My '06 intel iMac is sick and I'm about to make a move. I just use it for everyday stuff...iPhoto, internet, and watching movies. That being said, will I see that much of a difference between the current low-end iMac and what's about to come out. Not sure that sandybridge and thunderbolt are worth the wait. You can get a great deal on the 21.5" i3 RIGHT NOW on eBay/Macmall....for about $1040 plus free shipping (and no tax). What say you?
