If you’re thinking of using it as a primary computer down the road, you might want to check into getting it ‘Built to Order’ through an Apple Store or ‘the’ Apple Store online. [emphasis mine]
My primary computer? To be honest, I hadn’t really given that much thought. My first thought was that I could use it for all my online activity, given the relative lack of Mac-related viruses, etc., roaming the net. And keep the Windows machine primarily for playing games that don’t run on a Mac, or for which the Mac version isn’t initially released. (I seldom feel like waiting, once a game I want hits the shelves.)
That said, it might actually become my primary computer if I use it for all of my online activity. Then, of course, I could use the iPod with it (though that would mean going through the process of loading all onto the iPod all over again). All the stuff I do for work gets done on the iBook, which means that everything would transfer pretty seamlessly from one machine to another, and so I’d probably use the mini whenever I worked from home. (Of course, that would mean getting PhotoShop, and MicroSoft Office, for the Mac, to use at home.)
Good grief. I probably would end up only using the Windows machine for games. That means the Mac would become my primary computer.
Good Lord! What am I becoming?!? 😉
