Hey all, I've got a 600MHz Snow iMac (stock) that's coming up to 3 years old, and I think it's time to 'trade up'. I have a couple of questions for those who use their Macs in a SoHo type setting: What makes more sense: - Purchasing the computer outright (which would take a few more months of 'saving up') - Financing it through AppleLoan - Leasing it at my local Apple retailler (Westworld Computers) - Financing it some other way, like on a line of credit? Macromedia Studio MX is pretty much unbearable, and the 1024x768 rsolution is killing me for interface design and graphics work. I'd like to keep it around for my wife, but I think that I can get a pretty good trade-in value for it so I'll likely go that route. Anyway. Part of me wants to go the lease/loan route, because I would like to get my hardware sooner than later - but I understand that my lusting and impatience might be clouding the fact that in the end I'll be paying much more than the computer was originally worth, and likely long after I've retired it. Also, I'm considering the 17" iMac. In a business/graphics environment, do you believe that this would be enough horsepower to last 3-4 years? Is there a simple comparison between it and the 1.6 GHz G5 I can look at? Or does anyone have direct experience with the two? Sorry for all the questions, but this is a big decision for me. Thanks for any input you might have! Chris.
