The requirements are a joke. You're safe.

what the ****, i have had no experience with mac os's but im sure theyre just the same ****ty memory hog as vista, 1gb ram = getting too pussified by todays standards, the cpu is good though, dunno how youll manage with only 80 gb of room.
i can say only one thing, getting a brand machine equals to you getting skull****ed in both of your eyesockets.
I bet you paid a ****load for it too just to be *****d out. To get good performance you need to have atleast 2gb ram , and its been widely suggested that the 2,4ghz line for core2duos is the most optimum but many feel safer with 2,6

you can't compare vista and mac OS.

mac OS is, I believe, far more efficient than vista atm.

The first thing when youre buying a laptop you should take notice , is what are you going to use it for.
For surfing the web you could get an ****ing asus eee pc thats like 499$
For gaming is dell xps series, quite costly.
I say the 2,0ghz is good FOR GAMING on laptops. But since you dont have a real videocard it wont do good.

If you want to do the following :
watching movies, downloading , internet, doing school stuff, minor photoshop and so on :
Get something cheaper: http://www.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/inspnnb_1525?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&~tab=bundlestab

the 3rd one with subtotal 699$ should probably go for you good.
+ seeing as you are a ***** for everything trendy its got vista premium.


bottom line : if you want a computer just to be 'trendy' dont get it , get it if you truly need it.
I say for gaming pc's build your own and for laptops go dell, samsung is pretty promising also, but dell has never failed.

i actually dont compare it to vista, vista is an horrible attempt at an OS, xp is where its at, but since everyone getting a laptop seems to be someone trying to be trendy lately , rather than do things with it.

All the Mac haters don't know what they're missing.

My dad uses a crappy Mac that we got for like $50 - but OSX is a *****load easier to use than anything else, specifically for music recording... and especially when it's got GarageBand on it!
