I have read through several pages of threads, but I'm still somewhat confused...so I apologize if your first thought when opening this thread is "great, another person who didn't read first..." I have used nothing but PCs...the only experience I have with a Mac are the few times I've went in the Apple store and played around on the systems for a couple minutes. I'm considering a MacBook.....can't really afford the MacBook Pro. Some of the posts make the MacBook sound completely inferior in comparison to the Pro. I'm asking for a realistic response that is not based on a complete Apple-worshipping, power-user viewpoint. I will primarily be using the system for web surfing/instant messaging/email/MS office. I don't play games, so I'm hoping that the integrated video thing will not be an issue to me because of that. However, I do use my desktop PC to edit large audio files (3-4 hours long). Is the MacBook capable of efficently handling large audio files without getting completely bogged down? Don't know if the MacBook will meet my needs, or if I should stick with a PC-based laptop....any suggestions?
