Default New Computer?

I don't know what to get

I just got this paperweight serviced and a Norton download has it running horribly now (can't access secure sites)

So what would I be Better off with

A mac Power book

or a new PC with a HUGe *** HDD and 1 gig of Ram?

I want to make music and do Video editing

id say the new PC - don't get a laptop or power book unless you need a computer on the go, they're not good for gaming anyway.

If you are going video editing, then you would want to go a desktop computer.
