My birthday is coming up in 15 days and I am going to be getting a mac. I have a windows xp desktop at the moment and I am looking to get a mac. Should I get a notebook or a desktop machine? My family travels frequently and for 2 weeks at a time normally. I just need a reliable machine which doesn't break down/ crash all the time and also doesn't get many viruses. Also I take a lot of pictures and I like to edit them and I hear macs have awesome photo editing software.
