This is not a newbie thread. It's simply out of pure interest asking, if you were to be given a free Mac, which would you pick? I'm considering not one you would sell, one you were to keep. If not, don't answer please. For example, I rate very much in appearance, but also a bit in features. I'd either get a Mac Pro or a Mac Mini with a Cinema Display. They look so cool. To me, specs mean nearly nothing, since I'd be well off with a low end Mac Mini with 1 GB RAM. Please consider what you need + want. Don't just wish for a Mac Pro or MBP because they are the most expensive. Just think (different) about it for a minute before posting.
