The Bottom Line:
The only thing bad about our purchase was that we hadn't made it sooner!
We'd finally had it with our PC and decided we wanted to go the Mac route. The only experience I'd had with Apple are the iPhone, iTouch, and iPod that we have. We've never had problems with any of these and had heard by word of mouth that their desk and laptops are equally awesome.

Apple had a nice display at Best Buy, where we were able to try out the different models. The salesman was very accommodating to our needs and not just trying to sell us the most expensive unit. I was more interested in the desktop, but my husband really liked the idea of having a laptop. The salesman actually deterred us from the larger, more expensive Macbook with more memory and said that if we used up our space, we could always purchase an external hard drive and it would be less expensive that way.
We were able to turn it on as soon as we got home. It holds an excellent charge (usually around 9-12 hours for us). The package came with a charger and I'm usually near a wall unit when I'm working on the new laptop anyway.
If you're shopping for a PC or Mac, I will tell you that I'm a complete convert. I love the Mac's user interface. It boots quickly and by quickly, I mean lightning fast - less than 30 seconds. It doesn't get bogged down with Internet usage. It's very easy to use. We've had fun just discovering new things about it.
The price was definitely more than what one would pay for a PC, but we expect this purchase to last longer than the PC's that are on the shelves. Our old PC was constantly attacked by different viruses so we had several virus protection programs installed. This seemed to just slow the system down further. It would take so long to boot up and even load all of the icons on the desktop screen. The Macbook was a breath of fresh air as it was ready in an instant.
This piece of technology is definitely of the turn-key kind. I'm not worried about viruses, though Mac does offer a great virus protection plan. My Macbook is ready to work at the push of a button. I've been so impressed. We're usually coupon clippers and very frugal shoppers, but I'm glad we went ahead and spent the extra money on this product.
The only con I can think of is the small screen. We solved that by connecting it to our old computer monitor. Problem solved and my eyes are saved.
I have just been so pleased with this product and I hope that you are, too. If one couldn't tell by the review, I highly recommend the Macbook.
