I think I"d be fine with the regular macbook too. As long as I can use bootcamp and run photoshop, that's about the heaviest program I use, I'm fine.

And I'm definately getting a black one, I don't care if it's more expensive

You can't run Photoshop on a Mac? Really?

I'm curious to see if they get rid of the color schemes and go aluminum like the MacBook Air. I agree that the black looks better, but I'm a cheap ass so if I have to have a white one to save $100, I'll use the white one. Doesn't make me racist.

Photoshop has been around for Mac just as long as it has been for Windows.

Now if only it didn't cost $650 bucks.

Wait, I need a different version of photoshop for mac? Damn, I wanted to install mine on the mac partition...

I hope they don't go aluminium! It looks ugly to me!

And no beav, choosing the cheapest option doesn't make you a racist, only a cheapskate

Unfortunately, yeah - if all you've got is the Windows version then you're stuck using Windows. They should really have a discount program where you get a significant percentage off if you're buying the same program, but for a different platform than the one you already purchased.

That being said, I just ordered CS3 for Mac. And there goes the rest of my bonus check.

Well in this case it's not Microsoft, it's Adobe. But the result is still the same.

for real. while i'm listening to an album in particular, it's recommending i buy said album. but...i already have all the tracks. they're even tagged the same.

and i am also getting recommendations for downloading the song i'm currently listening to because they have the title wrong on itunes.

I frequently allow my hatred of all things Microsoft to get in the way.

The biggest difference between the MacBook and MacBook Pro, well, besides how incredibly cooler people with MacBook Pros are, is that the Pro has a much better graphics card - faster & more powerful processor, and dedicated memory. The MacBook's card shares its memory with the main memory, so depending on what you've got open your graphics will suffer. The Pro will also support larger external monitors and can drive both the laptop screen and an external monitor at the same time (another useful feature for photo/video editing).
It also actually has a disk drive, which is a plus for some people.

I wouldn't trade my MacBook Pro for anything else in the world... except for maybe Pee-wee's bicycle, but that's about it.

The MacBook has a disk drive, doesn't it? The MacBook Air doesn't though. I am unimpressed with the Air.

Bought an iPod Touch, 32gb about three weeks ago, and it is amazing. I can even read serious literature on it, it's great. Been reading Les Miserables whilst listening to music on the way in to uni and back. Definitely worth the money.

The regular MacBook does have a disk drive.

Fedex dropped off a package today. My MacBook Pro is here, and it is awesome.

And currently installing almost a gig's worth of software updates, so I'm stuck using my Mini until it's done. Woe is me!
