I recently bought a new laptop. I got it from Apple. It is a macbook. It is my saving grace. I don't know how I would ever live without it. I am on it 24/7. I can use it all day as long as II have it on the charger. It is very nice. It is slim. It has a nice 15 inch screen. I plays media (Music, Video, Movies, Games) without any problems. Though, its screen might not be very big, it has a wonderful operating system. It runs Mac OSX Snow leopard. It is the best OS I have ever used.
I use my macbook for everything. From school work, to personal pleasure. It is good for everything. I have used Macs my whole life and I have never gotten a single virus. It is the best out there. Though it is quite expensive, it is worth the money.
It is ready to go as soon as you pull it out of the box. All you do is plug the power adapter in and turn on the computer and you are set. No fidgeting around with disks. The Mac operating system is pre-installed and ready to go right out of the box.
