Well i want a new faster Mac to do Video Editing, Photo, and stuff like that. But i am wondering if i should get a new Laptop or get a desktop. Ones i am looking at: Refurbished iMac 17-inch 1.83GHz Intel Core Duo $1,099 512MB (single SO-DIMM) 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM 160GB Serial ATA hard drive Slot-load 8x double-layer SuperDrive ATI Radeon X1600 graphics with 128MB GDDR3 memory Built-in AirPort Extreme and Bluetooth 2.0 Refurbished MacBook Pro - 2.0GHz Intel Core Duo $1,999 15.4-inch TFT display with 1440x900 resolution 2.0GHz Intel Core Duo with 2MB shared L2 Cache 667MHz frontside bus 1GB (single SO-DIMM) 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM 100GB 5400rpm Serial ATA hard drive Slot-load SuperDrive (DVD±RW/CD-RW) ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 with 256MB GDDR3 memory Dual G5 Powermac 2 ghz $1,699.00 1GHz Frontside bus 1mb L2 cache per core 160GB HD 16X Superdrive Geforce 6600 LE (128MB) I was thinking to things Wait until Parents buy Mac (would be soon) and get nice one and i just upgrade Laptop. Or Upgrade Laptop for portiblity for school and save for desktop later. Last Buy desktop, keep laptop for school for smaller projects, then buy Macbook since its alot faster. What should i do? I need a computer that will be fast for Video and pictures i would do probaly 80% of it at home 20% of laptop at school. So i was thinking desktop then upgrade Laptop to Macbook.
