A couple of warnings about the macbooks...

1) there is no insert button and no other key combo to get an insert
(very essential in maya or vi/vim etc...)

2) wifi is a little buggy (use to have to use ndiswrapper, but now
ubuntu has a wl native driver for it)

3) no middle or right mouse buttons (although you can tweak the xorg
conf to recognize 2-finger tap and 3-finger tap as middle and right)

just somethings to consider
