Ohhh what 2 buy, what 2 buy….
iWas thinking hmm, quad core g5 powermac, but then, y’know… ya gotta futurize, so intel is likley the best choice when making such a massive purchase. It’s just that g5 quads on ebay are do-able as in $1750, which is a chunk of change, but SO much computer.
Anyway, ihave an iMac now, and boy-o-boy it does the job, so i think i’ll stick with the new slick, 2.4 ghz with 3 gigs of RAM or so, but only under one condition…
That iGet ANOTHER monitor.
Hey, its video editing, i just gotta. Put it this way. iWANT the 24″ 2.8 imac with a terra byte maxed out on RAM, but can u believe it is over budget, yeah, tell me about it.
So the next logical thing to do is either get a dated refurb, for a much lower price, or get… new and old.. both?
Yeah, the catch is that I will have to get a 20″ iMac again, but a 20″ with a tonn of power AND an Apple monitor. Hot tamale! i know it. It’s not all that much really. You buy the 2.4 20″ imac, and go for the 20″ refurb monitor. That way things look uniform and you are still looking at state of the art-cult-of-mac status that will ensure: future-proofing, high quality editing, and perhaps the ability to run Civilization 4, which at $45 seems a better hipper deal, than civ 3 for $15 on ebay, but either way; a 24″ new with 500 hard drive is over $2000 and for about the same price you can get a new 20″ 2.4 with a 20″ Apple refurb monitor all from the Apple store at about the same price.
Anyhoo, since I lifted a little Wikipedia media about the iMac on my mind, iThought it best to fill you in on a little more about Apple, Inc. and the things iThink. Still waiting for Leopard tho, don’t wait for iWork 08 (get it) and waiting for a quad/ocho after mac goes all intel 45 nm penryn until i go all out for a power station and likely say ciao to the imac unless by some chance my kid wants one and they kick as much fanny in 10 years as they do now. De todas maneras. Saludos.
