I have two machines. One PowerBook and one 2.4 Pentium 4 which I used for gaming. I don't really game a whole lot, college takes that away which is fine, but I really only see myself using windows for one thing and it is not an everyday thing so I sold, or am in the process of selling my Windows machine. I plan on buying a shuttle system; barebones and I'll build it up. The problem I have is that I really don't need windows for much nowadays. I am almost wondering if it is even worth getting a shuttle and maybe I should just not get it. I use windows for: One panoramic photo stitching program that is not available for mac (it is the best i've ever used). I could use PS, but I've noticed I spend too much time and no one else is crazy enough to do it by hand (so it seems). MS Access. I do DB design for work--small desktop apps that help me with specialized projects. Sometimes I'll work on them at home, but not often. Burning DVDs. I can do this on my mac as well, but I get double the power...ok never mind you don't need to hear that. So now I am torn. I was thinking I'd just get a Mac Mini, but with the external on my PB, why would I do that? I'm all conflicted really. Any dual users out there that can offer some advice?
