The 9400 uses system memory. The 9600 does not. If you don't plan on using the higher end graphics card, then think about the 13" MBP.

It's really only been affecting me in games. I've only had one problem with Leopard and that was right after the initial installation. Been smooth sailing since. With the exception of WoW.

I am thinking of trying 02m. Has anyone had any experience with it? I tried the Thunderbird method but the problem was that the timestamps were removed.

Does O2M preserve timestamps?

I'm more worried about spyware. Not doing anything, but taking up disc space. Would like to clean anything out I can.

If you are a student and will be learning Excel in class,I would use Office for Windows. If you can do both, why not.

I am wavering back and forth on this. So far, it seems like there is no way the 2600 is ever going to match the 7600. BUT...I think there will be improvements. If you look at a lot of the game tests,...

Thanks for the response. I am not the hardcore PC gamer I once was. Really, I am more of a Blizzard gamer now than anything else. I want to be able to run WoW and Starcraft 2 comfortably.

The form factor has to be taken into account. After leaving the Apple store yesterday, we passed a Dell stand in the mall. The Dell's looked antiquated. Even with the Dell you are going to pay more...

My wife realized as much yesterday at the Apple store. She really likes the Mac, and can see the value. Even at base, a 24" Imac is a great deal. A huge hard drive, fast processor, built in camera,...

If it weren't for AT&T I would have an iPhone by now. I will not do business with that company. Apple chose a poor carrier.
