What exact Mac should I get?
How to buy a Mac? Open wallet and say goodbye to your hard earned money.
As far as what one to get. Depends on what you want to use it for. If you want a laptop you have 2 largely different ones. THe Macbook Air and Pro, Pro is for more power users, air is more portable. On the desktop you basicalyl have the iMac or Mac Mini, the latter is kinda cruddy.
