Well, I have committed to buying a Mac. Just went ahead and signed up for ProCare at the store but plan to buy at Macconnection to get the rebagte and save the tax. Think I am going with the 2.16. I am a pretty basic user now (photos, email, web browsing, Quicken)though look forward to learning new stuff on the Mac. Am I fine with 1 Gig memory or should I upgrade to 2 when I order? Thanks!
