I'm considering getting a macbook. I've always been a PC person. Always liked the idea of a mac, but never really thought they were for me (esp considering the price). I'm a freshman in college, and my parents got me a new Dell Inpsiron 1520 for gradution and I've been using it all school year. Its 2.0 GHz, with 2GB RAM, 120 GB hard drive, and vista home premium. Works well, except for a few hiccups w/vista early in the year. And its not even a year old. A friend of mine has a macbook that I love, and when he told me the price he paid for it, and it was almost half of what we paid for mine, I began to realize that we probably made the wrong decision. So I am planning on buying a new black Macbook, with nothing added except the apple care plan. Then I'm planning on getting a 4GB upgrade from ebay or some other third party source, and putting it in myself (it seems easy enough to do). I'm hoping that this will be an investment that will last me for years to come. I'm hoping that it will last a lot longer than what this Dell will. I know that as far as the power and speed of it goes, the mac will suit my needs for quite a while (I don't do anything fancy at all). I am a little worried about the durability of it. I dont want to dish out the cash for it, only to have it break on me. That's the only thing that is keeping me from making the decision to buy one. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, as I'm almost completly new to the apple world, save some research over the past week or two. Thanks.
