 15" MBP for work purposes only and used it as my home computer. Finally pulled the trigger on the new macbook black and put in 4gb ram. I was worried about the smaller screen but now totally prefer the smaller size for what I do at home. Great machine.
