I've never ever owned any type of Mac computer/laptop. My current laptop, and Acer of some kind, is slowly on its way out. I'm looking for an Macbook, or the MBP and wondered if you guys could give me a bit of help. I'm obviously looking for the cheapest solution, but have the money for the MPB if its more suitable. What I need from the Macbook is as follows; I'm in my final year at University so there'll be lots and lots of words needing to be written. This would mean I need a laptop that is able to handle quite a bit of button bashing over long periods of hours through a day. I'm browse the internet pretty much everyday, but its regular surfing, facebook, forums etc. I'm hardly a gamer, but I do enjoy playing a little bit of Management games, and I suppose I'd like the Sims 3 to work seeing as my GF has it working nicely on here older laptop than my current dying one and I cannot for the life of me get it to run on this! Could you guys, who know infinitely more about these than me, help me decide which I'd be better off with. Cheers.
