Read this if you want, but I have decided to get either mbp or imac, which should i get? Should I sell my hp dv6000t laptop and buy the mbp? Or keep the vista machine and buy an additional imac.?? So I just have a HP dv6000t laptop, 250gb external hard drive, apple keyboard and logitech mx510 mouse. I'm looking to get into the mac world (finally)! Don't have a ton of cash for the purchase though. I'd like to get a desktop mac since I already have a laptop. The specs on the HP are pretty good: 2ghz core 2 duo, 1.5gb ram, nvidia go 7400, 120gb hard drive. So I'd like a desktop mac that is better than this laptop, or else kinda pointless to get I think, although obviously osx is a huge plus! I was looking on ebay for a mac mini or possibly a Powermac G5. How would those compare these days? Obviously, the powermac is bigger. Would it even be worth it though to get a dual g5 when intel is obviously the mac processor today? I've never been a fan of the imac, though they look great. Just don't really like the idea of when it is time to upgrade computers, throwing away a great working monitor in the process. Thoughts?!?
