Going to school next year in naval architechture and was looking around for a new computer. My laptop is going to be 2 and she is getting old. I just bought me a nice gaming machine (6000+ AMD, 3 gigs of RAM, 8800GT Video Card) so I don't need it for games. It's basically for Word, Excel, Email, Calendar, MSN. I was looking at the MacBook and really like it. I like the size of it (a 13inch screen is fine) and something that is light. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Also had this laptop in mind

What could be the pros of cons of this one compared to the MacBook?

You say you're just going to be using it for "Word, Excel, Email, Calendar, MSN". So if you aren't going to be using any memory-demanding gaming applications and what not on it, then what's wrong with the one you've got? Is it just that it's two years old? So what? If it serves for what you need it to, then it doesn't really need to be replaced, does it? So keep using it. And then you can go spend the money on other cool stuff. :thumbsup:

I guess you are right... I did want a car too... maybe an extra 1000 dollars on my car budget wouldn't be such a bad thing :thumbsup:
