Hi, I've been thinking about switching to a mac from my 4 year old desktop PC for a while and have just about saved up enough pennies to afford it (hurrah!). A few questions before I take the plunge though. 1. I'm a student in the UK and need a fair bit of portability, so looking at either the MB or MBP. I want something that will handle photoshop easily and quickly... am I right in thinking that the graphics card on the MB will be fine for this (despite, it seems, being the subject of much mockery)? Would an extra 2 gigs of RAM help? 2. Being used to a big (albeit ancient) CRT monitor, will it drive me crazy using a 13" screen on the MB? In fact, this was the main reason that I was considering the MBP over the MB. Bearing in mind the huge price difference between the two, would it make more sense to get a screen like this http://accessories.euro.dell.com/sn...y_id=6198&cs=ukdhs1&first=true&l=en&sku=88221 to go with a MB instead? Any other recommendations for suitable screens other than the seemingly pretty expensive cinema displays. 3. If I buy now, will it be easy enough to upgrade to Leopard without having to reformat etc (as has been my past experience with PCs)? 4. .mac account - do I need it, and why? 5. Anything else I should know? Thanks for any help... I'm sure the answers to all these questions are hidden somewhere in the site, but procrastinating over which mac to buy is taking precious time away from exam revision!
