Ok so here's thing i have been a windows computer user all my life since 95 and have being testing Vista and its ridiculous! So i want to switch apple. I do photograhy, graphic design, web design, college essays and stuff and plus the net and listen to music, but i may also plug my bass into it play around in garageband. Im look at spending about £1200 with the apple NUS student discounts. So my choice is between portability or slightly portable. The MacBook Pro was my first choice the 15" 2.16GHz one at stock details. or Mac Mini (the high end spec one) with the 23" ACD with no matter what wireless keyboard and mouse. with teh 23" i could spend £44 more and get 1GB but is that enough for MacMini and OS X One question is how easy is it put in new RAM in Mac Mini because i know its fairly easy to do on MBP. I like lots of windows up thats why im contenplating the 23" BUt when leopard comes out with spaces will i need it im not sure. I would like to get some feedback on what you think i should do. But please bear in mind im in College not Uni yet so im not away from home and at the college they have one room full of about 100 mac pro'swith 20" ACD's. =] So would it be more sensible to go for a MacBook Pro or the MacMini seen as though im not in uni yet and th college is a 30mins bus drive away. Thank You!
