I've been waiting for these Intel Macs for a long time, being an Apple fan, ever since I heard about the switch, actually. Anyway, I recently got my stock report for some Aflac shares I have saved for college, and it totals to around $2000. My parents are going to put some cash in with that, so perhaps I'll have about $2,500 for a new computer for college next fall. My question is two parts: What should I buy? A laptop, or a desktop? I will be using it to edit high resolution photos, but nothing much above that. I only dabble in video, so that would just be a plus. So I know I probably don't need a powerhouse like the Powermac G5, but I am looking at the new Intel iMac. I would love the portability of a laptop, but the price to power ratio is way higher than a desktop, and I never liked the short battery life of any laptop. I'm still open if you think they'll be coming out with cheaper laptops, though. I am really eager to spend this money and get a new iMac. My question is, should I wait? Will Apple release any new desktops anytime soon? And what all are the problems with application pprtability to Intel? Will my Photoshop, Flash, and other Adobe/Macromedia apps work? Thanks for any advice!
