I have always been moderately interested in computers, and had wanted a new laptop for the longest time. I'm a musician, as well as a writer, and use pictures and internet very often; my 2004 Windows PC desktop couldn't handle the memory capacity and internet speed that I needed.
I've been a fan of Apple ever since I got my first iPod Mini - about five years ago - and have been wanting a Mac computer for a long time, for several reasons.
For starters, Macs work quickly and effeciently in almost any circumstances, no matter how many pictures or songs you store on it. Also, most Macs feature some really nice programs, such as Photobooth, Garageband, iMovie, and Dashboard, all of which are extremely easy and convenient to use. My favorite Apple program would have to be iChat, which allows you to use either your AIM account or your @mac.com email account for instant messaging.
The internet works incredibly well on this computer - it's fast, as well as being very easy to connect to any wireless network with.
The new MacBook includes a built in webcam, slim profile, lightweight design, suffecient memory space, and all the programs us Mac user love so much.
I would definitely recommend this computer to anyone and everyone, and it is one of the best investments I have made in a very, very long time.
