It'll be my first, and words cannot express how excited I'll be to have it. (I've spent way too much time on the apple online store and customized the mid-ranged MB just the way I want.) Fortunately, I know you're sick of hearing people ask when the MB update will come out, so I've no questions about that. it. But I have some questions. Since I'm going to go to college in the fall for marine bio, I'll need some sort of word processing tool and a thing for presentations. I see that apple offers iWork with an education discount for only 71 dollars. Is this a good deal? I've grown up using Microsoft apps for school work, so would I be better off getting a version of that for mac? And, for a question nowhere near the importance of the first, can the new MB be expected to handle the game Spore, or does the MBs relatively low graphics capabilities make it pointless to try? (I'm not interested in buying a pro, I've no need for one and I've no money for one. So this will not affect my purchase any.) Thanks for all your help!
