Well my windows computer has crapped out on me today and after wanting a Mac for so long I am finally jumping in. Hoping the very knowledgeable community here will give me some advice. I am going to be using my computer for basic general things for the most part. Things like downloading and storing music and photos and regular browsing. But im also looking to start some Forex or stock trading in my spare time. Here is the setup I am likely going with: 2.5 Ghz Mac Mini 2.5 Ghz from B&H Photo - $763 http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/812531-REG/Apple_MC816LL_A_Mac_mini_Desktop_Computer.html 3 years AppleCare for $52 and Parallels 7 for Free. I also will be purchasing 2 new monitors which ive chosen the Asus VE258Q because of good reviews and great price at Newegg. $199 each http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236123 8gb Crucial 1333mhz memory (CT2KIT51264BC1339) from Amazon for $35 Everywhere has free shipping so I am trying to take advantage of that and no taxes to save the most money. All input is appreciated.... Good or bad!
