Should I Take the Bite?

An Apple. A Mac Apple, specifically.

Many of you know what a lousy time I’ve had trying to find video-editing software for my Vista PC and my Kodak digital camera (that records movies in .MOV files). After pulling out tufts of hair in frustration, I quit. I’ve download a billion codecs, all SORTS of video-editing software, converters, etc etc etc. FORGET IT. I can’t get ANYTHING to work, and believe me, I’ve tried. I even spent $30 on Apple Quicktime Pro and $35 on ULead Studio. Nothing works! Gah!! :bangwall:

:cwy: The advice I got from most people was “Ditch the PC and get a Mac.”

Oh hardy har har. Sorry, but spending $2000 on a COMPUTER is waaaay out of my league. No WAY will I spend more money on a computer than I will on a CAR!

Oooo but then I saw the Apple Mini.

:jittery:

I think I’m in loooove. Ain’t it purdy?!

It’s *only* $599 at Buy.com. With FREE shipping! $599 is nothing to sneeze at, I know…. but it’s very comparable to many PCs out there…. and the Apple Mini has iMovie on it, which looks like THE perfect video-editing software.

What do you think? It’s nothing I can afford any time soon, I’d have to save up for it, maybe wait for a good sale. And I’m quite sure one the kids would be terribly happy to inherit my Vista PC hot rod should I get an Apple… any Apple users out there? Is the Apple Mini a good deal? It looks REALLY small… does it, uh, WORK? Please– if you have an Apple, would you leave a comment and let me know how you like it? I haven’t had a Mac in… well, the one in my closet is a 1984 model! So, it’s been a while.

And while you’re at it, you may want to look at the very nice selection of Apple products at Buy.com. I LOVE Buy.com! They are really great guys with the best service– and their prices are excellent. Plus, they have the funniest Howie Mandell video ads, lol. Keep them in mind if you need good stuff at good prices.

So I’m off to investigate the Apple brand a little more.

    I can’t speak for the Mac mini, but after getting my iMac two years ago I’ve never looked back. I absolutely love it and can’t see myself ever switching back to the world of PCs. Of course it depends what you use your computer for, but if you tend to focus on creative exploits then, personally speaking, I’d go Mac!

    Oh you doll, thanks for letting me know. I KNEW there were some Apple users sulking about, lol.

    Yes, I’ve always heard good things about Apple. I’ve never heard of the Mini, either, though. I wish Apple wasn’t so durn expensive.
