Hi all! I posted this on another site, but I've started reading this one and thought I'd see what you all think. I'm hoping you all can help me make a decision. I've been contemplating the move to a macbook/pro and reading almost everything I can find for a little while now. There was actually a time when I bought a used g3 ibook (late 2002 w/ 10.3) and used it for a semester in college until the motherboard died. I'm in a weird place. I like some of the design features of the current macbooks and some of the pros. I also like the 15 over the 13 inch, but I could get used to it. I also want to be sure that I can get the same or better performance that I have now. I'm hoping to keep it for more than year or two. Here's what I have now: Desktop: http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/del...-30981395.html I upgraded the RAM to 3 gigs at 800mhz and put in a 8600 gts. It's my powerhouse. Also, it has a 3.4 ghz P4 hyper threaded processor in there. Laptop: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...250963&lang=en Bought it off the shelf with nothing custom under the hood. Now I usually use my computers for video conversion, word processing, mp3 re-encoding, html & other simple coding and other daily computing needs. I have a 360 so gaming isn't a big deal right now. So which one would be best for my needs? Would I get similar/better performance? Thanks! BTW- I grew up on macs. Nothing like the apple 2e or the original mac. I took a break while in college, but grad school will bring me back home. Oh and I know about the possible redesigns. I'm going to wait till tomorrow or even 1 more week to see what happens.
