Finally, I broke down and purchased a white MacBook. I made this purchase mainly to do software development on it, and also to use it as a light weight laptop alternative. I have been using a heavy 15.4 inch Dell, which I have been happy with, except for it’s size.
My MacBook came with a 2 GB of RAM, 160 GB HD, with a disappointing Intel Graphics Card (Intel GMA X3100). I did not want to get the MBP yet, as this is my first Mac System, so I wanted to ween my self slowly into the world of Apple.
Also, I have installed Vista Ultimate on it using Bootcamp 1.2 and to my surprise, I could not believe how easy the whole process. I am impressed with the performance of Vista running on the MacBook. Right now I am still learning my way around the Mac OS X.
The first applications I have installed so far:
– Office 2008 for Mac
– iPhone SDK
– Live Messenger, and Yahoo Messenger
…and I am still looking to what other applications to install.
