Maybe a few of you can offer some advice/tips: I'm in the market to get a new iMac. I saw the rumor (in Dec on this site) that a new one will be out 1st 1/2 this year but that's a huge window and honestly anyone remotely into Macs would tell you that's a pretty obvious statement. I would flip out if I bought one in early Feb and a new model rolled out in mid March unless there were 0 performance enhancements. But I doubt Apple will roll out a new iMac and simply change the color. 1)Anyone hear any better timeframes? I don't have to buy tomorrow but would like to buy before Feb 15. 2)Any rumors on exactly what the iMac will have for new features? All I really care about for new features are price, memory, and CPU. When I look for new models of computers, all I really care about is overall horsepower and a nice display. It would be sweet if it came with a 256GB or larger SSD at the same pricepoints but I don't see that happening as SSD has not become mainstream yet and Apple loves their margins. 3)I'm tempted to get the 27" as I already own a Windows XP box (and Mac Mini) pushing to a 24" and love it to death. But I do wonder if the 27" is just gonna be too large even though it's only 3 inches larger diagonally. I am aware of the tech specs on all the models. I am leaning towards the baseline 27" and possibly adding my own RAM for $175 instead of Apple's steep $400 to make it an 8GB machine. The 27" model is very attractive over the 21.5" model when you sit down with a pen and paper and compare the 2. 4)Main uses are iPhoto and iMovie...our 3+ year old Mini is ok with these, so I hope the apps still exist and didn't get worse over time. We are still pretty Windows XP junkies but I have to say iPhoto and iMovie are great (free) tools. I would assume the i3 chip and 4GB (or 8) of RAM and a 7200RPM drive would be pretty fast at rendering a 60min video clip compared to our Core 2 Duo chip and 2GB of RAM on a 5400RPM drive. 5)(thinking out loud here): wonder if I should sell my cost-me-$1200-mini-in-late-2007 but I am guessing it's barely worth $500 and not sure if really want to part with it. The new mini is overpriced if you ask me and this little guy would be a great 2nd Mac to muck around with. Anyway, thought I would ask a few questions and see what people think. Thanks in advance!
