    If you like Ubuntu, you can install it on your Macbook next to OS X. Here’s some information on it:

    I would suggest you try out Gentoo on your MBP as well. Basically you build the OS from the basic components, and learn a LOT about Linux/Unix this way. There are guides to installing it on a MBP without trashing OS X, like here:
    Gentoo has some of the best documentation and forums in the Linux world, so if you experience trouble there’ll be someone to help ๐Ÿ™‚

    Backing up is definitely a good idea, btw, especially with Gentoo… don’t be surprised if your first few revisions of your kernel panic upon startup ๐Ÿ˜‰

    And if you don’t want to deal with the whole build-it-yourself thing, I would 2nd (3rd?) Ubuntu as a good option. I also hear good things about Fedora.

    You did make the right choice, I grew up always using Macintosh computers. I myself now use the MacBook, it is great for what I am doing with it. If I had the choice I would always go for apple products, I am a true apple fan, and on top of that a happy one. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Apple Laptops

    Excellent choice there.
    I have always been brought up to use windows and I got a Mac last christmas and feel like I’ve missed out on so much.
    The Mac’s os is so much simpler and easier to use and the Laptops themselves are stunning.

    I hope to be getting myself one of the new Macbook pro Models soon.

    Yup, makes me wish I made the switch to a unix based system earlier.

    I guess you made a right decision when you did not go for IBM laptops,I also do not like them at all.I personally prefer Dell laptops at most.
