My girlfriend's 6 year old Dell desktop died last night and she wants a new machine. She's a Grad student that only really needs to use Office and Web browsing, and she's not at all caring of technology. She'd probably write on paper forever if possible. I know that the Macbook will serve her needs fine, just wondering what the overall opinion of the laptop is versus the slightly more expensive 13" MBP. Quality is my overall concern I guess. With her student discount she can get the Macbook with AppleCare for $1,082. Anybody have any thoughts/advice?
