When my old Apple laptop (Powerbook G4) stopped working properly, mostly due to me not taking care of it properly, I knew i needed to get a new Mac ASAP. I had about £700 already saved up, but decided to save around another £100, so I could get a Macbook with slightly better specs (this one is 2.4GHz and has a 100GB HDD). As soon as I could, I bought my Macbook from Amazon.co.uk, along with as many protective items I could find - I didn't want to ruin this laptop like I had the last!
Anyway, being a Mac user for my whole life, I obviously didn't need to get used to the OS. As with every Apple computer, all I needed to do was take the Macbook out of the box, start it up, and within a couple of minutes it was up and running.
One of my favourite features of Apple's these days is Boot Camp, an application that allows you to dual boot the computer into Windows. I thought this might be tricky to configure, but within a couple of hours I had the Windoze OS installed on my laptop as well. As much as I hate using any OS other than Mac, I do need Windoze for the occassional usage (such as webam chats via MSN Messenger), but I try to avoid using it whenever possible!
I have never had any problems with my Macbook. Many PC users complain that Macs are hard to use, and that there isn't any software available for them. However, they couldn't be more wrong!
The Operating System is so easy to use, even a new user can get used to it within seconds. The OS also uses a lot less RAM than Windows seems to use, saving more for any programs you want to use. I can be running a dozen applications at once on my Macbook and barely notice any lagging.
As for software available - most Windows programs are also available for Mac, and if not there are always alternatives (which a lot of the time are cheaper and better). The only problem I've had is that some games aren't available for Mac, but seeing as I also have Windows installed, I can still play them on my Macbook.
One of the best things about owning a Mac is the support from Apple. My Macbook came with a year's free warranty (which I never even needed to use). With every Mac product I've owned, if i have any problem, I just send it off to Mac, and they either send it back within a few days repaired, or simply send a replacement. I feel more safe buying from Apple than from any other company!
Summary: If you can afford it, definitely buy a laptop from Apple.
