Last week, I finally took the plunge and bought a Mac. After my ancient 10 lb. Toshiba laptop finally died after a long five year run, I felt like I deserved a nice, lightweight laptop. I started doing research about a month ago on the best laptop to get, but I finally bought it on impulse last week after a reassuring call to a friend with the same laptop. All it took was a quick credit check and a three minute wait before I had my laptop in my hands and happily sauntered out of Best Buy.
