Hello- I recently updated the CPU on my iMac to 1.35GHz(from 800MHz), costs about $500.00 from http://daystartechnology.com . I also just upgraded my internet connect to DSL at 7MBPS with 896KPBS upload speed for $39.00/mo 1st year, then up to $45.00 therafter with an option to buy the modem for $60.00 after the 1st free year(otherwise $5/mo for the modem after year 1). DSL from Qwest. The DSL has been a painfully long wait here in a remote part of Western Montana, not so remote anymore. I now have the fastest system I've ever seen and the iMac is upgraded to the max & working great-love it. I did the CPU upgrade because I wanted to wait for the new Mac intel coming out in the PowerMac. I was lead to believe from this forum that the new intel in PowerMacs would not be available for 2 years, and this is where I want to go. I'm a little surprised they are available in the iMacs already. I hope the new intels don't come out early in PowerMacs so I can justify what I did to this computer for a couple years. What do you think??
