Im new here and thinking of buying a Macbook, cant stand the thought of Vista.
Would a Macbook be ok for me: I just use the internet (Firefox at the moment)
I use ITunes, write a few letters with open office.
I do a lot photography with digital cam
Also can I ask if Macbooks have a Standby mode as I do like the fast start if just wanting to check something fast online.
Thanks for any answers, sorry to be a bore

Yes, it'll be fine. If you want to use Photoshop then you might want to get 2gb RAM as it currently runs under Rosetta (the background program that gets invoked when running non-intel/universal apps). iPhoto is great anyway.
Macs have a Sleep mode, which many consider preferable to turning the machines off completely. Many users don't shut their Macs down for months at a time.
Hope this helps.www.martinsketchley.co.uk

Its worth mentioning that even if you do turn off your Macbook, it only takes about 25 seconds to start anyway. Much, much faster at boot and close than any PC I have ever used.
