My parents Dell is starting to slow down and I need a new system. I need to have a video editor, sound editor, internet browser, and a word processor all thru at once with no slow down. Im thinking about the 20-inch: 2GHz Intel. I need it to last 4 years(just an average) see Im in college so I would also use it for school work. I would max it out with 2GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM, 2GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM hard drive and the ATI Radeon X1600/256MB. Is this going to get me thru the years? The videos I make are up at myspace.com/dirtyroadstudios but I plan on making longer and larger videos. How is Apples word processor or would I need to get Microsoft? I need to make DVDs and CDs is all that on the system or do I need to get programs? I want to be able to make some cool DVDs with nice menus. Last thing whats the difference between AirPort Express Base Station with AirTunes and the AirPort Extreme Base Station (with modem and antenna port)? I have a DSL connection in the other room so I just need basic wireless that will let my hook up the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo Revolution when its released. I get the student discount and Im paying with a credit card so I have a $2000 limit. Thanks for all the help I cant wait to get my hands on a MAC. If this system will not make the four years could you help me with something that could? I also been looking at Sony.
