    Thought this forum would be a good place to start, I just turned 14 a got quite a bit of birthday money and I had a toss-up between getting an iMac or Kona Stinky, but I figure biking season is already almost over, I've only used Macs at school and at friends houses so I'm fairly familiar, but far from having them taking a permanent place in my computing world, so here I go:

    -When will Snow Leopard be released? will it come with a price drop?

    -Should buying a used mac be a good option for me? why? why not?

    -iMac or MacBook? portability doesn't bother me, so it comes down to which will give me the most for my dollar?

    Macs of any kind [have a sexual orientation--ed], believe me. over priced and all you get is a crappy Os that you can't do anything with and has like a new version of OS X every 5 months and don't forget your paying double because it has a plastic apple on the back

    yes good job mac are amazing epecially imacs. and yes Snow Leopard is a huge deal. this is going to be the best os ever because apple is redesigning it from the ground up so it is only capable w/ intel based macs. this os will be so stable it isn't even comprehensible. and not that this isn't a great fourms, but if u really want a good mac site try
