I'm thinking of buying a Mac in the future since I'm getting a job soon (I'm in 11th grade right now), and I really need a new computer. I've used Macs before, and they're really nice, plus I hate Windows, and all I really use it for nowadays is gaming and typing stuff up (Linux doesn't generally provide enough support for me). So, here's some questions: 1. First of all, when Apple sells machines though the Education Store, does that include students? It appears that way to me. 2. As for the system I get, this is my largest concern. Depending on how much I can earn (I assume I could make around $100 a week or so, especially during the summer), I'm considering saving for anywhere from the iMac 15" 1Ghz model, which would be $1199 through the school, to the Dual 2Ghz G5 model, which would be $2299 through the school also. See, this is my problem. I wouldn't have a problem getting an Apple loan and paying $50 or so a month (that's around what it would be at a minimum, but I'd probably pay $60-100), but I don't want to get a computer that's going to be "obsolete" very quickly. The G5 series appeals to me, especially the Dual 2Ghz since it has tons of power upgradablity, which I really want, while I can't do nearly as much with even the best iMac G4, which is at 1.25Ghz with a SuperDrive. Any opinions on what I should do would be very helpful...should I buy one, or just wait out for those heavily awaited Dual 3Ghz computers by saving up?
