Sorry if this is rambling... I have lots of options, need some feedback. Here is the situation... I just decommissioned my PPC G5 that I used for editing video and VFX as a freelancer. I now have a full time gig with access to Intel based PowerMac gear at work. Mostly at home I just do light computing. So, I need a new computer, right? Also... my wife has a 15" MacBook Pro (2.16 GHz, 1 GB RAM) that she thinks is the nicest computer she has ever owned. Mostly her needs are for very light computing as well, but she want's to learn AutoCAD (running on Parallels) at home, and her system seems a little under powered for this. I could add more RAM and that might help. I have a 23" Cinema Display she can use for better viewing. We also have an Airport Extreme Base Station and a 1 TB Lacie drive that we network off the Airport for our iTunes music library. So, right now I am using her computer (dual login) and enjoying the mobile aspect. But we need to get a second machine. We have options, too many of them. I have considered getting myself a new iMac, a MacBook Pro, and AirBook, I have considered getting a Mac Mini, getting a Mac Mini Server and a AirBook. I have considered using the MacBook Pro we already own and getting my wife a new MacBookPro, or an iMac, but I think she might miss the mobile aspect. She says she doesn't care, I should make the decision. We also want to be able to add speakers to our kitchen for AirTunes, but we don't want to have to use a laptop to control them, might want to see if an iPod Touch can share a library and go that route, not sure if that works. I have also considered hosting my own email with the mini server, getting a static IP address and canceling my hosting services. We also thought about getting a Mini and using it as a media server connected to a HDMI tv. OPTIONS!!!! So, I am not made of money... would like someones advice. Thanks in advance, Crazy with Options.
