Alright well at the moment I have a Dell laptop (see signature for specs) that I bought a little under a year ago. I love the thing but at the moment I've been thinking about selling off the Dell laptop and using the funds to purchase a low profile PC as well as an iBook (which i kinda need for the lab). I would like to get a machine that is as low profile as possible preferably with a thin LCD monitor as well. I do some gaming as well as photo and video editing so I'll need something that can handle a decient workload. Ideally I would like to get something name brand since I just don't have the time or focus to deal with piecing together a machine right now. the problem is that I would like to spend about $800 on it. I checked the Dell website who i like to do busniess with but they didn't seem to have any small profile machines. If anyone has any idea for low profile machines that I could look at I would really appreciate it. On a side note if anyone has any thoughts on if/when the prices of apples iBooks will be coming down please let me know, last time I looked they were about $800 for the one that i wanted, pretty much minimum specs plus the airport card, now however they're like $1000, which is way more than I want to spend.
