Computer Shopping

I was at the Apple Store today. I'm still thinking about my next computer, and I had a chance to ask around a little bit more about Boot Camp -- I suspect that may actually be a better fit than Parallels, especially given the license restrictions of Vista on virtual machines.

I really like the look of a Mac Book Pro. I'll probably wait until the next version of the operating system comes out -- but I haven't made up my mind for sure. Of course, I haven't even decided for sure if that's the route I'm going to go -- a Mac is going to end up as a more expensive purchase than any PC, and I suspect that I'd have some issues switching between the two, and supporting multiple environments.

At the same time, I suspect that there will be some more value in expanding my skills to include some of the things on a Mac -- and it's my belief that we're seeing operating systems mean less and less, as you look towards more web-based applications. And the types of things that I'm currently interested in would make it very useful to have multiple environments.

But I haven't made up my mind quite yet...
