I'm torn. Recently, I've gotten my first Mac - an iMac, in fact. It's fantastic, but I still find myself using my two-year-old piece of **** Dell XPS laptop more, purely because of convenience. I just turned 15, so I figured a couple of months of minimum wage would get me enough money to purchase a 2.2 GHz MacBook. (opinions on this, too! ) The MacBook Pro is a bit too expensive, and I don't need that much space. Because I take a laptop to debate tournaments, I need something to carry around, and since the lowest model has the same specs as the 2.2 GHz MacBook (besides memory, but I don't need that), I've decided on the MacBook. The MacBook Air is also ruled out. Too expensive, and it has less power than it's $700 cheaper counter-part! Any comments on the MacBook? How's the battery life, is it as fast as a 20" iMac? My Dell laptop is plan horrible. As of now, it's missing five keys, the mouse pad goes crazy when you touch it, and the left-click button is pressed in, so you're not actually pressing anything down... One more thing. My Dell is barely considered a "light-laptop" weighing just under 6 pounds. How heavy is the MacBook? Is it difficult to lug around?
