So I need some advice from people who are bigger geeks than me, and what better place to look than the internet?
I really am looking at getting a MacBook. I'm thinking the 2.4 ghz with 4GB of Ram should be smokin, but I'll take suggestions from anyone who knows Mac better than me. Which is everyone. I'm currently limping along with a 1.6 ghz Gateway which I hate (battery life is not worth a damn) and I'm trying to run Vista with just 1 GB of RAM. Bad idea.
So for what I do - writing, email, surfing porn, and online poker - will I notice the increase in clock speed from 2.1 ghz to 2.4? And do I need 4GB of RAM or is 2GB on a 2.1 ghz processor gonna feel like warp 3 to me anyway?
I've thought about getting the MacBook Air, but can't see paying the premium for style and weight, because it's significantly more expensive and has a significantly slower processor. Comments are open, thanks for the help.
