    So... I'm a Windows user ever since and I'm now looking forward to have a Mac. But I have some doubts.
    ♠ I often use my computer to access the internet, play some games and entertainment, I guess I don't often overcharge my computer memory and ram.
    ♠ I'm really afraid of buying a mac and then having all those compatibility issues and so. Is there any kind of emulator for Mac to allow Windows applications?
    ♠ The Mac Air seems pretty nice, is it as good as its said so?

    Thanks =))

    you can install windows on a mac, or use an emulator if you want to. you can ask apple when you order your system to install boot camp for you (which will allow you to dual-boot your computer with windows xp and os x.)

    the macbook air is damn sexy, and would work fine for your computing needs, but you'll have to forgo an internal optical drive ($99 external available)

    lol, it's internAL optical drive, and it's a cd-rom/dvd drive actually built into your computer (as opposed to external drive, which uses a usb or firewire cable to connect)

    i'm putting that quote in my sig lol

    I just swiched to a mac from windows myself less than a month ago...i had been using windows all my life and know alot about them. I got a black macbook and put xp pro on it via bootcamp. I think that swiching to mac was one of the best decisions that i have ever made, i have also found myself using leopard more than xp. I would Not get a macbook air because 1) the processor is slower 2) no optical drive 3) the price the black macbook or another macbook is less money, has a faster processor, an optical drive, and has a bigger hard drive in it.
