ok i'm so unsure of what to buy. I'm a college student and I need a computer for Photoshop, FCP 4, Dreamweaver MX and the iLife apps and I'll probably be getting into musical recording with it, since garageband can do it and I play the guitar. I will be doing a lot of video work and web stuff (just beginning) but I really am interested and want to make professional business websites. I also want to be able to play Halo( extreme fan who wants to play online and doesn't have an xbox in his dormroom), I know there are some gamers round here, so what is the best option should I look for? My dad has got 17 inch titanium powerbook, which is just awesome. I have looked at the apple website for refurbished computers and have found some deals. But I'm not sure I'll be usung the superdrive to write burn dvd's, but you never know. I want this computer to last me the next two years for college. I'm split between getting a 15 inch pbook for all the video work and editing, web stuff and the typical web surfing and ilife apps. I can't make up mind with a 15 pb, superdrive emac, or 15 or 17 inch iMac. Portability would be nice for taking it home and to places but the emac and imac screens are great. So i guess it comes down to processor power for video, web creation, halo gaming(possibly). Hmmmmmmmm. Your input would be greatly appreciated as I want this computer to last me a few years. I would also be open to buying an external HD. Which brings up another point of where can I customize an apple computer so I could pick the certain graphics/gaming chip, HD, and other essential stuff. I have looked over this site all day today and can't really put my finger on what is best. Another thing: how important is G4 processor speed, like when it reads G4 550? I assume higher is better. But what is best for what I need it for? Thanks again!!!!!
