I have a relatively new (bought Dec. '01) 1.9 GHz P4 Dell Dimension 8200. I also have a '99 350 MHz B&W G3. I'll be heading off to college in the fall, and I'll be taking the Dell on-campus with me. I love Macs, but the Dell just beats the crap out of my old G3 and it's good to have both platforms available. I've also been keeping my ear to the ground for news on laptop advancements so I can nab one this fall or later. My question is, if I bought an iBook, what exactly would I need to keep a healthy relationship between it and my Dell? I'd like to be able to network the two, but some convenient way of file transfer might be sufficient. I'd rather not have to email files to myself and download them on the other machine, and burning lots of CDs for transfer might get excessively expensive. I've heard of Dave; would that work well? What other hardware/software would I require? Would it be more reasonable to just go with a PC laptop (despite my Mac bias)? Any advice would be appreciated.
