I have owned 5 laptops for the last 6 years, which are a lot of laptops if you ask me... From a Toshiba Satellite with DSTN screen, going next to an IBM Thinkpad 600x and owning only macs since then: Powerbook G4 550 titanium, Powerbook G4 1Ghz 12" and, since yesterday, a shinny (second handed) Macbook 2 Core Duo.
All those machines were bought second handed and sold consequently. I have been lucky enough with all of them to never consider buying a new (from stores) laptop. And as such, I am very impressed with a lot of aspects of my new Macbook:
- Spectacular reflective screen (both in terms of size: 13", 1280x800 and visual quality).
- SPEED. Much better than my lovely Powerbook G4 12".
- Great design all over the place (it's from Apple anyway).
- Battery: more than 4 hours (woow!). This computer is going to stay for a loong time with me!
