I didn't mean she needed a new 'puter, I just threw that out as advice for someone looking to get a new Mac. It's a great deal on a clean/aesthetically pleasing personal computer.
I'm lovin' my new MacBook. Built very well, great peformance for the tasks I take on, and gets almost 4hrs of Battery life with a brightly lit screen. With my Apple Airport wireless network in my apartment, I can sit at my desk, lay on my futon, or take it right into the kicthen with me and be online anywhere I want. Actually (this is kinda funny), I park my vehicle right outside, and get a solid signal from there. So sometimes if I want to order movie tickets or do some banking and I'm in town I'll pull up the driveway, open my notebook, and have at it!
But the iMac is the way to go if you're not constantly on the go like me and don't need a laptop. Much more bang for your buck.
