Hey there Right, I've got an ibook (G3 600Mhz) and the HD has died, so I'm looking for a new computer to buy. I'm not bothered by laptops/portability so a desktop is fine. However, I'm being swayed by Dell and the bastard child of Bill. For £600 I can get a Dimension 3000 Dell: 3Ghz P4 with 1Gb Ram, 160Gb HD, Combo drive, Integrated Intel® Extreme Graphics cards, and a 19" Ultrasharp Dell flat panel monitor. Or with Apple, I could get a mac mini, upgrade the ram, and perhaps get a similar monitor. To be honest, I wasn't too impressed with Tiger compared to Panther on my ibook (okay, maybe because it's an old mac). I did love my ibook for what it could do, but now it's about getting the best for my cash. The software I need to use at med school is compatible with either PC/Mac, so at the end of the day, what am I going to be happy with? For what I need to do, I think either a pc or a mac is going to be okay, it comes down to personal preference. I'm thinking, get the dell, wait for the new mactel machines next year and then switch back. Sorry if I'm rambling. It was only an hour ago, while looking for news on the mac mini updates that I stumbled onto the dell website. Does anybody have any opinions either way? Thanks!
