I'm actually using my Husband's account to ask this since he's supposedly busy at work today. But I see he's posted here....hmmm!?! (to skip straight to question, read last paragraph) Anyway, he's been pushing me to "try Mac" for a while. Ocassionally I will browse a page or two on his Mac Mini and it didn't seem as foreign as I thought it would. I've seen him use iMovie, which I'm very jealous of (lots of video of our 9 mo old), and iWeb. It seems to have so many great apps that act much more refined. I love the almost non existant (but still there) virus threat. So, I'm willing to give it all a try. This is my dilema, I have been spoiled with a 17" screen on my current Laptop which is on a laptop cart that I can move all over the house. I know we can't afford a 17" Macbook Pro and honestly most likely not even the 15". I have looked at the 13" screens in the Apple store and it seems useable. There are a few pages I go to regularly I can see will require some extra scrolling. I'm just paranoid that if I get a 13" I'm going to freak after a few days because of my missing screen real estate. The question is, of the Apple 13" - 15" Notebooks with Intel chips, where will my best value be? I will be buying used. I want something that will last a couple years (even if I have to put some memory in it), but all I really do is browse the internet (lots of FLASH & You Tube), email, basic photo editing, Open Office, etc. I'm not into photoshop or any other specialized programs. Thanks PS. I got his permission to do this!
