It's not about the money, something very few seem to understand. The Macs regardless of which model you choose are far more intuitive (therefore "easy") than their PC counterparts. I have yet found anyone who can place a dollar value on "easy". I only know that whenever I have had to use a PC, it is like trying to write with my left hand and I am right handed - it just seems borderline fruitless! That said, much of what is considered "easy" is what one grew up with so if all you know are PC's then there is a good chance you might feel awkward when you get your hands on a Mac. More people stay with a Mac once they try it. The "Air" has gotten really good reviews and is probably the biggest seller now. If you are really serious about this and if there is an Apple store near where you live, you might want to head to it tomorrow morning and look at a couple of the other models, the 13" MacBook Pro stands out. The larger screen might be worth the extra $150 - $200 plus you will have the added benefit of playing with all of the Mac computers for hours on end, asking the Mac folks all the questions you want until both their ears and yours turn blue. If if you don't walk out of the store with a new laptop (or refurbished through the Apple website, or buy this computer online when you are at the Apple store - you will still get a great education on how the Apple side of computing works. Good luck, have fun and happy wooting!
