I have been a really long PC user, Its the only thing i've ever used. I have always wanted a MAC. My now desktop is over 8 yrs old and is on its way out the door. I would like to purchase the base model MBP(late2008) as my desktop replacement. Does anyone use their MBP as their main computer? Would is be sufficient for that [purpose? I mainly play a few games, download music and make cd's, surf the net, watch movies, etc.....ALL my friends are MAC haters and tell me to just get a windows pc/laptop instead saying its cheaper and will have better specs. I honestly hate windows. It always crashes, freezes, etc.....Any replies would be great. What would the pros/cons be of buying a MBP as a desktop replacement?
