I've been strictly mobile for the past six months, using a MacBook Core 2 Duo. While it's a great machine, I've missed having a desktop computer sitting in my office. Today my sentimental feelings for a desktop computer got the better of me, and I purchased a new 24" iMac configured-to-order from Apple. Here are the specs: 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Extreme 4 GB RAM (I ordered it from OWC, not Apple) 500 GB SATA hard drive I intentionally purchased it just before the Leopard release because I don't plan on immediately upgrading from Tiger. I'll probably wait until 10.5.1 is released before taking advantage of the $10 upgrade. Now the waiting begins. It will be nice coming back to the desktop!
