    I have about £1200 to spend on a new comp, and i was wondering, is a mac worth the buy, i heard they are good for graphic designs, which would be good, as i am taking a graphics course at college, I really want to know the best/worst bits about them, and a good model for the money i've got.

    I would buy a mac to do anything except gaming. I have a mac and I love it. I'm sure you will too. Not sure about the exchange rate as I'm in the USA.

    If you want to play a lot of games, no. If games are not important to you, yes.

    I am a graphic design pro and I would never use anything other then a PowerMac again.

    I haven't had my Mac for a month yet and I use it for virtually everything I do over my PCs. I'd say I do 90% of my computing work on my PB now. About the only things I still use my PCs for are gaming and long, drawn out tasks, like Torrents, etc.

    In short: hell yes.

    I think your answer will be quite biased in here but face it, its the truth. You should and you'll love it!

    I got my Mac on wednesday. First time i've ever touched one.

    Yes. :p Unless you're a big game fan (lots of games have ports, but no sign of one for Steam games yet). The only reason my PC is on at the moment is to play Sims 2. :)
