Slide scanning project advice???

Back in the day, I took tray after tray of 35mm Kodachrome slides. I'd like to start a project to scan many or all of them and would like some advice on what to do or not do.

Seems I looked into this several years ago and many vendors offered slide scanners. Looks like that wave has passed and the only vendor left is Nikon with a rather expensive offering. I wonder if that's because the slide scanning fade has past or if the flatbed scanners have become good enough and cheap enough?

I have a 3 GHz Macbook Pro. I'd appreciate any feedback I can get on scanning hardware - what's good, what's not. And I probably need to calibrate my expectations for this project. What results should I expect?
