    Hey everyone! My ThinkPad's sale is pending, and combining that with the $165 I got for Christmas, I'm gonna go back to Macs full time. Problem is, I don't know what to get (new or used doesn't matter). Let me know your thoughts! Thanks!

    A refurbished Mac mini or iMac might be a good place to start.

    I assume the OP has $165 and expects to get $400 for his ThinkPad.

    ...combining that with the $165 I got for xmas...

    So it seems.

    I'm not going to let my retro feelings get him a PowerPC machine. :eek:

    It's getting quite old now unless you have a G5. Even so a Mac mini can toss it around in raw CPU power.
