Hello to all. I'm new here and also to the apple world. I can tell you that i have had about 2 computers. Right now I own a 17 inch HP laptop with an AMD processor. It lags. It does the job, but its starting to lag. Plus I hate windows. Too many updates and it takes forever to update too. No more PC's for me. Plus I have heard friends rave about their macs and how they are so reliable and of course there is the design. I just came to realize that apple products and technology is superior to others. I've seen macbook pros on display at Best Buy and I am impressed with the design. Apple truly does have the most gorgeous computers. When I got my iPhone 4 from Verizon, I loved it. I was in phone heaven. LOL Anyway I just wondered if i could get some advice on what mac i should get. I am a college student and i need a realiable computer. I was thinking of getting of the mac mini because its the cheapest. But i love the iMac design. especially now since they all have quad cores. But then I love the portability of the pro. I don't have a grip of money to spend but i am willing to buy a mac. I see it more as an investment. So if anyone could let me know which is the best option for me I would be much obliged. Thank you all. Apple rules!
