I've always wanted to get myself one of those black MacBook since it came out, just because it's cool and hey, it's Mac - it's THE technology for technology retards like me. The PowerBook G4 I have right now never bothered me with anti-virus updates, and they have automatic update installation system. That's great, it's hassle-free.
Then MacBook came along, with the whole Core Duo and Intel Chip (I have no idea what they are, but I do know that they use Windows) and that means that I will be able to play a lot of games with that (finally!), and sell the currect Dell PC I have that is used solely for the purpose of gaming. They also have the magnetic power outlet, something that's very innovative. I've always tripped myself because of those cords that are lying around in the house (very common, especially when we have 4 laptops plugged to the same outlet), and I certainly do not want my computer to come crashing on me when, and if, I accidentally were to trip on it.
Though I haven't figured out what are the differences between MacBook and MacBook Pro except that the MacBook Pro doesn't come in the 13-inch size, I really want to find someone who knows about this. Oh, don't forget the student discount that you get when you're buying it, and especially if you get it in the Union (do they sell it there?), get yourself the student bundle discount; it's worth it. I remembered getting my 12-inch PowerBook G4 with 3 in 1 HP laser printer and 20 gb iPOD for about $1600 or less (of course with all the rebates and such).
One concern about MacBook though, what if it starts getting messy and I start getting all the virus alert system, just like my Dell PC? I also have heard cases where the keys on the keyboard fall off (!!?!?!?!?) and being an Apple customer, you have to be ready to spend a lot on these kinds of problems. They want your money all the time, other than the fact that the services that they provide are not all that great, or so I've heard.
