I am forced to but a new computer. My Cube power source is dying . I only do this buying thing about every 9 years, and always a Mac. I can't get DSL where I live unless I go 3G or satellite, and I don't want to do either. Keep in mind that a 450 mhz Mac on dial up has actually done most all I wanted to do, but not always. For those times I like the thought of being able to carry a laptop into a fast food place, book store, or the local branch library, and get WIFI, and I would like to be able to do Skype and talk to my grandchildren on it. This approach would seem favor a laptop, but which one? I know a Macbook could do what I want, and need. I aim to keep this a long time, but being almost 73 I'm not sure what a long time for me is, but I know I want to be happy with what I get, and that is more important than the money. I have the money, but I am frugal at heart; can't help it. I look at the 13" Macbook pro and I think that would do it, but I look at the 15" and I think maybe 3 years from now I would be happier if I went that way? what to do? Any suggestions appreciated.
