Hey all - I'm looking to buy a Mac, but I'm unsure of what my purchase needs to be. I appreciate your input. I'm coming from the Windows world, so bear with me... Originally, I was debating between the MB and the MBP. But, because of lack of Firewire and ExpressCard, i'm pretty sure on the MBP. I am looking to do some video editing, photos, some kids games, music and web development. Also, school papers and the like. My other question is the MacRumors buying guide. It states to only buy if you really need it. It looks like Apple may be releasing the next gens within the next 30 days or so. Am I better of waiting? Does Apple have any sort of guarantee if you buy a laptop and they release a new one like a week later? How about OSX? What version are they currently at and is there a new one coming out soon? Also, is it better to load up the memory and hard drive from Apple or is better to order it with the minimum and do 3rd party upgrades? I don't want to upgrade much - mainly just to the 4GB RAM and possibly a bigger HD. 250 should be sufficient but you never know... Finally, what is everyone's take on the Apple Service plan? Is it worth the money?! I appreciate your comments! Lookin' forward to joining the club!
