Okay so a little over dramatic title but although I love these forums (for helping out with any problems and discussing all mac things etc) they can also be bad for your mental health. What do I mean? Well they can drive you mad. Everyday there are a load of people who worry if they should upgrade their machine, re-upgrade their machine for the new model that came out 5 days later or wait until June when a new machine will come out. I know it has been said before but you all need to chill out a bit. I had an ibook for 2 years and loved it. I bought it just before macbooks came out and did I care? No, it was an excellent machine and served me very well - and I must point out I like to have new gadgets! I have just upgraded to a 2.4 blackbook and I love it even more. For converting DVDs it's a whizz and time machine is amazing (hopefully I will not have to use it too often!). SO what's my point? Well if I listened to some people in here I would never buy a mac and still be waiting for the 'next best one' to come along. Okay if you are waiting for a specific feature them maybe wait (I am waiting for a 3G iphone for example) but how much better can these macbooks get? I don't need a blueray drive, I have 250 gig which will last me for a couple of years, the new chip should also be good for at least as long, probably longer, battery life is over 4.5 hours of real use. Wake up, this is a great machine, so if you are debating if you should wait, don't. Life is too short. Right there is my 1 cents worth!!!
