Hello all...great forum here! I have been an avid pc user for years and know Windows very well. I am, however sick and tired of problems with Windows and am going to purchase a MBP 15" laptop. I wanted to get a few ideas from you all as far as a couple of specific questions. I want to wait and get a MBP with a 750gb hard drive. In your best mac opinions, how long might one wait for this drive to be available? Also when is the new operating system going to be available? I believe it's called snow leopard? Last question, do you recommend buying directly through Apple, or the mac mall or even ebay (from a reputable seller)? The apple store seems logical, but more expensive (of course). Applecare is also tempting, but doesn't include accidental damage, which most pc's warranties can cover (if you purchase it). Any suggestinos you could give me as far as making a smooth transition to a mac? I am planning on running parallels with either windows xp or windows 7, but I don't know if parallels will support Windows 7 for awhile. Regardless, any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
