I just got a MacBook and I was wondering what are some of the good latex editors out there?

It may not suit all, but Archimedes is a great, lightweight editor that supports Markdown and LaTeX: http://www.mattrajca.com/archimedes [Broken]

Great for casual drafts / homework assignments.

I agree with you, Hepth. It has internal pdf viewer and so it makes the screen compact, I think.

I use Kile on my macbook as well as my linux desktop. It's hard to beat Kile, IMHO.

If you use R then I suggest you going with R-Studio, there's a LaTeX editor integrated in it (R Sweave) as long as you have the (free) TeX libraries installed on your computer. I use that because I *always* use R when I write my LaTeX, and my macbook is getting quite old so having both in the same software makes it easier for my CPU.

But if you don't use R, then I suggest you take a look at LyX. It is, by far, the most intuitive TeX editor I have ever used.
