After a long time as a PC user and new iPod touch owner, I am considering switching to Mac. I need some advice on buying an entry level machine to see if I could really be happy with a Mac before dropping a lot of cash down on more robust system. Here's a little background on my computing use. I do most of the normal things that every computer owner does (word processing, internet usage, digital media, etc). My hobbies that go beyond normal usage include gaming, software development (independent games), music/graphic creation. I currently have a powerful PC which I built that handles the gaming and software development well, but not so much with the music/graphics/media creation stuff. I would basically like to spend as little money as possible but still get a taste of what its like to use a Mac under normal performance circumstances. I have no preference regarding desktops or laptops. What would you recommend to me considering my situation? Thanks in advance.
