Originally, I wanted a Mac Pro as it has everything I want - but then reality stopped in and I realized it was just too pricey for my needs. Then I looked at the mini, tho underpowered and for a little more, I could get a Macbook. I do some home video dv editing and alot of photo work with RAW files and photoshop (I'll make a lot of use of iphoto, imovie, maybe final cut express, and idvd as well). The 2ghz MB looked like a good solution but the video ram isn't good for gaming and it has a small internal drive - so I thought I'd just keep my existing PC as a gaming rig. I also like the idea of the portabliity factor. Then I looked at the 20" iMac again. I initially passed b/c I already have a 20" widescreen LCD. Then I learned I could hook it up to the iMac and extend my desktop. Plus have a dedicated 256mb video card and bigger internal hard drive (I have a 500gb drive I'll use as external). This piqued my interest - do I really need dual monitors? Do I really want the portabliity of the MB in exchange for some of the downgrades? How good is this imac for gaming on windows? I'd prefer to ditch the PC and just dual boot. I'm going to wait and see if a couple of announcements come out over the next couple of weeks - that may make the decision easier. Ugh.
