There is a good chance that in the next few weeks I will take the plunge and get a new computer. I am still undecided as to what I will actually get, but I am heavily leaning iMac. I know, I have had a Windows PC since 1989, but I have had way to many issues with hijacked computers and pop ups. Let alone the whole Vista debacle.
My issues with converting are this:
1) Software – I will need to spend some cash getting Office, Photoshop, a good HTML editor, a DVD Ripper and DVD Authoring program.
2) MP3s – I will need to reformat my iPod and move them somewhere. I am tempted to turn my PC into a MP3 jukebox that will sit somewhere on all the time and allow me to stream my music from both computers
1) New Faster computer
2) Ability to do more multimedia work for my new websites
3) Cost – If I get a windows system, I can get a whole lot more for the same price
The decision will come if I can get this contract I am working on hammered out in the few days. I missed a call from my client and I will touch bases with them tomorrow to try and resolve everything. Once it is all resolved, I will be able to spill the beans on what will happen.
