    Default Which Mac?

    Basically, I just got a payout of 500 for turning up to college and doing well, so Im looking to upgrade my pc. Ive always wanted a mac, so im looking at their laptops. Which one would give my pc a run for its money. My pc is:

    Athlon Xp 2000+
    768mb Ram
    240gb HDD
    Ati Radeon 9200se 128mb AGP

    A MacBook would be your best bet. They start at $1099.

    Which one? Should I fork out the extra for the white with 1gb of ram, or would the cheapest one beat my pc?

    I like the black one, but I want a new computer soon, so Id be willing to buy one of the white ones if it was better than what im running now.

    The only diffrence between the mid-white and the black models are the hard drive space. If you can live with 80Gb, then get the white and save yourself $200. Or you could go all out and get the black. All of the MacBooks will be better than your current rig.

    Panther I think.

    Think Leopard is coming out soon.

    I think I might wait till Leopard is out, cos then I don't have to fork out for an upgrade, and there might be some hardware upgrades

    Do you think I might be able to run Flight Simulator X on the Black Macbook?

    Or will it look absolutely awful and/or have terrible FPS?
