Well it wouldnt really officially be my first Mac, because about a year ago I had an ibook g4 for a couple months. But I no longer have that. But Im now in market to buy a new home computer for my office. Im considering a Mac, but here is my only problem. I dont want a computer that already comes with a monitor, the way my offiice is setup I use my 46" Sony LCD tv as my tv and computer monitor (actually is pretty cool setup)... so I would still want to do this with my new computer, but I notice all the mac's come with monitors or build into the monitor... are there any that you can buy just the "computer" also, my tv has a monitor hookup (obviously, thats how I have it working now), but I notice most newer computers only use DVI hookups, my tv doesnt have DVI, but does have HDMI and regular monitor hookup slot... is there a way I can still it it to work?
