I don't own a Mac, but I am getting one in the next month or so. I wanted to get a MacBook Pro because I want to start designing websites using a Mac. However, I see the mini now comes with the Intel chip. As for my experience with a Mac, I would say I'm a borderline novice to imtermmediate user of Macs. Therefore, cost and power factor into this as well as functionality. My question is, would I best be served in getting a mini to learn my way around and get some basic experience and then someday move up the scale on equipment, or just go ahead and get the MacBook Pro?
