1st, thanks for checking out the post. I'm a PC user and would really like to try out Mac. I'm not exactly sure the differences, but I'm tired of the BSD that occasionally pop up. I have $2000 to spend. Should I invest on a 17"/Ghz Imac or go for the 1.25 DP Power Mac? I love the look of the Imac, but I'm also addicted to speed. ... or should I just the dump the whole idea and opt for a 3Ghz PC? I like tinkering with digital photos (and soon with video), as well as word processing and Web development.
