hello everyone...ive been looking over the forums for awhile and as my user name suggest i cant wait to switch. i will get to the point and ask a few questions before i buy...... 1. what is up with all the threads about buying now or waiting? if you need it buy it now...if you can wait then wait. 2. i think the macbook pro will be updated soon and the macbook be wont until septemberish... will do the promo for back to school ipod macbook combo not wit the pros...which i plan on getting unless the pro will be 13inch. 3. if macs dont get viruses...why are there softwares? also, if i was to use bootcamp/parallel...is it possible to get a viruses on the pc partion of my laptop? and if so, will my laptop be affected and how would i get rid of it? 4. will "Time Mechine" and "Finder" find everything? i cant hide certain files so others cant find/retrive? is there a way to password protect your files? 5. (non apple related question but...) i have this media player which i also use as my external hard drive... http://www.inoi.com/English/HV355.asp can anyone recommend a 1TB drive for me to install into this...is it possible? is it hard to do? thanks for everyone's help and sorry for the long post.
