So I’m headed off to university in the fall, my dad says he’ll buy me a laptop if I give him my desktop, which is fine with me. I’m considering getting a mac laptop since I will be only doing basic things, no games, and the stability of apple’s OS would be a great bonus (ie not losing my work). My budget is maximum $1500. I know little about macs as I’ve been a PC user since birth except for those old macs at school. Which mac would be ideal for me? Also:
-Will mac’s wireless internet work with PC wireless routers, etc? or will I have to buy that aiport extreme or whatever
-Looking at the ibooks, they come with 256mb of ram, which seems like not enough, and like 97 bucks to upgrade to 512mb ouch!, with OS X Tiger or whatever, is 256mb enough? I would like having at least 512mb though.
Any suggestions/comments will be greatly appreciated.
