So, I am a disgruntled PC user, wanting to switch to a Macbook. Not sure what I have in mind yet as I'll make an appointment with a Personal Shopping Assistant when I get ready to buy. However, 2 quick questions: 1) I dont have the money to buy one right now before the Free ipod promotion ends, but will have the money near Christmas. Is Apple known to offer any promotions/discounts/freebies, etc. near the holidays? Or what is their usual schedule of promotions? 2) As I have always been a PC user, I have a boatload of paid, expensive software that is for PC only like 2 Corel suites, Flash/Swish, printer drivers, MS Office, etc. I have heard that a Mac can be partitioned to run Windows as well, so are there any EASY instructions on how to do this, would it be required, etc? Please advise Thanks for any help!
