Default Mac laptop, or Windows - I need mac users in here!

Hey, well im choosing a new laptop tomorrow - having a look round with my mother

I was using a mac today, the macbook (1.83Ghz, 1GB RAM, 60GB HDD, 10.4 Tiger) and I liked it - alot.

I looked today, and it is 749! And a good laptop would be like what..400/500?

So, I am really stuck, I want mac, alot, but I need opinions on whether or not it is worth it..what do you mac users think..was it a good spend?

Also, I do not want anyone saying.."Ooo..macs suck, buy a Windows"

Thanks

James

I think you'd be able to do everything you want. I'd go for it. Are you looking at the black one? Those look awesome

If you remeber when I first joined this forum I was a Microsoft fanboy... I didn't advertise it, but I was. I bought a Mac last week... a Mac Mini. That was the absolute best 600 dollars I have ever spent in my entire life. I seriously can't think of anything I have spent 600 dollars on that I have liked more.

I would bought a graphics card and some new RAM with the $600.

However, if I were you, I would get the Macbook. You can still choose between Mac OS X and Windows XP using BootCamp. At least you can run both legally, since running Mac OS X on anything other than a Mac is technically illegal.
