    I would desperately appreciate some justifications for selling my iBook on EBay and buying a MacBook. I've wanted to for years and whilst my aging iBook is getting a bit slow I've never had any real need for a MacBook. Anyone who owns one, please tell me it is worth it! What I could come up with:

    - Faster Windows virtualization/dual boot
    - Better graphics for games (except for the whole GMA 950 thing most of my games will run better])
    - iPhone SDK!
    - Faster performance all around (for applications/HD video)
    - Can use apps like Office 2008/iDVD that don't run well on my current notebook
    - Faster wireless networking
    - Bigger screen

    There must be some other advantages to a MacBook, right?

    Thanks to anyone who reads/responds.

    I did exactly that 6 months ago and it is so much faster! No pinwheels
    anymore either. I figured, based on benchmarks, that it is about 600%
    faster.

    You're version of OS X (Tiger or Leopard) will run better, and be able to take advantage of the hardware. Same holds true for when Snow Leopard comes out.
