Hello everyone. Macbook junkies, I need your help! Please Register or Log in to view images I'm going to university next year and my grandparents said that they'll buy me a laptop if I actually get into a uni of my choice. But they will only go for around $800 CAN for the most. I really, really, really, really really want an Apple computer. I've been with Windows all my life (I've never even seen a Mac in real in my life, although I would love to), mainly because of market and pricing. But I want to see what I will get for my money if I put out, say, at most $1500. Also, I read here (which seems like a very fair test) - http://www.popularmechanics.com/technology/reviews/4258725.html - that both an iMac and a Macbook ran Windows faster than a PC with 1 more Gb of RAM. Sounds tempting! So, considering the following categories, and a maximum price of $1500 (although I would prefer the lowest price as possible), what is the max specs, i.e. value for money I can get on either a Macbook or Macbook Pro (not Air). -Price -Size (preferebly NOT a 13"...and i think 17" might be just too much greenery....so a 15" will have to do) -Core speed (around 2.53Ghz....preferebly more but not if it costs too much)* -RAM (I would love 4GB)* -HDD (160GB is more than enough) -Graphics card (ability to run some high end games - not like hardcore games but you know what I mean)* -Can be used for everything UNIVERSITY -Weight and thickness (not that important) *Can run, Vista or Windows 7 (if it can, it will definitely run XP, which, if I can find a copy of, I will definitely use), just in-case of compatibility and market (software for Macs are really expensive, like if I buy this I won't be able to afford iWork or whatever you call it). Also I want to ease into Leopard, as I have use Windows all my life. Like my baby blanket. Just keep in mind that I'm broke because I just spent all my savings (1 yr worth) on my iPod Touch 16GB 2nd gen. So price is kinda priority. Then specs, then weight. Try and stay away from a 13"...it's too small for me, and if a 17" will be in my price range, I would love it. Just to help me, if you can, can you post the price, all the specs, and the size of the models I should consider? I don't have the time to research it as I am not supposed to be on the computer (my mom banned me), and I just barely finished typing this put. Or would it just make sense to forget it and buy a PC? Edit:...oh yea...and I think it should be an aluminum case....or is there any better?
