Hey people, I'm interested in purchasing my first Apple product(actually, it's my first computer ever) and need a little advice to make my final decision. My main tasks for whatever I purchase will be for email, listening & watching music/movies, pictures, word processing and stuff like that, I'm not into gaming. I'll be teaching my mom & myself how to use the system. I'm might start graduate school in the fall so maybe I'll need portability. I really wanted a large screen but I'm not interested in the mbp..too expensive. I contacted apple and have a new ($949 tax or applecare not included)MacBook, 13-inch in my saved cart. There is also the refurb'd Macbook on the website at 849 1gb...hmmm. I was also thinking of going with a Refurb'd($999 tax or applecare not included) iMac 20 inch 2.4/250/1gb. I've seen how to upgrade memory so I'd do that myself & I'd buy applecare elsewhere also) Questions to you: -What would be my best bet between these 3 computers? -What things should I be concerned about in reference to these options? -If I buy my computer in Delaware would it be tax free for me eventhough I live in NJ? -Will my Blackberry curve work with either computer? -Can you keep in mind that cost is a concern? I'd prefer to not go over 1100 (including tax) -Feel free to throw in any other advice that'd be helpful to me. Thanks for reading!
