Hello, I'm a 20 year old student from So Cal. I don't know that much about Macs, all I know is that I NEED to switch. I consider myself an advanced PC user and built the computer I use now. I have been wanting to switch for a while now, but the past couple have days have pushed me into overdrive. I am SICK of Windows. It's not fun to use the computer anymore..it almost feels like a chore. I almost felt like crying the other day. All I wanted to do was send a quick email to a friend and head out the door. Turned on the computer and all this crap started to pop up, new hardware this, blah blah that, ugh. And I consider my self advanced I used to say I wanted to "buy" a Mac, but now it's "invest" b/c I'm sick of Billy. I have a few n00b questions(sorry for the long intro ): 1) I kinda know that "Tiger" will be coming out very soon, so I should at least wait until that comes out, right? 2) I'd like to get a laptop. Are new laptops do out soon?(I heard they might, I don't want to buy one now and have the new version come out a week later) 3)Looking for the laptop to be my main computer. I do a lot of video, audio, creative work(web, music, video). Should I look at getting an iBook or PowerBook? Any config. suggestions? 4)I'm only 20, I don't have $2000 to drop, any suggestions on some good places to buy/get financing at?(as far as I know I have "no credit established") Any other knowledge or info you can give me would be much appreciated. Thanks!
