yay! i love macs. Once you get it i swear you'll be on it for like 5 hours because everything is so easy to use and all the features are really cool and stuff =) you should film videos on imovie, cuz then after you film you can start editing right away, cut stuff out, put in music, text, etc. it might be kind of tricky at first but once you learn its really easy to use. Yeah photobooth is already installed in all macbooks. if you have that tiny square thing (camera) at the top of the screen then it means you can film videos, take pics, video chat, and all that fun stuff. with macs, its so easy to access everything, and you don't have to worry about viruses. Its relaly easy to organize everything and its easy to take around with you, like at the library and stuff. The one and only thing tahts kind of iffy is that my battery is very low now so I have to plug it in all the time. Make sure when you get it that once its fully charged, you take out the power cord. If you leave it in all the time, it drains out your battery life. that's what happened to me =( Also, sometimes some programs might not be compatible with macs, like maybe some video players online.but all the microsoft office works so its no problemm. oh and also you might have to check if your printer is compatible with macs. but other than that, there really isn't anything to dislike about macs =) haha sorry this was like really longg but i hope you like your new macbook! =)

IMOVIE!! So many people make the mistake of using photobooth. Photobooth flips your video so everything is backwards.

-do all macbooks already come with photobooth installed.
yup

-whats the best thing you like about macs
it seems more like a toy than a computer.. you know?? it's so personal and has a lot of good programs.

-whats the worst?
there is a program you can use where you can run windows on your mac, which is awesome.. but you have to own a copy of vista. so if you don't have that then you can't run windows programs, unless it's made for mac, like Word for Mac.

Mac's are amazing!! :]
1) YOu can you photobooth to shoot videos and drag them into imovie but the easiest way is to just use imovie and film/edit all in there. There is even a add to youtube feature which you'll love :]]]]
2) all this is already installed: photobooth, imovie, iphoto, etc. but microsoft word and powerpoint you have to install yourself. you probably want to buy it there! :]

Best thing: ichat! my favorite! :]

Worst: None I love my mac to deathh :]

I have an imac desktop computer :). definitely use imovie to film. also, I suggest learning imovie and all of the different features that it has, such as editing, titles, importing background music, voiceovers, etc. This is a great asset for youtube videos as well as for school projects and such :) overall, macs are just SUPER FIN.

I HAVE A TIP!
Search the internet for Imovie HD (or Imovie 06) because its MUCH easier to use and you have effects.
