My trusty iBook G4 is about to bite the dust and it is time for a new computer. I am a student and I need all the basics plus I like to dabble on the power-user side. I mess around a bit with video/photo editing. I am looking to spend around $1500 The two options I was considering were either getting a mid-end macbook. Or getting a low end iMac and a very cheap PC laptop. I pretty much need a laptop for school and I also study abroad so the few times I go home I take my computer with me, but I really want to have the larger screen that comes with the iMac plus the addittional power would be nice. If i got the pc laptop I would want to spend about $400 and only use it for word processing, basic internet, and when I traveled. What do you reccommend?
