Re: HELP! Buying a Laptop
I used to have the white MacBook, and currently have the newer Aluminum MacBook. I swear by Mac products. My old MacBook was 2 years old and works amazingly well and is faster and stronger then my sister's new PC laptop.
You can customize the specs anyway you like, and utilizing Time Machine has saved my butt so many times.
The only people I know who have had a MacBook battery problem are people who didn't realize it's a lithium battery, and did not know or care to calibrate their battery 1-3 times a month. It's simple, and helps maintain it.
