I just got back from FutureShop & Best Buy, and I'm a little confused on what I should get. Now, I'm a sucker for technology but given the volatility of this economy, I don't plan on giving all my money to corporations. So, here's the deal - here's what I do on the computer on a daily basis.
- YouTube (I'm subscribed to a bunch of channels, and yes, I don't watch TV)
- iTunes (listen to music)
- Boxee (that's a media player app. I watch movies.)
- Skype (video/chat)
- Browse the net (chrome/safari always multiple windows open)
- Photoshop (normal images nothing crazy like 20MB and up)
- Download/stream files
So, what would you recommend? The salesman at BestBuy suggested the first option in the above pic; 15-inch: 2.4GHz (i5) and I first casted my vote on this poll.
