Do you need
a Mac? I'm all for Mac, don't get me wrong, but for the money you're far better off getting a Dell or a Gateway. There are some real advantages about Mac, but cost is not one of them. If you can afford it and don't mind spending the extra money, then you will be very happy with your purchase. But if money is an issue, you may want to consider a PC.
I just bought my wife a Gateway notebook for $750 this summer. For that price we got a combo drive, a beautiful 15" monitor, a 360GB disk and 2GB RAM, wireless, etc. I doubt you could find anything comparable in a Mac for less than twice that.
Just to consider.
