i have been a pc user for about 10 years. i have no beef agains bill gates or microsoft because im one of the smarter users that know what they are doing so i dont get viruses and very little if no spyware. i kind of want to switch to the Mac for a few reasons. one i am majoring in IT and would like to be familiar with both platforms, two osx just looks beautiful and is easy to use from my experiences at apple stores, and three im bored with widows. i was wondering if i should buy the 17 in imac or the mini with a dell 20 in display. the only problem i have against the mini is that it doesnt come with a keyboard or mouse. im currently using a laptop so i dont have an extra keyboard but i do have a mouse. also the mini is very limited on usb ports. do you guys recomend that i buy the 17 in imac or the mini? will be probably looking to invest in a new machine around spring or summer. thank you for responding.
