I say go for it, just buy the MacBook. I'm sure others echo my words, the MacBook is a great machine and is more than enough for the average user... Unless your a Motion Graphics Artist or a Gamer....

I just bought one, so I'm fairly comfortable that there isn't going to be an update. But if there was it wouldn't be the end of the world, you still would have an awesome computer, and it'll be updated eventually while you own it -- this one or the next.

phew! well thats okay then :D
i need to run windows on the macbook, what is the best option, parallelz or bootcamp. consider that i am not going to be gaming etc, i jsut need to run windows programmes such as Access. any ideas? :eek:
Parallels is probably a better option, since to run windows applications you don't have to reboot into Windows like you do if you use BootCamp.

what about they have a 60 day beta and a discounted buy price. its cheaper than either parallels or boot camp, I'v downloaded it but haven't got a chance to use it.

It's good - I use MS office and the performance is dire. I have used crossover on Linux and as long as you didn't try anything to odd all the win apps did work.:)

I loaded office xp as a trial and the install was clean - everything works, takes about the same amount of time to start as Excel normally does , but was much more responsive once it was working.

I will say that it is really a windows app, and boy does it look sad on a Mac!

Hope that helps:D
