It is getting to the point with these PC viruses, and IE issues and you name it, that I just cant hold onto Windows any longer. I feel that no matter how painfull it will be, I must make the jump. My Sony Vio is almost 5 years old, and needs replacing anyway. If I have to learn a whole new OS like Vista(which I dont hear good things about anyway), I might as well go the MAC route. I've been doing some searching, and would I be better off going with the Imac 17inch, or the MINI. I can go to about 1300 dollars for a new desktop, but if the Mini will suffice, it would be great to save the money. I use my desktop for pictures, and ITunes, and Quickbooks mostly. I dont need to do video editing, or anything like that.
