I'm about to take the plunge (switching from PC) and want to make sure I'm getting configured right...........here goes: I'm not an advanced user, but expect to get involved shortly with creating highlight DVDs (with voice over) for sports footage (i.e. football highlights ala John Madden for training players and refs). Other than this, my basic needs will include photo editing and organizing, web surfing, MS Office for Mac using, standard issue computer stuff........maybe some basic games for the kids, but not so much for me. Here are my questions: I'm thinking iMac 24", upgraded for 2GB RAM and the 256VRAM. I don't see my needs requiring the 2.33Ghz upgrade from the 2.16, and I'll just upgarde the hard drive externally if I ever fill up the 250G version that comes loaded. Any thoughts you Mac experts have for a Mac newbie on my config ideas?? I'm looking forward to leaving "the dark side".......thanks for the input.
