Note: I'm typing this from my iPhone using Opera, so I'll do my best but perfect spelling isn't guaranteed, especially since auto-correct is off in Opera. I'm currently going into my Junior year in Highschool, so obviously a laptop isn't exactly required for all my classes. But I'd like to get a reliable, multi-use laptop that could last me mostly through college when it comes up. Just one less thing to worry about when this whole thing comes up. Not to mention that I want to develop for the iDevices and I'm currently land-locked with a desktop, so a Macbook of some kind seems like the best choice. With this in mind, I'm looking to see what the best Macbook to get would be. I have a job, but on average I make $50-150 a week, so I don't plan on getting this thing in the near future. But I don't plan on waiting half a year for the thing either. I have 2 years of school left, I'd like to make the most of it. Screen size is a bit of an issue, I like to multitask, but with Exposé I don't think that would be much of a problem. I'd like to play a couple of 3D games, even playing on the lowest settings would be fine. But that would just be for mobile entertainment, it's not that important. Just convinient. I was looking at the Macbook, but the limited 5400RPM hard drives seemed like they would be a major bottleneck during booting. The price was right though, and I was going to go with 4GB if I ever did go with it. The 13" Macbook Pros looked like they were about the same as the regular Macbook, but I can't really be sure since I'm currently limited to my phone and for some reason Apple never made a mobile version of their own site, causing extremely difficuly navigation of their site, and just comparing the two could take about an hour. The 15" Macbook pro (lowest-end model) looked perfect, but at $1900 with a student discount it was a bit pricey, possibly worth waiting for though, if necessary. (Price is probably wrong, but I do know that it'll take me a bit to get to whatever its price is.) So what do you guys think? I saw someone playing Portal on what looked like a regular Macbook, so if that's the kind of power those things have then the Macbook is my kind of laptop. Like I said, I don't need extreme performance.
