Hello All, I am taking the plunge and will be purchasing a new iMac 17" model sometime around christmas (december-january). I have a couple of questions that I would like answered before buying: 1. When is an update to the iMac line expected. I know they were updated recently, but do you think another is coming before january 2007? 2. I intend on getting an iMac setup like this: iMac 17" Core 2 Duo 2.0gHZ 1GB RAM 128MB X1600 160 GB hard drive Will 1gb of ram be enough for good performance? (I don't usually have more than 2 apps open at once). Will gaming performance of older games be ok? Eg. Quake 3 Ghost Recon (not sure about that one) and Civilization 3. Will a 160GB hard drive be enough for me? I have a small iTunes library (2GB) and don't intend on much apart from games and DVD possibly backed up. Photo library about 900MB. Is there much of a performance gain in ordering a 2.16gHz processor instead? Thanks very much guys, you help will be very much appreciated! It is hard to get advice down here in New Zealand from people who really know what they are talking about!!!
