25. Don't go Apple for the long term
Because of Apple's impending switch to Intel chips, the current line of G4 and G5 based machines are not going to age well--software written a few years from now will not run on the PowerPC platform as Apple software developers begin to write software for the Intel chips.

My suggestion is to forget about having a computer that lasts more than 3-4 years: the computing world just moves too quickly now for that. Instead focus on purchasing a sub-$1000 PC that will be terrific for the next couple of years and then cross that bridge when you get to it.
