Ok hears the situation... I am an final year architecture student, i'm planning to get a iMac and taking advantage of the back to school deal in the uk: 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 2 GB 800MHz DDR2 SDRAM - 2x1 GB 500GB Serial ATA Drive NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS w/512MB GDDR3 And going to update the RAM to 4GB with cruical and getting a ipod touch 16GB + printer deal. Now i'm going to get parallels because thats what from my experience is what architect's have at their practices. For autoCAD etc.. What are people's views on that? and any people experienced in using cad progs on parallels..or bootcamp? any problems? Thing is I don't need it straight away...so I might wait until mid-october..incase of a new iMac coming out. However I know i'll always be waiting ..so shall I buy it now? or wait? ----- Lots of questions! But i've been waiting ages for this promo lol..might buy it this weekend.. and just stare at it before turning it on! Ok all comments and replies greatly appreicated.
