    Gone and ordered...
    Hello

    Placed an order for a MacBook 2.4, 4GB RAM, 250GB HDD...

    I was torn between the MB and the MBP went with the former mainly due to the form factor and I pretty much only need it need for general work and maybe some easy web work.

    I've decided to get myself the Apple LED Cinema Display when it's released.

    A couple of questions....

    1) I was tempted to go for the SSD option but thought it best to wait, any idea when some new offerings will be hitting the market? Would like the price to come down a notch.

    2) What Wireless Printer would you recommend, inject based please.

    3) Can the Time Capsule be used as a normll HDD over the network to store files etc

    4) I'm after a MB case (sleeve) with a handle, appreciate the assistance.

    Many thanks for your time

    I got the same exact computer but I upgraded the RAM myself. I love it!

    1. 256 GB is going to be mass produced soon. Prices are still to high, wait till next time to buy a laptop. There will be more space and more affordable.

    2. If you are thinking time capsule get a good ole usb printer and use the time capsule to share the printer. Will save you money and consolidate your home IT inventory.

    3. Yes it can, you can use it as a network share for all computers including PC's and as your time machine backup for multiple macs.

    4. I got a marware sportfolio deluxe, it is pretty much a really nice sleeve that fits your ac adapter and any other random things, it is very small, fairly expensive at 80 bucks, but super nice, small, and light. No more than you need and no less.

    I think terrible1one3 means wait until next time to buy a laptop with SSD.

    1) I'll wait until SSD prices come down, it seems pretty easy to change the HDD

    2) Could I use a standard NAS drive for Time Machine backups? I assume only certain printers will work in shared mode via the TC?

    3) The sportfolio looks really cool, thanks for the link

    4) Do you know of any bluetooth headphones, don't want to disturb others at home when I'm watching a movie / listening to music

    Thanks :-)

    Yep, I've waited long enough, we should have seen greater uptake of SSD for laptops at least to drive down prices. Why have manufacturers held back all this time, down to production most probably however one would have thought demand increases output which in return reduces cost.
