So my laptop is aging. Its about 5 years old, which isn’t bad for a lot of people but things are starting to go bad as well. Neither battery works and the hard drive is starting to grind a lot worse than it used to. So I have a feeling its only a matter of time before my laptop totally dies. So naturally I’d love to replace it. What am I thinking about getting? A mac. Good idea? Bad idea? I don’t know. I’m really worried about getting one. I have never actually owned one and never used one for more than 30 minutes in one sitting. At that I’ve probably ever used one a grand total of say eight times. So the idea of switching to OS X is a bit daunting as well. I’ve been using Linux now long enough that I feel comfortable enough with it that I can break it and fix it on my own. The same goes for Windows (at least XP and prior). Which one am I looking at now then?Yeah, thats a black one, but you can’t convince me to pay an extra $200 just so I can get a black case. Thats a macbook, not a pro. Price is really the main factor. I don’t really want to pay a lot for it. My only real requirement at this point is I’d like to have 2G of RAM instead of the stock 1G. I don’t know how much difference that will make when using OS X but it helps Windows tremendously and it did Linux justice. Suggestions and comments are more than welcome. This is after all an expensive decision.
