Hi everybody,
I am new to this forum and this is my first post.

I have been with Windows and PC for a long time and each time when had a chance to change my laptop would look ath the Macs and again go back tp PC.

Maybe could not find a reason to pay nearly double price, or maybe scared to start a new OS.

Lately I see a lot of people getting into the new 2008 alu models. I am in the market after one.

I like the looks and the size of the Macbook 13,3 inches. Not sure if the screen would be to small at the long run.


Would like opinions if you are really happy or would have been better to check a higher model or bigger screen?

I would use it for mail,web,word, excel and photography (amateur use)

Thanks,

Gul

I love mine.

I used to go back and forth with the ole screen too small dilemma. I just decided to buy the MacBook, and see how I like it in day to day use. I ended up keeping it and I love it still.

The fonts are not hard to read, the screen seems to be just right. I don't think I strain at all to use this notebook.

Buy it, check it out for a week or so... and if its not for you, you can exchange/upgrade it for the Pro.

I have a Mac Book that I purchased in the beginning of my Freshman year (last year) and I absolutely love it. I have had no problems with it, it is fast and very easy to use. I love the availability of free programs to tinker with and I find myself having more fun with it every time I use it. When I stared using it, after switching from windows, I though maybe I had made a mistake. About a week later, after I figured out some tips and tricks I loved it. I enjoy the smaller size for taking it back and forth to class. For the price you pay, you get alot. I have loved the i Life programs such as iMovie, and have never regretted buying the Mac Book.
Just my thoughts

Love my AluMacBook. Wouldnt trade it for anything else right now. I think a 13 inch screen is very adequate. I wouldnt mind a smaller one but this one will do. I would reccommend a MacBook to anybody. Give it a shot... Whats there to lose? If you dont like it, just put Windows on it.

I was in the exact same boat and I bought the 13.3 inch alumimac and really like it. I dont think it is too small for me and my eyes it is a great szie. My biggest concern was the size of the screen but it has worked fine and I love the small form factor.

I love my Aluminum MacBook. I started with a Black MacBook, then bought a 1st gen Air, and finally got rid of them both and bought the 2.4 Unibody.

Love it, and no regrets at all.

Other than showing up with two dents in the bottom logic board cover (which Apple had me ship back for a replacement), I'm very happy with it.

I just switched to mac too and love it. I have vmware for windows because of my ppc cell phone, but only use it when I need to hack my phone. the new computer runs great and I had it upgraded to 4gbs of ram and 500gb hard drive. I even got to use my old hard drive in my ps3 (sweet). I am learning all of the shortcuts and sidebar is my new best friend. enjoy your new macbook.
