    1.
    Refurbished iMac 24-inch 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

    24-inch glossy widescreen display
    2GB memory
    320GB hard drive
    8x SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
    ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO with 256MB memory
    Built-in iSight Camera

    or
    new base 21.5" imac when refurb is available?

    their both the same price.

    or should I just buy a mini and find a cheap 24" monitor?

    How will you use the computer? What software to you use most?

    I haven't had a Mac before.
    I just started college, changing careers.
    Studying Computer Lan Security. That's an IT field, So not really sure what programs I will be using in the near future.

    Don't do much now except a lot of research, youtube, email, office. I rip cd's a lot. etc..

    Don't do much gaming, used to play everquest, might do that again during breaks. I'm not a big gamer but it would be nice to have that option if a new online game came out.

    My recommendation still stands.

    21" refurbs are already available, but you wont save much (if any) over the deal I posted (or any of the other deals at MC)
