My situation: 1-I've never owned an apple before. 2-I've dicided to move from PC to MAC! 3-I've chosen the worst time to do that! 4-I use basically Office, internet and some video/photo editing. 5-I've dicided to get a PB 15'' (probably one imac would fit for me but I want all whistles and bells!!!) 5-I'm moving out USA on late Feb so I need to get it by the end of January!!! So I need some help: With all this rumors around intel based PB it seems that I will not be able to get one on January but probably a intel/ibook... I have 2 options: get a PB or get the possible early released intel/ibook. So basically my questions: 1- For my needs: What is the best option: intel/imac or IBM/PB?? 2-As a PC user usually a PClap lasts around 4 years on my hand (I had 3 in the last 12 years) and could last even longer as my needs are pretty basic... How long should a PB 15'' last considering this transition era? How long should it run a MAC OS and basic softwares confortably??? LOOK: I really don't have time and energy to keep changing machines every other year! I'm a just avarege Joe! But, I really need a Lap for my work... Thank you!!!
