    So i've chosen to sell off my old(ish) 17" iMac Intel Core Duo 1.83.
    It can't keep up to the workload i put on it (FCP, CS3, all that fun stuff).

    So I'm going to buy a new MacPro (whenever the choose to come out).

    The catch is...I dont have any other mac computers once I sell my iMac, so I will be using one of my dad's PC desktops (a good PC but still a PC).

    It's kinda sad, but in the end it will be worth the "sacrifice"
    Wish me luck with the POS they call Windows!

    If a new MacPro doesn't come out at MWSF 2008, I will most likely either buy an existing MacPro, or make myself a hack-intosh

    The Mac Pro won't really affect the value of your iMac, so why not hang on to it until the mac pro is released?

    I have someone that wants to buy my iMac in the next couple of days, otherwise, I have had noone interested in the iMac.

    My fiancé's father put it for sale in his store and noone was interested.

    It's not too big of a deal, I only do webdesign on CS3 right now mostly anyways. I just wont get to do my FCP and DVD's for a little while

    I sold mine last week. 1.83 core duo... I'm a little sad. I bought a 2.2 SR Macbook now. I'll get a new iMac next year I think... ooooh hmm a hackintosh eh? that DOES sound enticing... though I love the form factor of the imac I hate the weak sauce video card. At least for games it's weak sauce.

    So I sold my iMac.
    Now I do not have any Macs to use. It kinda sucks.

    Im using my dad's laptop right now.
    It suddenly feels like there is nothing to do in my room...even though I have a Nintendo Wii and a Nintendo DS...

    Time to countdown to the new MacPros (hopefully)

    I'd say. If I didn't have a Mac I'd probably just rather not use a computer much anymore.
