New to the forums and I have a few questions. I've been thinking about switching to Mac for a long time now, but never knew what to go for. I currently have a Toshiba Satellite A35 laptop which has failed me way too many times, and obviously Windows XP is not helping the situation. I want to sell that on eBay and hopefully get some good money. I saw they sell for a good amount and mine is in great condition. What I would like is a system that can handle school work, everyday internet access, iTunes, photos, and most importantly some demanding video editing, not too demanding, but right in the middle. On my Windows I was editing with Adobe Premiere Elements, not sure what the equivalent would be on a Mac, I'm assuming Final Cut or something. Obviously I would like something that can handle that smoothly without slowing up on me. For instance sometimes I like to have iTunes, my video editing software, and some other things running at the same time, just so I can listen to a song that will be used in the movie. At the time I really can't justify spending $1500+ on a brand new Mac even after selling my Toshiba, that is why I was looking at some older systems. What would be some realistic specs on an iBook for what I want? Also, what do you think of buying items like this off of eBay? I guess for a basis I'll list the specs of my Toshiba. 60gb Hard Drive 768mb RAM Pentium 4 2.3ghz Wireless internal modem CD-RW/DVD-ROM With that it ran OK, could have been better, but it got the job done. Although editing would slow it down a bit, it was a lot worse before I had installed the new RAM. I could have maxed it at 2gb, but never bothered. Anyway, thanks for your help in advance and if I forgot something just ask.
