As a student, I've been trying to find a well-built computer for under $1000. For me, the MacBook is a perfect fit.
Pros: -The touchpad is incredible for web browsing. I have been using PCs notebooks for years, and I have never liked touchpads, but this has proved to be an exception. I can easily do two-button clicking, scrolling with two fingers, and going back and forth through pages with three fingers. I find I no longer do I have to lug around a USB mouse (except if I want to some gaming). -The computer starts up in 20 seconds without having to wait for background processes to load up (unlike windows). -The build quality of the MacBook is unmatched for its price. The unibody does not creak at all when handling it. -Multi-tasking is surprisingly good for only 2GB RAM. The only hiccups I have had were at the first couple of seconds of playing movies on iTunes with a lot of other programs running.
As a student, I was pretty hesitant to get the MacBook, but after MONTHS of exhaustive research looking for the right laptop (I'm a networking student, and also I am working on my A+ PC Repair certification, so I know a thing or two about PC's and Windows), I decided that I needed a change in my life. I've had an IBM ThinkPad T60 last me four years through school, but after 4 re-install's of XP, I've had enough of the constant attacks of viruses, spyware, etc...and I decided to go with the MacBook.
Perfect for web browsing, e-mail, and document creation. Comes with great features right out of the box: iLife simply rocks; it comes with PhotoBooth, Garageband (where you can create your own music or learn to how play an instrument), Preview, and iMovie (it's basically an easier version of Windows Movie Maker) Time Machine for backing up documents and pictures, which is FAR SUPERIOR than using the Backup Feature in Windows. Wi-Fi is SO EASY to...
