My little brother is asking for a mac for his birthday. He'll be turning 11 on March 3rd. He's not into computer games (just his xbox360 and wii). He's starting to write papers at school. He's going on the internet more often. He has an ipod. Do you think the 17" iMac + extra RAM would be good for what he needs for the next couple of years? My parents are willing to spend $1500.
