I want to switch to an Apple laptop, and after a few days looking around the internet and website, i haven't been able to find answers to many of my questions. The 2 laptops i am looking at are the 2.0ghz macbook (white) and 2.0ghz macbook pro. I am hoping for some good feedback, so if you can contribute, please do so... something that concerns me is the graphics card on the macbook. i am not a big fan of shared memory. Disregarding games, is the integrated card all that bad? I am planning on installing 2gb of game. I spend the better part of my day as a developer, mostly programming with java and oracle. I think it would be crucial that the laptop can be able to compile/run java applications relatively quick. The laptop must also be able to run some version of an Oracle database. Any one have any luck with this, i don't expect java to be too much of a problem, i am more or less concerned with Oracle. Anyone have an success running Oracle? What about programming in general, has anyone encountered any limitations? I am hoping to use the laptop to learn about new languages and technologies, so i wouldn't want to be hindered there. I won't be gaming too much on the laptop, but may play here and there. Can i expect the macbook to be able to handle games like GTA? I imagine the mbp will have no issues doing anything i need it to, but $700 is a lot of money to spend on overkill if the macbook can do what i need it to. So please, if you have any knowledge and advice you can give me, please do so. Thanks to everyone in advance!
