My wife would like a Mac for xmas...ignoring the whole Apple vs. Microsoft debate...are there specific configurations that I should be looking for? I know nothing about Apple products but from their website it doesnt look like they have the equivalent of what I would see if I went to Dell (ie, a slew of pre-built stuff or I can specify specific options). From what I can tell, you can either get an iMac or a Mac-mini. She doesnt plan on doing any heavy duty computer work, just the basic email, surfing, etc. Basically what most people do. I guess she could probably do evreything but gaming. I guess if the picture is good I would watch espn3 on there. Right now on my computer the video quality isnt too good but my computer is about 8 years old (still running XP). Mac-mini looks good from a price perspective but then you need to add a keyboard, monitor, and mouse so maybe not as attractive. Does apple historically ever run any deals on their stuff?
