Forum Question: Desire a Mac

I’m a fourteen-year-old in the USA. I guess I’ve finally brought into the whole ‘Mac-Apple altar’ thing. I have experience with them (my bro’s macbook from 2006 and the 2007(?) iMacs in my music/tech class) and honestly, they OWN Windows-based PC’s, at least in my opinion. I’m actually so desperate that I installed a dock, expose`, and widgets on my Vista desktop. Lol.

I have some questions:

IF I come into some money (by playing gigs or selling something), what would you do if you were a student who did basic web-surfing, gaming, and typed projects? A MacBook or a Mac mini?

Would I expect a decent computer from e-Bay or Amazon?

Is 80 gigs space enough for the aforementioned purposes?

Thank you. Even if I don’t get one very soon, there’s always more time.

    Any Mac is fine for basic Web surfing. But for gaming, I’d go with something better. If all you can afford is a MacBook or a mini, the mini will get you more power but probably still not ideal for gaming. So you might want to save a little more and get one of the new iMacs. As for 80gigs, you’ll ant way more than that, but even the most basic new Mac has much more.

    I am sixteen and got my macbook about six months ago. I did tons of research on macs because I had never had one before. The price difference between the white macbook and macbook pro 13 is not enough to save from getting a white macbook. I have the late 2008 macbook aluminum 2.4 and I love it and will never go back to windows. Plus being a student the macbook pro is a lot better then the mini which you can’t take with you.
