Hey people, just before i start great forum by the way anyhoo Recently i obtained the grades i needed to attend chester university in the uk and promised myself i would purchase a new computer, i've always been a PC user but am sick of them and want a mac. I primarily was going to wait until september to see what the update for the powerbooks bought however recently ive been very attracted by the G5 iMacs as they boast higher performance for same price. my question was really how important do u think portability would be at university? do i really need a laptop or can i get away with a desktop? mmh wish i knew the updates for the powerbook in sept. apologies for the long post.
