I'm a recent switcher and I just had to post how great the Macbook is (I appreciate you guys know it already). Mine's the 2Ghz white variant.

I finally got fed up with the numerous Blue Screen Of Deaths that kept appearing when video editing with XP and wasting evenings, after work, removing viruses from friends PCs.

But this machine.....cool. Bought a wireless router for home. I thought I'd be clever and set it up on the girlfriend's Windows XP laptop. Failed, big time. So out came the Mac and the wireless network was configured, running and secure in 10 minutes!

The guy who said "if you can't configure something with a Mac then you shoudn't own a computer" was so right.

I'm just kicking myself that I didn't buy a Mac years ago. I think the girlfriend may have seen the light as well!

Cheers, Dom

Which guy said that :-) ? The only time I've had trouble configuring stuff on a mac is when it comes to communicating with a windows box.

I know how you feel. I've been using my Macbook for the past couple of weeks without a single problem. Then I have to look at Windows laptops with all the spyware a typical female teenager sticks on there and get annoyed by how slow it is (not to mention the fact I have to clean up the mess...)

Macs really are designed for simplicity. My sister thinks they're hard to use (which is interesting, since she has yet to use one), but I keep telling her that they had idiots in mind when they made it, lol.
