Alright, here lies my situation. I have a Macbook air 13", brand new, I absolutely adore it. It's a great great machine. Having this mac makes me want a beautiful (god are they beautiful) make desktop, but I have a relatively new desktop PC that is in all honestly more powerful than the iMacs, and being a PC is very upgrade friendly. Herein lies my dilemma. I LOVE the iMac for it's display, having OSX is a bonus, but I don't know how much I would benefit from the updates specs because I would want to play a game or two on it, and the iMac is (and lets be honest here) bottlenecked at the GPU, and not upgrade friendly. SO, here are my options I've mapped out. Spend 1699 + tax and buy a 27" iMac. I'll have OSX on a larger screen, and the ability to use it as a monitor for my MBA (current Graphics on PC doesn't have mini display port, only DVI and VGA) OR, spend 979 + tax on a 27" ACD and be able to use my MBA and my PC on it (would become my PC native monitor.) Regardless, my current PC monitor is 3 years old and I'm ready to upgrade that. If I buy the monitor alone, I would be able to buy an additional 8GB's ram, as well as a Radeon 6870 Graphics card, which has Mini Display Port, allowing me to run the ACD and being a HUGE improvement over any card apple is currently offering (and almost guarenteed will be offering in the next refresh) all while being under 1350 total. That would bring my PC to 3.8ghz Dual Core, 12GB ddr3-1333, Radeon 6870 1GB ddr5, and of course the beautiful ACD. So, which option do you guys think? I do love the idea of an iMac, but don't know So basically, it's 1699 for an iMac 27", or around 1350 for 27" ACD and new components for my PC. Either way the MBA would work. Sorry if that was confusing, it was to me.
