I have decided to switch to Mac (yay!!). I have a four month old laptop on Windows that I am going to sell for (hopefully) $1700-2000 (lots of extras). It's very powerful, so I think I can get a good price on eBay; I will set a reserve price to ensure I don't get less than I want. Now, I am a 17 year old and yes, this sounds silly, but my parents think I am making a bad decision and basically won't let me sell my laptop that I bought myself. Personally, I think I am going to get a more powerful computer, but my parents fail to see that while I have a good PC, it is possible to get something better. My mother thinks my computer is God...she wants it very badly (but won't buy it, conveniently); note they are currently on a 5 year old Dell and would think my graphing calculator is better. BTW, here is what I am switching to: iMac G5 17" 1.8GHz SuperDrive Bluetooth Module + Apple Wireless Keyboard & Mouse + Mac OS X - U.S. 1GB DDR400 SDRAM - 2 DIMMs 160GB Serial ATA drive SuperDrive (DVD-R/CD-RW) AirPort Extreme Card My current computer has an 80 GB HD, no DVD burner, no bluetooth, and is only 15.4". Because I want the portability of a laptop, in a few months, when I get the money scraped together, I plan on buying: iBook 12" 1.2GHz Combo AirPort Extreme Card 30GB Ultra ATA drive Combo drive (DVD-ROM/CD-RW) 768MB DDR266 SDRAM (256MB built-in & 512MB SO-DIMM) This will just be for basic computing needs on the road (Internet, watching videos, word processing, etc.). Now, I need help convincing my parents (I feel stupid saying this) into letting me sell MY laptop so I can get my iMac!! What can you Mac experts say that I can't put into words except that it's "better" and "I want it". THANKS!
