Ok, so here's my situation: In about a year, I will be starting on the classes for pre-med. I also plan on getting an iPod and an iPod shuffle eventually (once the rumored "new models" come out in August of this year) for my music collection. Right now, I mostly use my computer (4 year old PC) for web browsing, e-mail, and some light photoshop work. Before I start the pre-med classes, I want to get a new Mac for here at home and a laptop for taking notes and such at school, since I can type faster than I can write. And God knows how many notes I'll be taking in the pre-med classes So what do you folks recommend? I'm thinking an 80gb Mac Mini and an iBook would suit my needs without breaking the bank too badly. My monitor is a 19" KDS which still works fine, so a monitor isn't an issue right now. I am a student, so I can get the student discount at the Apple stores. Your thoughts?
