Today, while I was recording/mixing/editing my guitar on my PC, then it crashed. I lost all my data I had been working on. Not only that, I had to get on the line with HP and Microsoft to fix the problem. Anyway, I would turn it on and it would tell me to enter safe mode, then I would and it kept crashing and wanting safe mode again, it was an endless loop of Windows Hell. I am going to get a Mac now. I am 14, so I don't get money as much as an adult would because, well, I don't have a job. I had a job, but had to quit because school started back. I now have roughly $284. Almost $300. I don't want to get a PPC Mac, because I want compatibility of Snow Leopard. But it looks like that's my option. I need one with at least 1GB RAM and around 100GB Hard Drive to store GarageBand Recordings, school stuff, iTunes, etc. Bottom Line: I could get an iBook or PowerBook, or I could wait and get a Mac Mini, or wait a long time and get a MacBook. Suggestions?
