Well not really, but almost. After years of berating my dad, he's finally on the verge of switching. However, there are a few minor concerns that I think a broader audience can help me with: 1) He likes to use MS Money, and I know there have been a million threads about this (all leading to no firm conclusion), I'd like to know what former MS Money users to be the best Mac equivalent. What comes the closest to Money's features and interface? I personally don't use it, so I really need current or former MS Money users to tell me their experiences. 2) The macbook would be ideal for him, but I think he might find the display a little small. He's got a 15" right now, and even though the macbook has a superior display than his older laptop, I think he'll find 13" too small. Since the computer spends most of its time in his office/den, would an external be a good idea? If so, recommend your brand and why. I can't justify an ACD, so at the moment I think a Dell would be nice. Thoughts? 3) He has a back-up drive that's formatted for Windows (naturally), and if he gets a macbook, is there an easy way to wipe the drive to format it for OS X? Now he would obviously transfer data first, but is there any way to make the drive "blank" and then let Time Machine do its thing? Thanks for all your help.
