Ironically (or perhaps not), as I'm talking of replacing my tired old dinosaur, my wife has simply had it with her little Dell lappie and is talking of getting a MacBook Air...wow! In one stroke we might both go Mac.
Now if I can only find a way to keep the kids off my new Mac.
On a side note, it did occur to me I could get an iMac, use it for a year or two, and then go Mac Pro for myself; giving the iMac for my kids. They're 5 & 7 now, so computer use for them is pretty much limited to whatever they can find on Nickelodeon's site, but in a few years, they'll need a little
more than the tired old WinXP box can provide.
My other thought right now is the baseline Mac Pro
, the Nehalem processor, still comes with only 1066-speed memory while both the dual Westmore processor and i7 iMac
comes with 1333; so waiting a year or two for the baseline Mac Pro to "catch up" may
be smart money.
I think I just talked myself into an iMac.
