    Which one should I get if I am a Boot Camp user, the old White plastic Macbook or the New aluminum Macbook.
    I only need a like two windows only application for windows anyway(TOP - Tales Of Pirates) and Power Tab Editor 1.7.So which one will be the best performance for big file games and who much space should I leave windows if TOP(Tales of Pirates) is 1,155.00MB in size and Power Tab Editor 1.7 is 3.59MB in size....this is the only programs I need on windows and I only need a few on Mac OS X also so which one Should I Get
    The only programs I really need is TOP(Tales of Pirates)and Power Tab Editor 1.7 on windows and Limewire, Opera, and my jailbreak programs on Mac OS X
    So Respond to all the questions above.
    I only need 2 applications from Boot Camp(Windows only applications)and only...I'm going to guess about 3 or 4 applications on Mac OS X.
    Just to let all of you know that I am not going to get the $1,599 one its either the $1,299 one or the $999 one....which one of these

    I would say the latest model. However, it doesn't have FireWire, if that's neccessary for you.

    Rumors (Heard it on a TWiT Podcast) have it that Display Port might be turned into a port for transferring files. Since its much faster than HDMI. HDMI has a speed of 10.2 GBits.

    I know everyone is saying the new Aluminum Macbook, but now I just want to know which one is better for using Boot Camp!
    Psh...I dont even know why I am asking if The New Aluminum Macbook has better graphics but just put your opionins here....and answers to other replies:
    I would say the latest model. However, it doesn't have FireWire, if that's neccessary for you. --> No I dont use Firewire.I just need a Laptop for school,Home, and expierments
    unless the extra 300 is an issue, defininetly go with the aluminum macbook!! --> Yeah It is kind of an issue because I need it fast and I only have enough money for the $1,299 one and the old one.
