Engadget, I need a new Macbook with large amounts of storage, but can't afford the $$$
details
Here's the background. I have a 2008 unibody Macbook, which I just recently, about a year or two ago upgraded my HDD to a 1TB drive. That set me back around $150. The problem is now I can't justifying upgrading my laptop and spending $700 for equivalent SSD memory, when I spent a fraction of that last year. I need to get a new laptop, amd would prefer a

Syncing Chrome Bookmarks with iCloud/iOS. Without using XMarks.
details
I've always used Safari for looks and because it syncs bookmarks with my iOS devices. But I can't argue that Chrome is more stable, if not a bit faster. Of course, the way to sync Chrome bookmarks with iOS is the classic XMarks workaround, but it's inelegant, and XMarks (oddly enough) eats up memory on my older MacBook.

Any other ideas? Or is it all in my head, and I should just stick with Safari?

I'm thinking of buying an apple macbook (white), I moved away from windows a couple of years ago now relying mostly on ubuntu or some other derivative,…

I have a quick (or not so quick) question regarding Windows compatibility.
details
I currently own and use a HP desktop with Windows 7 for my PPL Education software (Private pilot's license), however, after owning a Macbook for 8 months which I use for virtual high school work & using my father's iMac for Adobe CS5 software, using the desktop induces much lethargy (note: personal opinion only). Also, the tower is simply titanic, and takes up a good amount of desk space - therefore, I would like to replace the desktop with a Mac Mini. However, my PPL software is... Read more →

My MacBook (the second-most recent (still the new smooth form factor) generation, so without extra long battery etc.

) is over a year old (12-13 months) and is having a few speed issues when running Minecraft. I struggle to get Safari to work properly, and also the game itself is laggy and slow. What are your key tips for speeding up your Mac? Thanks in advance.

Does the $1,200 MBP have enough computing power to justify the price tag?
details
I'll be starting college next year and I don't know if I should go with the 13-inch Macbook, or Macbook Pro. I've never used a Mac before; I'm not planning to use my machine for gaming or intense photo/video editing - but $200 seems justifiable for the aluminum unibody (plus firewire, SD card reader, stroking my ego, etc).
