I would like a labtop they are really pricey things though. Maybe you guys can help me decide the right Macbook for me. heres what i would be doing

    Watching movies
    Downloading Stuff from *******s
    Downloading stuff like Music
    Photoshoping allot
    customizing my ipod touch or my iphone when it comes out
    Surfing the web allot!
    Using MSN chat clients
    Listening to music allot
    I also Burn allot of DVD's and CD's for friends

    Now the Questions

    Well, for all the stuff you listed, i would suggest the mid-range Macbook. Having a Macbook, i can confidently say you can do all the tasks you listed with ease.

    Well, I know you can extract .rar files using a program called The Unarchiver. It's on the Apple website.

    Some applications that will do the stuff you want.

    Watching movies - VLC Player/Nice Player
    *******s - Transmission
    Download stuff like music - Frostwire
    Photoshop - Photoshop
    Customize iPod - SDK, Pwnage tool, etc.
    Surfing the Web - Mozilla, Camino, Safari, etc.
    MSN chat clients - aMSN is the best
    Listening to music - iTunes
    DVD/CD burning - Already comes with the Mac, I know there are some applications, but can't think of them at the top of my head

    1. Rar/Zip files - YES, there are many things that can be used, but I recommend StuffIt-Expander

    2. *******s - Transmission is one of the best FREE ones

    3. Customize Touch - SDK, Pwnage Tool, etc.

    4. Illegal Music - Yes, you can use Frostwire or Limewire, but I am highly against Limewire.

    5. To view movies in DivX stream, I think VLC supports DivX, not sure though. Otherwise, there is a DivX Quick-Time plug-in.

    6. Wireless comes built in to all MacBooks (including Pros), iMacs, (I think) Mac Mini, and for a small fee, for the Mac Pro also.

    You must be pretty bulimic to use Windows for ten years, and vomit at least once a week.
