So for the last 5 months Ive been reading the forums on MR trying to figure out if a MAC is for me. My friends make fun because I am so indecisive on what I want. Ive gone back and forth for the last 3 months. Ive decided that the best way to come to a conclusion would be to ask you guys. Ill give you a little background. Im a college student (business major) Im just going to be using my computer for basic apps like Instant messaging, internet, music, & photos (no editing just storing). Ive been going back and forth with a laptop and desktop. Desktop for power and Laptop for portability. I figured a laptop would be best for group work and projects I might occur at my future school. Im a little worried on the Intel switch. Which complicates things a tad. I want a computer that will last me for 3 years. However Ive figured I could get a pb and just sell that around the time Intel rev b's come out and decide on a ibook or another pb. Would it be better that way or if i get an ibook and then sell that and get another portable later down the road. I cant really afford anything more than 1500. Is this a good idea or a great idea? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
