Well, my first computers 20 years ago were macs, and I loved them all. Then my spouse was and is a Windows person so I've been on the dark side. Time to come back. I've been looking at these forums for weeks and have seen most of the threads on this, but wanted people's thoughts: I'm buying a laptop to use wirelessly in my house to surf the web, write documents, and other basic stuff. However, I'm also in a band and plan to use GarageBand alot, so planned to upgrade my ibook's RAM to at least 512 and HD to 60GB. Then I realized that despite having a DVD burner on my Windows desktop, and a whole slew of home movies on DV, I have no DVD movie burning software, which would cost around $100-$150. So now I've decided I need a Superdriive, which puts me at getting a 14" ibook with upgreaded RAM for roughly $1575. To me, it makes sense - especially with 10% discounts likely tomorrow - to just make the jump to a 12" PB. Updated recently, a little faster, bigger HD, better graphics card. Does this make sense to other people, because I've now gone from a $1200 purchase to a $1700 (before discount) purchase and am hoping someone can help rationalize my indulgence. Thanks!
