This week, I've been counting my "saved up" pennies. We're now down to our final strokes - before buying. Plan to purchase the iMac 21.5" with larger HD and better graphics card. Will need iWork as well. My son plays 4 different guitars, he writes music and my daughter does lots of video and voice recordings as well. We'll probably do some DVD burning for downloaded movies and well. If wondering, our desk space doesn't allow the large size 27" system. Thus, 21.5" (refurb unit - to save more dollars) is ok for us. And, our saved up pennies is very limited. re: Every "saved dime" counts. -------------------- For our above wants / needs, should we purchase "bundle" Apple MAC BOX SET" for $199 CDN, or purchase iWork and other apps - if/when they are needed? Perhaps the other apps in Apple Mac Box Set isn't really needed for us? thanks. .
