Buy the bigger MacBook?

I am going to buy my wife her first Mac this next month and we pretty much settled on the mid-range white MacBook. It goes for about R13 000 which I am ok with. I got myself a black MacBook in October last year and the new, white MacBook is more powerful and will more than cater for her needs.

I have been thinking about a different arrangement too, though. I am running out of HDD space (my 160GB drive is just about full) and the new black MacBook comes with a 250GB HDD so I am considering buying myself a new black MacBook (around R15 000) and giving her my current one so I won’t need to spend around R2 000 to upgrade my current MacBook’s drive (that is roughly the cost of a new drive and labour to install it and move all my stuff across – I won’t even think about attempting that myself). Is it a cheek to give my wife my hand-me-down Macbook?

Speaking of new Macs, man that new iMac is gorgeous and powerful!

  1. OS X has a utility that allows you to connect the two Mac’s together via Firewire and it automatically takes your info from the old PC to the new one. I’m not sure what it’s called off the top of my head but it’s somewhere in utilities.

    The black one is awesome although I must be honest I prefer my white one as it picks up less oily finger marks or at least the visible ones 😛

  5. Yeah, it is called Migration Assistant. That is exactly what I am going to use when I migrate. I prefer the black MacBook and found a handy thing that sticks just below the keyboard and which protects that surface from those marks.
