    been umming and arghhing for months - i wanted a Mac for performance and aesthetics, Jon doesn't want a Mac - i dont really know why, he likes playing games on his PC and uses this as an excuse. Should i take a lower spec Mac or a high spec PC- should i get a laptop or a desktop. Well finally we decided and just ordered from John Lewis (2 year free guarantee and £200 off rrp) for pick up on Monday!

    it is going to be fantastic for photo processing and also for Jon and we will share it and the laptop.

    I'm sure the geeks want to know the spec so will cut and paste

    we are going to get an upgrade to windows 7 too!
