After an apple computer

What's a good one for torrent downloads

Good enough hdd 250gb- 500gb

I can run stuff like minor game nothing mind blown that requires silly stuff to play them, without it slowing down

And for Internet

Cheers

Did you get yours sorted?

iMac would be the best, even the base model has a nice sized hard disc drive. I would sign up on a very and get 10% off first order!!

Thinking mac book air is it worth the plunge?

If you just want it for things you listed in the op then it would be a waste of money imo.

But if you want one and can afford it then go for it

Do it, buy one. I'd go Mac all day long if it's just for the things you mentioned.

Erm, quick economics class:

iMac with 500GB harddisk = £1000, est.

Actual disk space after formatting & OS = 400GB

Cost of broadband = £15

Cost of 400GB of DLs, assuming 100GB/month fair use = £60

Cost of electricity = £10

Effective cost = £1070 / 400GB = £2.68/GB



So, for your typical 5GB 720p HD movie, you're looking at around £11 in the worst case scenario, or £20 if you go for something with a 250GB disk. Those purdy 10GB 1080p rips become £22 and £40ish, and, etc.

In short, a cheap laptop connected to an external 2TB drive and you're economically far better off. The idea of piracy is to make things as cheap as possible, not more expensive than the genuine article.

Yes all sorted now I then sold it on for a nice profit ;-)

I LOL'd.

Indeed DJ not sure why you would want to waste money on a MAC for this purpose alone.

Stick with a cheap pc and a big external hard drive.

I'd pay more for a Mac even if I just used it for internet as DJ said.
