yes, you should definately get one
it's in the middle of teh product cycle though, and it's highly speculated that the new ones will be majorly overhauled and have a new design, so get one now if you really need it, if not wait for the new ones

essentially macs are made for multimedia people
so if you're gonna be making dvds and recording music and editing photos and such, the mac is geared towards you, but if you just want a laptop you're probably better off getting a cheaper pc laptop that can do the same but not as well
i loved my mac while i had it....but i had to sell it cuz i needed some money, it's definately a good investment though, but if you don't absolutely need a notebook, i suggest getting the iMac instead

macs are the best of the best. I have one...and they do everything. I'm a computer science/graphic design/music major in school...and it does it all. trust me...macs are the best.
#14
it's for school right? if so log into your school on the apple store and then look around cause for me the prices dropped about 300 bucks or so, it's making it so I can afford a mac book pro, only the base one but still

well it's mid product cycle, but the wait is worth it if they are totally changing them, i suggest going to www.macrumors.com, they have a buyers guide which tells you the info of all their stuff, what the latest updates were and so on, it's the best place for mac info

For what you plan on using it for it's perfect. PCs are just meant to be efficient machines (which is what they are).

Macs on the other hand are very artist friendly and are able to do more and more PC exclusive stuff too as time goes by. They just put out macs that have the leopard operating system and I picked one up right after they came out. Incredibly easy to use and yo can trust the thing to last so I say go for one now if you want.

if you mean those world wide internet dial things any computer can use them they are usb

go to the apple store, i'm sure you can buy one somewhere, the same cards for pcs probably work for macs, but those cost so much a month i think, it's in essence a cell phone connected to your computer

Yeah I think cell phone companies like Verizon make cards to put in your laptop so you can get internets anywhere.
#25
yeah you won't need one unless, well you get a job and your company pays for it. But one word of advise if you have the money get at least 2 gigs of ram trust me you'll be happy in the end.
#26
and one more thing if you're debating windows over OSX, you can install OSX, Windows, and Linux all on your computer, you can even dual boot, so if you have windows only programs, or games, you can still use them, and macs have the best battery life out of any laptop
and just a little side note, the laptop that runs windows vista teh best, is the macbook pro, pretty amazing considering it's not even really made for windows

yes, but get the lowest ram possible, then buy your other ram from www.tigerdirect.com cuz apple charges WAY too much for their ram, at teh end of the day though if you're gonna get one you shoudl get a macbook pro, the investment is worth it

For what you want your computer to do (photoshop, music, movies), you could just get a PC instead of mac for cheaper and still be able to do the same stuff. Macs are generally more expensive than other computers and they give a lot less options in customizing your hardware. So yeah, just get a pc dude, for what you are trying to use it for a mac isn't really necessary and is just more expensive.

WAIT! supposedly mac is coming out with a new macbook [unless you want a pro or an air] in the middle or end of this month.
i'm waiting.

bigger screeen
aluminum [& possibly black aluminum, too.]
better for the environment
& more protective


EDIT: i'm waiting until the end of this month & if the new one's not out, i'm getting a black macbook i'm so excited!

DOUBLE EDIT: plus, if you get one before september, you get a free 8g ipod nano or ipod touch. with mail-in rebate. plus, they have this deal where you can get a printer for free the same way, but all of them are low end, but if it's free & you don't like it, you can buy another one later

the macbook actually has an "airport" card built in that can detect and connect to wireless networks anywhere. you don't need to buy anything seperate.
I thought I heard the door open, oh no,
I thought I heard the door open but
I only heard it close.
