First of all, hi everyone! I'm a newbie here, though I've been devouring mac forums for a month now, being so fascinated by the whole Apple world.. I'm still a depressed pc user and saving up my money to buy a mac and switch asap.. The thing is I have no clue of which model to buy and I need some help. I've narrowed down my choice to 3 models: I know that I will eventually buy both a desktop and a laptop so I've opted for an I-book and an I-mac. As for the I-book, a 12"/800 ghz would cost me 1.500 and a 14"/1ghz would cost me 2.000... the question is: does this ghz difference really matters for doing coomon stuff like surfing, e-mail, typing (a lot of!), music and some photoshop? Is the price difference worth it? [apart from getting a bigger screen of course.. I'm used to a 10" sony vaio so a 12" would be huge to my eyes anyway!) As for the I-mac, the 17" model with a 1.25ghz g4 would cost me 2.400.. I have to decide whether to buy the laptop first or the i-mac and since I wanna be impressed by the first mac i own (and probably play with it 24/7 for the first few months), what do you think I should buy first? I don't immediately need portability ('cause I still can work, even if depressed, on my vaio) but if the i-mac doesn't give you a much better performance than the i-book, i'd rather go for portability now... Thanks for any reply!
