Bob Thurston brought up another topic on his thread about GPS, so I thought it deserved a thread of its own.

"Thanks folks, I really appreciate getting that advice about gps devices. I just bit the bullet and ordered a gpsmap csx, like Mark's. I'm hoping that the elevation works better than what Mark said but I don't have any great expectations about this.
I really enjoyed seeing folks at the rrtc meeting, and I found Duane's presentation inspiring. I'm hoping to delve into some of that computer mapping during these quieter winter months. In a roundabout way this prompts another question-- since my wife pretty much monopolizes our desktop computer these days I will have to get a computer. The question is, are these mapping and drawing programs easier on PC's or on macs? And: how much memory should I be sure to have?"
