I am on the market for an IMac 24" and need to get it before March. From what I have been reading it's best to wait unless you need it now and I am sure that is the response I will get the most but I want to know others opinions. I was going to go with the 2.4 24" stock config and upgrade ram to 3GB. Will a new processor or any important updates likely occur before Jan/Feb? I really "want" it now since it will be my first mac and I can't wait but I want to make a smart decision. Leopard doesn't fall into the decision making process as I am fine with upgrading that. I was reading about Blu-ray being incorporated after the holidays. Is this likely or optimistic speculation? My intended uses are office, light video and picture editing for personal use, internet and multimedia. No heavy design or editing software, no gaming.
