Yeah another "should I switch and throw money at apple" thread.
I've been toying with the idea of getting an ibook since my PC never stops to disappoint....
I'm looking at the 12" iBook with student discount plus free ipod mini (which i plan to sell since I already have one) and have a few questions....
1. Is the iBook good to go straight out of the box in terms of software?
2. Is iWork compatible with opening MS Word and Excel files?
3. Is it worth it to get a total of 1gig memory? (I don't plan on buying from apple...)
4. I know playing games on the iBook is dismal from what i've been reading, but how is WoW on it? Decent or needs that 1gig memory?
Even though Apple software is alot more affordable, I don't want to spend disgusting amounts of money on it. I plan to use it as my main computer for documents, spreadsheets, presentations, internet, some photo editing (might leave it for my PC...) and movies
Also is there a difference if I buy online or from the Yorkdale retail store? Or even my school's store (York)?
Thanks to all who reply!
