I've been visiting the MacRumors forums for quite a while and I've learned alot from the topics being discussed. Thanks for those who have been providing the info! This is my first real topic here so I know I will be making some mistakes such as even posting a recommendation thread like this, (I think I've seen some others that have had harsh replies) but I would love to have some help. I am trying to decide what iMac I really need. I want a 27" and I would love to have the power of an i7 processor, but beyond that I don't know what is a need and what is a want.. I use a lot of Adobe software (Ps, Ae, Sb, Pr) and my poor Windows laptop about dies when trying to export some projects. (i5, 4gb ram). My dream BTO mac is I7 Processor, 4gb Ram (Upgradable), 2tb hd w/256 ssd, the best graphics card but unless I'm mistaken, I will need to buy a new adobe license to use with a Mac (didn't get the universal license) so I would like to save as much on my iMac as possible. Any suggestions? Also, for other Windows Converts, I use MS Publisher 2010 ALOT on my pc and MS Word doesn't look no where near as easy to toy with and I haven't played with Pages much yet but the videos makes me wonder if it has similar enough functionality. Is there a good Pub equivalent on a Mac or is using Windows in Bootcamp my best option?
