I'll give everyone the short version... I can't afford a computer over $1000. My old ibook clamshell and old pc are starting to drag. I have a crappy, non-design, low paying, 40/week job, but try to freelance in my spare time...so I would like something with some zip to it. So, I saw on smalldog electronics that they have the low-end emac, refurbished, for $649. I also have a $170 worth of credit at best buy, so I could use that for more RAM and/or external cdrw. I check frequently and see that smalldog runs out of these emacs fairly quick. (on a side note check out my latest thread concerning smalldog.) So, should I go for this temporary emac upgrade, or should I wait til after WWDC? Will the entire line-up see major changes/price reductions? Once new machines are revealed will the emac also drop in price, or will an old powermac ever come down to under $1000? Of course I would love a new Powermac, but that's probably not going to happen for at least another year! Suggestions? Insider advise? Thanks!
