    Hello, this is my first post on here. Yay! I am hoping you can help. I want to get an :apple: iMac and I need your help on how to customize it.

    My needs: I will be using the internet most of the day
    Writing documents
    Occasionally watching DVD's
    Running Spotify
    Occasionally watching HD videos on youtube and
    Running iTunes sometimes.

    I would want the 27 inch iMac quad core.

    i5 or i7
    4GB, 8GB 4x2GB, 8GB 2X4 or 16GB
    1TB or 2TB
    Magic Mouse or Mighty Mouse
    Wireless or Wired keyboard
    iWork or MS Word for Mac
    and should I get the Apple Remote? :apple:

    Any current Mac is just fine for you. Get the stock i5, even it is way too powerful for you. Try the trial of iWork and Office for Mac and then decide, I personally like iWork. If you don't have iPod Touch or iPhone, then the remote might be useful if you watch a lot movies

    The 3.06HGHz C2D will more than suffice your needs.

    The i5 or i7 are a bit overkill, but if you want a quad core CPU, take the i5.

    And also 4GB will also suffice for now, you can update to 8GB at a later time if you want, by buying 2x2GB RAM modules, as the iMac has four RAM slots.

    Magic Mouse
    Wireless keyboard if you don't need the NUM pad
    iWork, unless you are in full need of all of Excels capabilities
    If you need the APple Remote depends on you, I haven't used mine in over two years, but I use my iMac differently.
