Hi There, I'm new to this and I have gone back and forth between so many options (i.e. MacBook vs. iMac vs. MacBook Pro vs. MacBook Air) for college. I will be majoring in Pre-Medicine/Pre-Medicine Study and I've customized a MacBook Pro but I also want an iMac for college. I've added everything together and I don't believe I'll be able to afford both. I have a $5,000 limit on everything relating to computers. This is what I'll be mainly doing: 1) Doing Basic Multitasking (i.e. Using iWork, MS Office, iTunes, Mail, Safari) 2) Watching Movies/Television 3) Watching Television Online (I don't know if that has to do with threading or not) 4) Basic Photo Editing/Video Editing 5) Music Creating/Editing I really like to multitask and I could use any and all advice about that and what I'll need. Also, I use a secondary monitor now, and I'd like to do that too. It's very convenient. But I have a generalized list of what I'll want/need and I want your advice/feedback. 1) MacBook Pro ($2600) 2) External Hard Drive ($200) 3) Sleeve & Case ($100) 4) Mouse & Keyboard ($150) 5) MagSafe (An Extra for Convenience) ($100) 6) Speakers ($100) 7) Printer ($300) 8) Software ($250) 9) iMac ($1500) And I've already gone over my limit. Again, any advice and thoughts to what I'll need would be very much appreciated. Thanks in Advance.
