    Before I wasn't really interested in Macs, but now I kind of want to buy one. A laptop or computer, it doesn't matter. What do you recommend as the best Mac product?

    Once you go Mac, you never go back! Especially since now we have the option of running Windows anyway...
    My Mac is among the best purchases I've ever made. I'm very satisfied.

    It all depends on what you want. If you want a desktop, then obviously an iMac would be your best choice (unless you want sheer performance and have some cash to throw out the window, then get a Mac Pro). BUT you can also go for the Mac Mini, though with which you'll need an external desktop monitor; you'll get that same general Mac experience in a tiny, cheaper package.

    As for laptops, I think a Macbook Pro would be the way to go. Get one with an i5 processor as the Core 2 Duos are aging, but still work well if you don't want to throw a bit more cash into the pot.

    You can compare the different laptop models here:
    MacBook Pro - Buy MacBook Pro notebook computers - Apple Store (U.S.)

    And a couple desktops here (including the Mini):

    Mac is really good os in the world, So any of that version is also good.
    But if you are dealing with Macintosh, i want to describe some advantages:
    • “Plug-and-Play” capabilities
    • built-in SCSI port
    • easier to install
    • provides active assistance
    • superior folder management compared with Windows.
    • provides superior on-screen window management....
    and many more..

    I have the iMac and Macbook... if I had to go out and buy again I would probably buy a laptop again. I use mine so much more than my iMac.... it is so convenient to connect to wifi while I am in any part of the house. With the iMac you are stuck in one room. If you decide to get a laptop get the Macbook Pro.... my next laptop will be the pro!

    I know that I can convert Windows programs to Mac, but will it work for Goldwave? I don't want to lose that program and I hate Audacity.

    Simply run Windows on your Mac and you'll be able to run any program that isn't Mac compatible.
