I am considering purchasing a new imac. I currently have a base level macbook that I use for everything (no desktop). I know that Apple currently has a great student promotion that they do annually, and it ends tonight. I plan on using either the Imac or my macbook to download/add lots of Highdef dvd home movies (made from a home camera) to. My questions are: 1.Is this normally Apples best annual sale, or am I better off going refurb and configuring the computer the way I want it? 2. Would it be stressing out my macbook to load lots of movies ( i can send them to an external hard drive, and don't plan to do much editing initially. Thanks a bunch, I have used this forum a fair bit in the past, and never needed to register due to the excellent quality of information here. Glad I did though.
