merC maziar jan ,
i'm mostly using windows , but i like some programs like shake or final cut that only runs on macs .
but anyway , does windows performs as other windows based laptops on macbooks without any unexpected latencies or problems ? and does 2.4ghz 3mb cashe on macs performs that much slower than 2.5ghz 6mb cashe on hp art edition ?
i mostly use video editing programs and 3d programs but i also want something that gives me some battery life , what about their battery ? my old hp under 100 cpu usage gives me 50- 80 minutes , what about macbooks ?

and from all points of views which one ?

glad to see Iranians here:)

Well 2.5GHZ CPU with 6MB cache perform better than 2.4GHZ with 3MB cache especially in cpu intensive apps :) well if u go with OS X leopard u will have less erros and bugs but u are limited with programs,most apps are for windows.also i dont recommend u getting MACBOOK because its not built to do heavy tasks,i say if u need OS X go for MACBOOK PRO and thats expensive IMO.
I would go for Windows because aside from the less bugs and errors that OS X has windows has more apps IMO.

Agreed. Macbooks are for average users, and even at that, they're overpriced. You would need a Macbook Pro. You can get much more power from a PC for the prices those go for.

I still maintain there is no reason to get a Mac over a PC. I've never found one, I doubt I ever will.

Unless you need those mac apps, which I highly doubt there aren't better programs out for PC's, I would get a PC.

still if you want to go with the macbook you have the ability to have both windows and MacOSX on it so you have both worlds on it. but i too think there overpriced and not worth the extra bucks unless you are going for style
