ok so i have been thinking of buying a mac for some time but im not shure on what i should get. i was thinking of getting a mac mini cause its not the most expensive but i also have been thinkin of maby looking for a used ibook g4. umm i guess one of the main reasons i want one is to edit so if any one can point me in the direction of whats better to get the help would be greatly appretiated.

ps. im still living in the stone age and i have dialup lol i noticed theres something extra to buy to hook up a mac with dialup would i have to buy one or will it just work.

What exactly do you want to edit?

And new Mac's don't come with a modem so you will have to get a usb modem to use your dial up account. However an iBook G4 would have a built in modem.

That's the exact reason I got my first powerbook. The protability was awsome cause we could take the footage off the camera right after filming and then reuse the tape. Also makes reviewing it easier as you don't have to use the tiny screen on the camera. So I would go with laptop. And and iBook G4 should run iMovie just fine.

Last I knew, Graph wasn't British, but rather American :black:
Therefore he technically should have followed the rules of American grammar and spelling and "spelled" should have been used.

...but back on topic...
If you are going to do a lot of video editing, an iMac would suit your needs better than the Mini.

As long as marriam-webster allows me to use it.. it is still spelt correctly.

There is also a huge difference between accidental and intentional miss spelling.

if you CAN wait on getting an iMac, I suggest waiting until after Apple's WWDC in August to see if they roll out with anything new and exciting then...

the back of our computer looks better than the front of theirs
