First off, I DO NOT want this thread to become a battle between macs and pcs. What I would like is for people to point out the problems with macs from personal experience. As of right now I am planning on buying a new MacBook in 2012 when the design overhaul takes place. I am a student and thus the laptop would be used for typical undergrad work (but I hope it will last me through some graduate work as well). I have heard mixed things about macs (such as overall computer running hot, pinwheel showing up a lot, and people saying OS X Lion is a lot like Vista's initial release [buggy]) and am becoming a little skeptical about spending $1000+ on a machine if it would end up becoming a high-maintenance investment. So tell me, what issues have you had with Apple's laptops? P.S. Feel free to tell me good things about the laptops as well. Trying a compare and contrast thread here.
