I am the owner of a little G4 iMac which has served me well but is on its last leg. I need a new computer and have a friend who is selling his 2006 24 inch imac - details are: iMac, 24 inch screen, Intel Core 2 Duo chip NVIDIA GeForce 7300GT graphics card with 128MB GDDR3 SDRAM Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2.16 GHz 500 G Serial ATA Hard drive 3 G SDRAM DDR2 à 667 MHz SuperDrive 8x (DVD+R DL/DVD+RW/CD-RW) He is asking 1000 EURO - that's about 1500 American Dollars. I am curious to know the comparisons of this 2006 model with the new 2008 model - if the savings are worth buying an older machine or if its much better to spend more for a new one. I need a computer for Photoshop, and have read on this forum the many screen problems in iMacs. Thank you in advance for your help.
