Hi:

I live in Chile, wher mac prices are incredibly high. That's why I'm asking a friend in the US to buy me a powerbook. I really want to switch, even though apple is making it difficult with the lack of updates to the 15.2". My budget is around 2200.

I have waited too long for a necessary update, and I'm actually recurring to ebay to get a 867 or 1 Ghz 15.2" (12" is too small, and the processor seems a little outdated to me, 17" is too expensive for me). So, now the question is which is the best software available? All my life i have been a wintel victim and i know nothing about mac software, except for, i don't know, office v.X. Please help, I will use my mac mostly for sound editing, multitrack recording, video editing (but not too much, mostly convert avi to vcd to see in my dvd player), internet, word processing (lawyer), and a little photoshop.

Thanks in advance,
