Hey guys i picked up my macbook today. 2.0 ghz dual core. 1 gb ram. 80 gb HDD. Its so amazingly fast! I would say it is an incredible improvement over the G4 ibooks. If anyone is cosidering switching its worth it! Much faster and screen wont give you a headache. Good resolution and size. I love it!

Admittedly I have the standard 512 RAM. Why shold I have to fork out more money to make the thing run decently ? With 512 everything is slooow. Fed up seeing that beachball even when switching windows or using a menu item at the top of the screen. Give me back my iBook. Everything ran smartly , no hassles.

I have a 2.0 MacBook w/ 2 gigs of RAM and it is definitely much faster than my old 1.42 iBook. I haven't experimented too much with the games/Windows thing yet, but I installed Boot Camp w/ WinXP and have played Counterstrike (admittibly not the most graphic intensive game...) and it ran just as fast as my roommate's PC will run it. Overall, I love everything about my new MacBook and feel that it was definitely worth the upgrade.

huazhelei, search the boards here for "playing games on macbook". There have been numerous threads on this and from what I could tell of the reviews, that the Macbook alone plays games pretty good. There was a link in one of the threads of someone playing Counter-Strike Source very efficiently on his Macbook.
