Macs come in two flavors, nice and really nice. The Mac mini is the entry level box and it is $599. I think all the laptops come with a gig of ram and at least a 60 gig HD. All new Macs come with iLife installed. Google it and check it out it is nice. Apple's yearly developer conference (WWDC) is June 12, if there are any new things coming out it will be announced then so it might be worth while to wait a few days. If you want a cheap way to test drive a mac this forum has a buy sell trade thread, Ebay has some deals from time to time, macofalltrades.com sells used macs. The more popular Intel-Macs get the cheaper PPC Macs get and they work pretty good.

Texas, where else?
Your Mac's Specs
15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
Go to Apple's site here.
This is the location for the 15" notebook - called MacBook Pro.
There is only one, with about 4 options rather than the 3 or 4 different machines with a hundred options each like the Dell's of the world.
Check it out, then if you have ??'s, post back.
