"Very good, and I am hoping it will get better"4.0 starson by nonprofit
Pros: the operating system The software that comes with it The built in isight, CAN USE XP AND OSX
Cons: Many software problems due to intel like expensive adobe creative suite, many other educational programs I bought that will not work either, learning curve for pc users
Summary: I needed to buy a new computer for my home and with vista computer specs I ended up getting the 2.0 with a 128 graphics card and 1gb of memory. The price is close and I get both operating systems. I use a mac laptop and my kids love it. We use both operating systems depending on the software. However, my kids love the mac side and make their own movies with the isight.
Even with the cons, I have a computer that can crossover when I need it to use software only for windows. This is important, because there is a lot of educational software I bought which said pc and mac, but it doesn't work with this mac.
Also, there is a learning curve for the new software.
To end on a positive note, because the intel mac offers the best and worst of both worlds, it is well worth it. If you have a creative child that wants to create, the preinstalled programs are great.
I am writing this review as the average xp part convert with a lot to learn. I don't like mac addicts because they are not honest because the computer does freeze, etc. but the computer is a step above xp in my view and worth a 9 rating
