Hi All, I got a white macbook 2.4GHz Intel core duo (penryn), uprgraded RAM to 4GB, and have a 250GB HD. I'm a grad student and I use my computer mostly for word processing, but I also like to use flash but it causes my MB to get really hot and the image quality is fair. I also run parallels, which can cause the computer to get really hot. Despite upgrading the memory with my macbook, it seems to not like flash or memory intensive software. I chose to get the MB since I'm not an engineer, and I don't really need a video card, but now I'm kind of regretting my decision. I guess 500 dollars wasn't worth a video card to me at the time, but maybe now it is. Anybody else struggle with similar issues? Anybody really happy with getting a MB vs MBP? Thanks.
