ok, if i want a computer that will last me AT LEAST 6 years or more, and i DO NOT use any heavy programs like final cut, etc which would be the best to get? i do not like the imac all in one design, and the mac mini is not good enough to me. I want to know i have a computer that i can throw anything at it, and it will not break a sweat. i currently use a pentium 3 800 mhz with 380 mb of ram. which i bought around 9 years ago. at the time, it was one of the top of the line models. this should give you an idea of how i am able to use computers until they pretty much are close to dieing.
