    So, Sam, did you get the Mac? I have just ordered an Acer with 3G RAM for $500 from Tigerdirect, and that should be plenty for everything. Built in videocamera too. Big 16" screen. Yummie! I really don't see why anyone should pay over 1K for a laptop, unless special needs.

    I am not crazy about Vista, but 3 G RAM should do fine, and I am actually curious how fast/slow it is going to be. My expectation is that it should be faster than the current laptop/desktop.

    Nah, didn't I say? I decided to postpone it for a year. Hopefully, my present Mac can last another year!

    Yeah, but I used to have to carry it for internet access, emails and music. Now I don't, plus its a phone, with maps and GPS. Its very convenient.

    Do you often get lost? How the iPhone stands up to a small, 8" laptop?

    All you really need is 4gb of ram. I just got given 8gb's of corsair xms3 ddr3 ram for free, but it's pointless because i already have 8gb's in my pc and i don't need 8gb's at all. The difference is really just not there and it can often cause freezes and microstutter with more ram than 4gb too.

    The laptop arrived today. My first experience with Vista, not very crazy about it. Will give it a month...
