So, my Dell laptop has seen its last sunrise and I'm in the market for a new computer. Maybe it's the PC and Mac commercials; maybe it's the look of an apple store; or maybe it's because I love my Ipod and want an Iphone. But, I'm actually considering getting a Mac for the first time. But, I have several questions. I'm a little apprehensive making the switch because I fear I'll be learning a whole new language. If I get a Mac, I want to try as native as possible without using Windows. First, is $1,649 a good deal for a Macbook Pro with the following specs: Product Features 2.5 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 6 MB on-chip shared L2 cache, Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard 2 GB RAM (two SO-DIMM) 677 MHz DDR2 SD-RAM (PC2-5300), 250 GB 5400 rpm Serial ATA hard drive, slot load 8x Super Drive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) One FireWire 400, one FireWire 800, two USB 2.0 ports, and ExpressCard/34 slot Built-in 10/100/1000BASE-T (Gigabit); built-in 54 Mbps AirPort Extreme (802.11n); built-in Bluetooth 2.0+EDR 15.4-inch (diagonal), 1440 by 900 resolution, matte TFT LED widescreen display with NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT with 512 MB of GDDR3 SDRAM and dual-link DVI Processor, Memory, and Motherboard Hardware Platform: Mac Processor: 2.5 GHz Intel Core Duo System Bus Speed: 800 Number of Processors: 1 RAM: 2000 MB RAM Type: DDR2 SDRAM Hard Drive Size: 250 GB Manufacturer: Portable Type: Serial ATA Graphics and Display Graphics RAM: 512 MB LCD Native Resolution: 15.4 Ports and Connectivity Modem: None Cases and Expandability Size (LWH): 9.6 inches, 14.1 inches, 1 inches Weight: 5.4 pounds Power Rated Charge (normal use): 5 hours Wireless Wireless Type: 802.11A 2. Will the computer above connect with my existing wireless G router? 3. Can I stream movies, shows, and music to my Xbox 360? If so, how and how much will that cost? Is it effective? 4. What's a good Bittorrent client for Mac? Does utorrent work for mac? 5. Can you find Mac applications via bittorrent? 6. Will movies, shows, and music obtained via bittorrent work natively with Mac? In other words, can I watch all the shows and movies I currently have on an external hard drive on my new Mac? 7. I'm thinking of getting a 1tb external hard drive? Will just about any hard drive work with the mac or do I have to spend more money for a Mac-specific hard drive? 8. Can I add memory to a MacbookPro? Is it difficult? How much more memory can I add? 9. I have a bunch of favorite websites I transfered to my external hard drive. Is there some way to transfer those websites to a mac without using windows? 10. How is the native web program for mac? Would it be better to go to Firefox? Can you use firefox on a Mac? 11. What is the installed word program for a MacbookPro? Would I be better getting Ioffice or Microsoft Office for Mac? How does Ioffice compare with Microsoft Office? 12. Can I see Pdf files on a Mac? I'm sure I can, but I'm getting paranoid. 13. Can I install a good downloaded version of Windows XP on a Mac? 14. Do I need an Apple router to get wireless internet? Or will it work with my existing wireless router? I'm now reading on these boards that new Macs are being released today. What's the difference between the new ones and the one listed above? Is it really worth the price difference? What about the difference between an Imac and a Macbook pro? I really, really love the huge screen and the whole compact build. But, is it easy to add memory to an Imac? What about connecting peripherals?
