I am in need of some serious buying advice, and would appreciate any input, especially from any of you who are in my similar situation, and/or who have the following equipment that I am considering buying. I now have an iMac Power G4, which is OK, but really showing its age (4 years), and it is pretty slow, especially when working on graphics & photo editing, which I do a lot of. It has 17" screen, 800 MHz, 768 MB RAM, and ATA capacity of 74.53 GB. I also have an external hard drive, which I mostly use for backing up. I plan to organize my photos and eliminate duplicates, so I can use space more efficiently on my external HD and find stuff easier everywhere, but well, you know how that goes... While I have learned to use the computer & various programs, I really have no clue how they work, and therefore what I really need. I have many photos (1,800 for '06 so far, and several years past) and I generally use iPhoto, Photoshop, iDVD, iTunes, create & burn DVD's, use Microsoft Office & Quicken, along with all the typical stuff most people use. I create artwork such as brochures, slideshows, ect, for my small business. I like to keep copies of everything. I'm interested in a laptop (never owned one) with wireless capability, as it would be nice to be able to sit different places in the house and fiddle around editing photos and such, while still being with my husband, while he watches TV or reads (instead of stuck in my office at the far end of our home alone). It would also be great being able to take it on vacation, and to our cabin, where we go fairly often. This would be a business expense and I would qualify for an educational discount. I can afford (within reason) to spend extra money to buy what I truly enjoy/need for something I use often and daily. I’d much rather err on buying too much of a machine, rather than not enough. I'd like a big screen, at least 20'. I do NO gaming. I am thinking of several options: mac pro? Overkill, or good future investment? Is it such a wonderful machine that I can expand it and it will not become outdated? (Unlike my G-3 with a tower, which I use at my business and is still kicking, but slow...) RE: Mac Pro– Recommended configurations & upgrades? I read the video card is lacking. Does this matter if I don’t do gaming? Is it important to upgrade for any other reason? Should I upgrade? I noticed comments about the wireless capabilities. If I have DSL, and hook the Mac Pro to it traditionally (not wireless), can I use a Mac Pro Book, or MacBook, wirelessly in combination? An upgraded iMac? With either of these, for portability, a MacBook or MacBook Pro? Or, instead of these two above a 23" or 30" monitor hooked up to a high-end MacBook Pro, with a wireless keyboard and mouse? This would to provide portability and a desktop in one. I assume I could unhook it when I want to take just the MacBook Pro elsewhere in the house, or on vacation? Then I would always have everything I need in one location. Would this even work? Bad or good idea? Thoughts about screen size? I’ve never had a notebook or worked wirelessly, so I don’t really know if I’ll love it, or what. I should mention I do not live near a Mac store, so I can't easily go play around in there. Any huge changes coming down the pike that would warrent holding off a purchase? (But I don't want to wait for very long) Thank you in advance for any and all input!!! It is sincerely appreciated.
