Hello all, I've wanted a Mac for years now but held off since I was in school as a computer science major and needed windows to make my homework life easier. I finished school this past spring and now I have a lovely work laptop which can take care of my windows needs. So now I'm looking at buying an iMac since I've been jealous of my girlfriends iBook for years now That being said I'm trying to decide if the extra $250 dollars is really worth the cost to jump up to the 2.8Ghz version. I know that I'm buying extra RAM after market due to the dramatic price difference and that $250 could more than pay for 4 GB of RAM. I'm a fairly demanding user of a computer being that I'm a programmer and I love the things . I will be using Handbrake for converting my DVD's to a lovely iPod compatible format. I will be running emulators to play my old game collection. I will be using the computer for just about anything but image work since I really don't bother with it. That being said I might also have to pick up Command & Conquer 3 since I love that game. Please help someone who's wanted to switch for many years now as I'd greatly appreciate some opinions P.S. If you don't think it's worth the cost of the processor jump then what are the opinions on the screen size since I could go either way then?
