i just ordered a 12" ibook from apple.com with a 512mb memory upgrade, i have a few questions about it.

1.) i noticed macs are a bit more pricey than other laptops, why is this?

2.) will my ibook with 512mb ram run warcraft 3 okay ?

3.) will it take a long time to get use to a new OS ?

1)I'm not sure...good quality?
2) should run fine, but you can always add more ram if it doesn't (though it works on mine)
3) no, i like it better.

1 macs are far better then pc but cost a little $$$ for it

2 im not real a gamer on mac but i would think it would be fine because my bro has a iamc g4 1.25 ghz 256 ram and it is a does what it needs to. Or get more ram which is what i plan to do for a imac g5 whcih now has 1 gig trying to go to 2 gigs.

3 OS is great but it does take time to learn after using windows if that is what you used, it is like learning a 2nd lanuege hard but worth it. ANd this languege is much better then windows

4 ???

Warcraft III works perfectly fine (1024x768 resolution, high detail etc...) on my iBook with the same specs as yours.
