I've been tempted before, but I'm now just about convinced to plunk down some cash for a new Macbook... or maybe a Mini. I mostly want to use it to record music and edit video, something that I can do with a PC but not as well. (I've done a little recording lately, but the programs keep crashing, various things work one time and then don't, tpical Windows things.) Also, my laptop is what I use for work, and I'd rather keep my creative hobbies (music, video editing) on a different machine. I'd prefer a Macbook, so here are my questions: - $1099 versus $1299 versus $1499: the black one is cooler looking, and it'd be nice to have a DVD burner built-in. But is it worth the extra money? Is the lowest-end model still good enough for my needs? - I've read that upgrades are imminent (Leopard, new processor) but how soon? Is it worth waiting for? Thanks in advance.
