I've noticed that whenever someone want's to buy an iMac, the immediate response on this forum is to "Get the 24" iMac". This is even after the user mentions that they are on a tight budget with limited desk space. Another response is that the 20" iMac screen is crappy. Whenever I see responses like this, it disturbs me because it seems like there is a certain snobbish mentality among 24" iMac owners. It's like if you don't own a 24" iMac, you are a low life. The 24" iMac is a great machine. It's fast and the display is fanstastic. I will probably own one someday. Right now I have the 20" iMac only because I wanted to test the Apple waters and was on a budget at the time of purchase. It does what I need for now and that's all I can ask. I guess what I'm trying to say is that it would be nice for forum members here to simply tell the user what is right for their situation rather than advising them to go hog wild on a 24" iMac forcing them to go overbudget and well beyond what they really need. I must admit though, I do see a 24" iMac or possibly a MacPro in my future. The entire Apple computer line is excellent.
