Ok I think I've finnally got it narrowed down to these 2 machines. eMac, 1.25ghz, 1gb ram, BT, wireless card, super drive, 160gb drive iBook, 1.33ghz, 768gb ram, wireless card, super drive, 80gb drive Both of these machines hit that sweet spot of about $2000-$2200 Canadian. I'm leaning towards the iBook right now just because space is definalty a premium for me but the only real short coming I can see with it is the screen resolution. I know there is a hack for iBooks that allows screen panning to a larger monitor but I'd still need the space to actually keep that monitor. Any thoughts?
