Hi all, I know many have asked this question in the past, and here I am asking it myself after having read through the forums, and still not really knowing what to do. Here's the basic use for either, web surfing wordprocessing, some video editing, photo organizing, and a lot of garageband. Since I'm a composer and I'll be hooking my Roland Fantom X8 into whatever computer I get, Garageband takes the forefront. Also regardless of which one I buy I'm goign to get airport extreme and a bluetooth keyboard & mouse (none of which I own yet.) If I get the mini, I will also need to get a monitor too. Also I'd be upgrading to 512 megs of ram. This would all be done on the EDU discount. Now here's the other problem. I'm planning on moving to England in a year, since I've got work prospects there after I'm done with school. If I were to go with the mini, it might just hang around till a powerbook G5 would come out, hopefully before next january, and then would go to my parents. If I got the iMac though it would be more of a permanent thing, for a few years at least. I'm just worried that it might be a huge pain in the ass to move from the states to England and back. so yeah any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
