Hi, I've been waiting for the new notebooks for months (currently typing on a 15" Powerbook G4). I was all up for getting the 2.53 MBP... until today. For some reason I've got the sudden urge to consider the MacBook. I'm not a "professional" but am a heavy computer user who demands a lot from his computer. I want a machine which operates fast and won't lag. Lifespan is important too- I want something I won't have to replace for the next 3 years (at least). I'm a student and don't travel that much, but it's nice to know that it's easy to move about. I'm asking if any of you had the same dilemma or have a good solution for me? I've been hearing a lot about poor screen quality, from the Pro forums, on the MacBooks. The screen size on my PowerBook is one of the main things keeping me with the larger machines. I like the space. Is the resolution too low on the current MacBooks? In sum: Is the screen quality that bad on the MacBooks? Is the resolution too low on the 13" screens? Are the machines as fast as their Pro brothers? Further, will the MacBooks benefit as much as the Pro machines will from Snow Leopard? Any advice from people in similar positions, or those who have moved from MBP (or PB) to MB? Cheers all, any advice is welcome. p.s. I'd probably be putting in a 500GB 5400RPM Samsung M6 and definitely be putting in the 4GB RAM.
