Are we the same person? I've been saying exactly these things to my friends who had their doubts. Now 4 of the 6 of them have bought the new MacBook. Loving it! Once you go Mac, you never go back.

It's definitely not time for the iMac to be updated. The current design has been around for just over a year, unless you're solely talking about internal alterations. Granted, the Mac Mini is always...

I was in the same boat. I was torn between the new MacBook pro and the MacBook - I went with the 2.4GHZ MacBook based on the fact that it's slightly more portable, lighter, and also has almost...

I have the 2.4GHZ model, and I can safely say that it's worth every penny. However, you just know the prices are going to come down slightly in a few months; if you can wait that is. I couldn't, and...

Can't wait to order my MB. On my way to the store tomorrow. Had a play on one today and am completely won over. Who cares about the slight price increase when they are THIS good.
