In my opinion, if you don't NEED a computer right now, do not buy an Intel Mac until Leapord. Why? I believe Intel on Tiger is half ***ed. It is almost like a bandaid fix to get it on Intel. In my opinion the full functionality of Intel on Mac will be realized with Leopard since that will be the first OS actually designed for Intel. Even bootcamp is now beta but a final reliable build will be delivered with Leopard. Plus by buying a machine with Leapord preinstalled you will not be getting a rev. A Intel Mac. In fact I would almost recommend getting a PowerPC Mac (new or used) until Leopard comes out but right now the best option is still to not buy any Mac. So if you have the patience and what you need to get by until then (not what you WANT), hold your wallets.
