Hello all: I'm a longtime PC user that's considering getting his first Mac. As a owner of numerous iPod's I've been long thinking about getting a Mac. The fact that I can now dual boot with Parallels/Bootcamp/VMWare makes the purchase completely risk-free. If I end up hating OSX (which I doubt), then I'm left with one hell of a sexy PC. The second driver for my purchase was a discussion I had with an acquaintance where he told me about (and later showed me) Delicious Library. I absolutely HAVE to have that application. As the owner of well over a thousand DVD's, HD-DVD's etc., and hundreds of CD's that application looks like an absolute godsend. I initially considered a Mac Mini but the value just doesn't seem there when compared with the other Apple offerings. In comes my third driver: I recently purchased a true-HD Canon HV10 camcorder and am very, very interested in learning Final Cut Express HD (perhaps even the full studio some day---I have some experience in Premier). I currently have a Dell 2407FP monitor and love it. I have an older Dell laptop that could stand to be replaced but portability isn't all that big of an issue to me. I'm considering an iMac and while IMO it seems to clearly be the best value (really like the 7600 videocard option) but with the 2407 I can't help but think it's completely redundant (already have a DVI/USB KVM not to mention the 2407). So logically that would lead me to a mac pro but that seems extreme for a first-timer and for my needs not to mention another big tower under the desk. But it does have a clear path right into Final Cut Studio. What route should I go experts? I'm getting my masters degree so I can use an edu discount. Any and all advice is sincerely appreciated! Edit: Yes I know to wait until after the Mac conference....I've learned that much already!
