I grabbed a 17" iMac yesterday for $2130 CDN. Thats $1600 USD. 1ghz, 256mb DDR, 80gb HD, superdrive, etc. It was a floor model. I have a PC for gaming, but I am wondering if a PB would have been a better choice. I will be doing video, photo and music. No level 3 cache seems to make these slower than the PM and PBs. So, what do you experts think? I have two weeks to decide whether to keep it. It sure is purdy. I might even keep it in my kitchen - its not something I want to hide.
