Wow! Are you you in luck Tom.

I would thoroughly recommend a new Apple iMac (my dream 2nd machine is  
the new 27" iMac, 1st is a rediculously loaded Mac Pro).

With that you get Spotlight which is both fast and very effective at  
searching both notebooks and the Mathematica documentation (after you  
put a copy in an accessible directory). And with the 27" iMac you get  
wonderful high definition screen to see graphical output.

You also get a great operating system and probably the fastest and  
most stable platform for Mathematica.

Cheers .... Syd
