Thank you so much for all the helpful computer advice! Husband and I went to BestBuy tonight and I got a fabulous new MacBook! I love it...I'm so glad I made the switch. Right after leaving BestBuy we stopped in at World Market (right next door to BestBuy so I was carrying the computer box). The cashier saw it and started telling me about how she was thinking of switching to Mac because she had so many problems with her current and past laptops (both HPs). She kept having to restore them to the factory setting too! I didn't really need anymore convincing that Mac was the way for me to go, but that really seemed like a good sign!
I couldn't resist getting a fun pink case!
