I don't know why everyone is always hyped up about time machine.

I personally love my MacBook Pro's design (or all MBP's, for that matter) the most. My decals also make me cum.

With a Mac Mini, you're pretty much just paying for a computer to run OS X natively (which I'm not saying there is anything wrong with that) but the hardware specs are pretty much shit compared to competing PC hardware specs when looking at prices.

IMO, try and find a cheap hackintosh setup if you're on a budget and really want OS X.

the white macbook, but like $OD said, if you wanna jump to mac, you should at least get an MBP.

both the mac mini and the white macbook are overpriced and underpowered.

I'd just wait until the white macbook and/or macbook air get upgraded. Or you could jump on refurb white macbook for like 850 (which is still overpriced for the low specs, but will do the job if you really want OSX.)Plus, at least you could up the ram and HDD on it. The Core 2 Duo is outdated, but it still isn't a bad processor.

if you have the money buy the 15.
the 13 has an integrated video card, while the 15 has a separate video card which will drastically improve the speed/performance with video editing. also the 15 base model comes equipped with quad cores. don't make the same mistake i did...|0
