Kids, the time has very nearly arrived! I am in the final decision stages of PC or Mac. I need some honest feedback from those of you have switched from one to the other, and from those of you who have remained tried and true to your system of choice.
I'm currently on a slowly dying (as you know) PC. It has had its time in the sun, but I think it's time to take the old Gateway up to the farm so it can chase rabbits and laze around.
I'm currently looking at the 20" iMac (24" is just decadent, isn't it?). I'm thinking of increasing the memory to 4GB instead of the standard 2GB. Also, bumping up the hard drive to 500GB from the standard 320GB.
Next, we have the iLife and any standard programs vs. the iWork, Aperture, Logic Express, File Maker etc...
Lastly, the Protection Plan. I've always been of the school that most extended warantees aren't necessary if you've got a good product. Sooooooo, Mac users, have you ever had a problem where you wished you had bought the extra AppleCare?
The MobileMe membership doesn't look anything I really need at all. I mean, I'm pretty scattered, but how many programs does one person need to get their shit together, I ask you?
