In the end I will end up with a something better than what my first Mac in 8 years will be when I buy it. Right now, all I want to do is: 1. Become familiar with mac. 2. Use iLife - hopefully a LOT. ( probably no or little HD editing in iMovie ) 3. Download and learn a DJ program called megaseg. I DJ on a pc laptop now, and even still use CD players. If all goes well, in 6 - 8 months I will buy a much better mac. I could easily see me buying a mini, or the 13" pro. Thing is, I don't know whether I can edit on that small of a screen, but I can DJ on that size if need be. I haven't touched a mac in about 8 years so I am quite uneducated. Thoughts?
