So school is going to start in about 2 months and I may have enough grant money left over to either buy a Macbook or an iMac. The thing is my usb audio device that I use in conjuction with my mixer is a piece. Right now Im using a PC that I put together awhile ago for recording and mixing. Either way I know Im going to have to get another recording interface. If I stick with my PC DAW then I can go for a pci solution (i.e. the 1212m - 149.99) but if I choose an iMac I would probally have to go with a USB Solution (i.e.the firepod - 399.99). What I would like to know is what you all think about either using my current PC DAW setup and getting a Macbook or getting an iMac and stick with my Lenovo z60t. If I continue to use my PC DAW Ill have to find someway to get the cash so I can finish the build with an Intel C2D e6420. Its a pretty solid machine and gets the job done but something in me wants an iMac. Oh, and please please dont suggest a Macbook Pro. I work with a system administrator and I have had plenty of time with both(including the new SR MBP). Im not interested in one for several various reasons, and we'll just leave it at that ok?
