I just bought my son a MacBook for going to college. I have been a life-long microsoft / p.c. user so this wasn't done lightly. My kids have tested my PC administration skills over the years and they finally broke me down. After XP locked up solid, I re-installed the system only to find I couldn't get my licensed version of Office to work. Who knows whats wrong. It shouldn't be that difficult.
The macbook has worked great and is a lot of fun to use. If only Battlefield 2142 worked on a Mac I would buy another for myself.
