Go to the apple store. Take the leap. Its well worth it. They even sell macs at best buy now. Go on in and give one a whirl. Once you have mac you never go back.

Thats a great idea abba. My daughter bought a 2 year old iMac for $400 on craigslist. Only problem is if you plan on paying by credit card.

i truly appreciate the advice everybody!

i posted the same thread on philzone to get maximum responses..

seems like the majority of folks say invest in the macbook...price is my only deterrent right now. i have a 6 year old dell inspiron laptop and it runs pretty well considering its age..a little slow...the biggest bummer is the severely messed up audio output jack, and i keep all my music on externals with a system ran through the laptop for sound...

maybe i will do as someone mentioned and wait til back to school sales, should easily have the coin by then assuming i take it easy during the summer shows...must though, got that westie on my mind

Search around on craigslist for a macbook just to get an idea. Its not a bad option.
