...or if not, something has at least taken a commanding lead.
About a month and a half ago, in a post called Laptop or Contacts?, I was debating the merits of those two items in terms of one of them becoming my newest "toy" in the near future, and I appreciate all the comments I received. I haven't actually done anything of substance toward procuring either item, but today, my parents (who are visiting for a short time this week) told me out of the blue that I'll be getting a new computer for my birthday in little over a month! Laptop wins! (Unless, that is, I happen to get contacts on my own between now and then. As I said in the earlier post, the wild-card in all this would be getting one of the two as a gift, which might allow me to have both of them before long.)
So, now that I have a probable winner, I throw open the floor for suggestions again. As I told some friends tonight, I'm 99% sure that the computer will be a laptop and not a desktop, and I'm 120% sure that it will be a Mac. So my questions are basically aimed at my fellow Mac users: What model should I get? Does size matter? Any special features I should look for? (Comments from Gates World missionaries trying to "convert" me to the Dark Side of the Force will be welcomed strictly for amusement purposes.)
This is gonna be really, really cool...
