I am looking into buying a Mac, I currently have a PC. I am a singer/songwriter and need to work with a music editing program (at least Garage Band) and want programs to edit video as well. I know I'll need a mac. I'd prefer a refurbished laptop - any suggestions on how much harddrive, and what kind? And where I might find one?

You don't need a mac for any of those tasks, unless you specifically want to work with garageband (There are better programs for audio production)

You need to remember that when comparing PC spec to a Mac it isn't as simple as just numbers.

eg, if you had a PC with a Quad Core CPU running at 4x3Ghz, and 4Gb of RAM, a Mac with a single core at 2Ghz and 1Gb of RAM will quite easily outperform the PC.

This is one reason why Macs are so expensive - you don't need to upgrade them every week.

Anyway the answer is any Mac would do. Even a bog standard MacBook you can get Garageband on, cheap as chips as well.

I'm fairly confident that on a PC you could probably get a program which does everything Garageband does which would be cheaper than completely changing system.
