I think I'll get a new 21.5" iMac in the very near future. I'd love to get the 27", which I can afford, but I don't think I have the needs for that. I only use my iMac at home for music, photos, internet, ... casual stuff. The most CPU intensive activity I do is play 1080p video files (mkv, mp4, avi, ...) on it, and display the picture on my HDTV using a VGA cord. Even though I could use the bigger screen to watch those videos, I just like to do that in my living room rather than at my desk. As for the RAM, the 4gig by default + an additionnal 4gig bought on crucial seems to make the most sense if you guy agree that it's easy to install and not worth upgrading on the Apple online store. So the only question remaining is : - what processor should I get ? 3.06 or 3.33 Ghz ? Oh by the way, I'm looking at the higher end 21,5" model, especially because of the graphic card. What do you advise me to do ?
