I sort of decided what laptop to buy. It will be a Mac, and very probably a MacBook rather than a MacBook Pro. I don’t think the extra power of a Pro is worth 6000 extra kronor. The one thing I’m not sure about is screen size: MB with 13.3″ might feel small, perhaps the MBP with 15.4″ would be better? I’ll have to look at them both in real life before I can make a final decision.

In fact I don’t even need the highest-spec MacBook: 160GB hard drive is more than enough for me, given that I have used about 35GB on my current hard drive.
