Moved: buying a new computer, what should I do?

in General Discussion edited January 2014
I'm buying a new mac before I go to college... or at least to aquire shortly after classes start.

Right now I'm still on an iMac Rev B, and I'm gonna get the best I can. I was planning on just getting the dual 1 ghz, but now I'm hearing about something with August 13th, and some leaked photos, and I'm intrigued...

I'm not the type that is always the most informed on apple's activities, so I'm asking you guys what you would do if you were planning on buying a new computer shortly.

    For college get a laptop, trust me I had a desktop in college and wish I had had a laptop. Trust me the mobility of a machine like a powerbook or ibook will come in far more handy and be far more fun than the power of a dual proc. machine. You do not need all that power for writing papers and IMing your friends. Besides you will pick up a lot more girls outside with a powerbook or ibook than you will wasting away in your room with a me. No doubt get a laptop.

    I'd have to agree. In a situation like that, I would imagine a laptop (PowerBook or iBook...that's up to you to decide) would get more usage and come in WAY more handy than a dorm-bound desktop Mac.

    Yea!! get a laptop...

    since i switched to laptops 3 years ago i use only them...

    now i have the iBook

    the 'fixed' computer works best in office but i believe that the mobility will be really good for you!

    and be happy.. in US the macs cost a loooot less than in Europe.. <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />
