I've always admire Apple products and OS X but where I live no one and I mean no one has anything that Apple except iPods. So its hard for me to jump head first into a new computer with an unknown operating system. Also the stark price difference has kept me back. My main problem now is that I have two computers a HP dv5t 15" with a 9600GT, 2.53Ghz. I also have a 9" acer aspire one. I'll be at home in 2 months and then there for another 4 while I finish junior college and then I'll be headed to a new college. I need to have a laptop because I'm always traveling around. I'm not using my laptop in tight space where a small screen is really necessary, just travel around. Now my first thought was a Macbook Pro 15" because of my love for TF2 which is gonna require the 9600GT and also because I use my laptop a lot of a desk so the extra inches can be helpful. Also I'm scared to dip below a 2.4 ghz processor since I'm using a 2.53 right now. If I do this then I have to sell both of my current laptops for sure. I've considered the new mac mini. It is the cheapest option to get a machine with mac osx and I already have a 20" monitor. But then I have a laptop that is more powerful than my desktop. Basically I'm confused about how to get into macs without leaving me underpowered or having too many computers. I check the used market a lot but it seems like you can't get a good enough deal to make it worthwhile.
