I almost bought an iMac today, but got overwhelmed with everything the salesperson at Best Buy told me I had to buy - in the end the quote was $3900. I am not sure I trust him to tell me honestly what I need (I can already delete the $670 in GeekSquad assistance and the extra warranty plan he wanted to sell me). This is what they told us we would need: iMac 2.8GHz w/ 24" display ($1799) wireless keyboard ($79) wireles mouse ($69) Time Machine ($299) HP 7280 printer ($259) HP printer cartridge ($35) Microsoft Office installed ($129) Vista Ultimate Full ($319) Best Buy 3 yr protection plan ($269) Geek Squad installation ($189) Geek Squad network installation ($219) Our 5 year old Dell Dimension desktop died. Figured it was a good time to switch to Mac (they seem so cool!). This is especially appealing since the new Macs now have the capability to run Windows, if necessary. My husband and I are lawyers and work in PC environments. We need to be able to access some windows programs. Questions: 1. We were told that Citrix is not compatible with a Mac, and would have to be accessed on the Windows side of our iMac. Is this true? Besides Citrix, there are a few programs that we will occasionally use that are PC-only. 2. What is the best (and least expensive) way to configure the computer for occasional Windows use? From websites/forums I have looked at, it appears Windows XP will work as well, and it seems less expensive than Vista. Is there a reason I would choose to spend so much extra on Vista? I see mention of programs such as Bootcamp, Parallels and Fusion Ware (I think that was what it was called). Is one better than the other for our purposes? 3. Does anyone have an opinion on the list of must-haves we got from Best Buy, and what should not be on the list, or what should be (and is not)? We are not big gamers. Mostly the computer will be used for web surfing, iTunes, photos and maybe (in the future) videos/movies. We should be using the Mac operating system for all of that. We do draft documents in Word, but they are not very complicated, so it seems we could use Word on either the Mac side, or the Windows side, depending on your advice. Any advice would be appreciated!! Trying not to be a gullible buyer . . .
