Hi I've read quite a few of the threads here, but I thought I'd post my own, seeing as I'm still quite unsure about a few things. I need to get a new computer. It must be a laptop, and it must allow me to do video editing and photoshop. I would also quite like to play a windows game, Armed Assault, but that's not vital. The videos I'll be making will be wildlife films, so I want them to be a little higher quality than family movies. Probably the semi-proffesional bracket. I'm not interested in HD right now. One of the things I'm unsure about is the graphics card. I won't be using much 3D (apart from maybe a few games if i can, but they won't be deciding factor). I'll be doing a bit of graphic design in photoshop, making illustrated stories, graphic novels, comics etc. I'm looking at apple because I've currently got an iMac G3 and have enjoyed using it. Also I have a lot of apps that I could use on a new mac, whereas with windows I'd have to get a bunch of new software. My external harddrive is also formatted with mac and doesn't seem to work with windows, and there's a lot of stuff on there. The HDD is 7200rpm so is good for video editing. I was dead set on a mid range Macbook Pro 15" 2.5GHz, but I've also started to look at the upper range Macbook 13" 2.4 GHz. The only severe difference i noticed was the graphics card and a big price drop. Which might not be that important unless I want to play games. (I'm not concerned about screen size) I've also looked at some windows equivalents Dell m1530, Rock Pegasus 670, Mesh GX600 and some HP models (although their website is terrible). So really, i'm swamped with options and I was hoping to get some help with the mac side of things. Many thanks.
