Sorry for this thread kind of addressing a dozen ideas at once, but I really wanted to get your opinions on this... dilemma, and "other" tech discussion sites can't handle Apple-related discussions because they can't get past that people would buy from Apple( long story, different time and place). So here's my question or concern or whatever it is: I'm looking at the iPhone and I like it( minus the lack of 3G which is, in my humble opinion, a bit of a slap in the face), but I also like the Macbook. This might be because I saw the Macbook Air and appreciated what an affordable little powerhouse the Macbook really was, but that's for another subject. On the OTHER hand, maybe I should just settle down proverbially and get a desktop in the form of an iMac( after much more waiting than the other two options would entail), a possible option that I only just accepted as that( possible) after seeing how fast the thing booted up at my new job at my community college. Yikes, so I'm looking at a ton of options, in my opinion: An iMac, a Macbook, or an iPhone. I'm sure I'm not giving enough information to let anyone really help me, so if you still don't know what the heck I'm looking for, read on( and thanks for bearing with me!): I have my laptop with me all the time, but it's a big heavy Thinkpad and, while it's powerful, I'd like to bring a small laptop with me instead of that one for short trips where I'll just need to type some stuff up and browse the web occasionally. That said, maybe the iPhone would be better in addition to my Thinkpad because I'll be able to browse the web more easily( this ease of use being the trade off for not being able to type very much). Or, alternatively, I could get an iMac and enjoy the simplicity of it on my desktop. That faster boot-up was really impacting, for some reason. Any suggestions? I'd be much more inclined to get an iPhone if it had 3G built in, but if it's the best thing since sliced bread even WITHOUT it, then I can't really argue with that. The Macbook would be incredibly appealing if it booted up in under a minute without any tweaking, but I'd like to hear from anyone who got an iMac and felt, after buying it, that it was just the be-all end-all computer for them. Phew! I'm grateful for your just READING that entire thing, I don't know what to say about getting responses, haha.
