I've recently decided to switch my desktop for a laptop (well, not switch entirely cos my desktop still works, but I need to be a bit more mobile). Here's my problem - I've been a PC girl all my computing life, and I'd really like to switch to a MacBook, but I don't know anything about Mac OS and I don't know anyone who has one. So could all the Mac people give me an idea about what they're like to live with, work on etc?

Oh, and do I get the 2.0 GHz or the new 2.16?

Many thanks,

2.0 ghz is fine for basic use. If you are going to be using processor hungry programs, or burning a lot of DVD's, I'd recommend the 2.16. You may want to go with the 2.16 anyway just because you won't be able to upgrade the processor later, unlike say the RAM .

Agreed with Aslan, I would go with the faster one.
I have a Macbook Pro, and I absolutely love it. It may seem weird at first since you've been a PC user all your life, but you'll get the hang of it in no time.
