    I am getting the 24" iMac fully loaded.

    2.33 MHZ
    3GB of Ram - (Aftermarket)
    256 Video Card
    500GB
    Wireless Keyboard and mouse.

    Its really a big plunge but after being on this board for 2 months I am finally ready.

    I'll still be around with questions, but thanks to everyone who helped.

    Also:

    Enough with the Dell bashing. I've owned a Dell Dimension 4100 Pentium 3 for 6 years now and haven't had any hardware problems or any other problems really. Windows ME was horrible, but XP stablized the system mostly. If someone NEEDS a PC I will always recommend Dell.

    Thanks again though everyone!

    Just one question: what made you go for 3GB RAM? 2GB seems enough for almost anything.

    I got a good deal from a friend who sells 3rd party Ram. He sold me a 2GB stick for real cheap and I got the 1GB included.

    Does the iMac not come with 2 x 512mb sticks?

    Thats one hell of a configuration for an iMac.
    Just out of curiosity, why did you not go for a Mac Pro instead?

    A. I wanted to really clean out some space in my room.
    B. I only have a 19" CRT now so a new 24" display would run me a bunch

    So

    For a similar configuration with a monitor

    Subtotal $5,308.00

    Estimated Ship:
    2-4 business days

    Free Shipping

    $5,308.00

    rather than

    $2978.00 + 175 for my 3G ram upgrade = 3153
