I think you'll get depressed when you start to think about how much time you let pass without upgrading...

Good luck anyway. It's great being able to run OSX and windows on one machine. Save you from switching between machines, and with parallels or vmware you don't even have to reboot!

You'll love your new iMac and you'll soon be drawn fully into the darkside (macside?) of computing :)
