64-bitness for the average user
I'm sooo ready to drop the loot for a new black Macbook because I desperately want to make the jump from Windows (which has been good to me, I'll admit) to Mac. The problem is the waiting game for the update. I'm not sure if the Macbook will get updated along with the MBP, and if they made a 13" MBP I'd definately have to consider. I figure it'd be nice to have a GPU for games but it's not a necessity for me and I'd rather have the extended battery life of the Macbook. My only reasons for waiting on it is to see if maybe the C2D will have a big impact on battery life, although I know it's not suppose to, I'm hoping that Apple has found a better battery solution. Also I'm wondering about the 64-bitness of Leopard. Is this really going to be a big deal for the average user? I've read that it's mainly only for serious video editing junkies and hardcore developers. And the 4 to 16 gigs of ram or whatever that it supports is really just overkill and going to bog down the system response. Are we really going to see any 64 bit love for the average user in the next 3-5 years??
