Title says it all... I basically was thinking that I might get sick of the iMac later seeing that everything is attached to it already and theres no flexibility with anything new I may want later. The G5 iMac comes with a lot of stuff for the price (education discount) for the 17". I was wondering if iMac's retain their value even when the new generation ones come out. I'm one of those people who always likes to have the latest. If they retain their value then I have no problem selling it later and getting another one. Or... I an go with a 20" Cinema Display and well... something else... as you can see I'm trying to stay within a certain price. I was considering this because of the larger screen real estate and the flexibility to hook it up to a different computer. If only them PowerMac G5's were uhh cheaper... =| What do you guys think? * I'm also going to get an iBook 12" no matter what for portability but I'd like the computing power of a desktop at home and avoid using my iBook at home.
