Well I've been thinking of getting a Macbook. This is for a few reasons: 1. I love Mac OSX (and I'll wait until Leopard comes out before I finally decide) 2. They have great battery life. (up to 6 hours, guys on my course get over 5 with it which is pretty damn good I think) 3. They look sh*t hot 4. I want one (no reason needed hehe) Well I've been thinking of going with the following configuration: White 2GHz Core 2 Duo 1GB RAM 80GB HDD SuperDrive With my educational discount I'll get it for £755.53 (it'd usually be £879.00) It's got less RAM and HDD space than my current laptop, but then again, I've never used more than 700MB (don't mention Vista, ever...) and I've not got 80GB of stuff on my laptop, I have most of my data stored on an external HDD. My mum has offered to buy my current laptop off me (full specs in 'My Computer' section if you want to see) and I'm seriously considering it. The thing is, I love my current laptop, it's got nothing wrong with it (few minor cosmetic marks) but it runs great. The reason I don't like it is that the battery doesn't last more than 2 hours and I hate carrying a charger around Uni with me... So I'm pretty damn sure I'll get one, battery life being the main reason, also the Macbook's are so much smaller than my laptop!!
