hey! ive been considering getting a mac for a while and as my 16th birthday is in 3 weeks im pretty sure im getting one!! yes!! ive played aroundt with my friend on my soccer teams iMac and loved it, but i really cant decide what i want!! i keep changing my mind between the MBP or the mac mini, i do this b.c im going to be using a 37 inch vizio hdtv in my bedroom asthe monitor so i can lay on my bed and use the compy instead of hunching over and stuff, so i was going to go with the mini, but then i thought what about all the trips i go on! i want a laptop! so i look and thought hummm i play games (but im not a hardcore gamer Psh! ha i play games like rollercoaster tycoon, flight/ train simulation games, stratigy games stuff like that not and big games....) so the MBP sounds good but i have a few questions about it all!! 1) could i use the MBP shut and us the tv as my monitor without having the mbps screen turned on? can i keep it turned on 24/7 without any damage being done to it? 2) is their any sort of keyboard that has a track pad or mouse built into it so i dont have to have a seperate 0ne? 3) mac mini, does anyone have one that can tell me about it? b.c if i do go with the mini i just want some pros and cons about all aspects! 4)same with the Mac Book Pro, some one who owns one tell me about it! 5) oh yea and could anyone tell me about the difference between the entrylevel MBP and the mid range MBP the 15.4 screen ones? besides the price! haha tthanks a bunch!!!!
