Thanks everyone! You are right , the budget was not there unfortunately, otherwise I would have went crazy with the wallet. Anyway, I picked up a used iMac and it is one heck of an improvement from what I had. Once finances improve I will upgrade.
I have one small hick up with Mail and will ask in a new post.
Thanks again folks!
