imac G5 without question!skubish said:
If your objective is to be able to run Mac OS as inexpensively as possible- get the Mac mini, and go to a PC store for monitor, mouse and keyboard.skubish said:
I'd actually say Mini. Buy a monitor and keyboard (keyboard cost all of 20 dollars), and then upgrade your Mini when you need to, without having to pay for a monitor you already have. It sounds like all you're going to use it for is the internet and little things to me. If you want it for bigger projects, then the iMac might be a better deal, but that's not the vibe I'm getting from you.skubish said:
iMac all the way, and here's why....skubish said:
No, the 20" iMac panel is slightly lower spec from what I've heard. To me it was a painfully beautiful screen. Just gorgeous.skubish said:Is the display on the 20" iMac the same as the 20" cinema display?
Also does anyone know the detailed specs on the iMac 17" and 20" displays? Such as contrast ratio, response time, etc.
Thanks for your help

Maby you are correct about that but not sureDont Hurt Me said:The imac uses stretched version of Lcds. The 17 is a 15 stretched to 17 so they call it a widescreen 17 in reality its smaller then a normal 17 just as the 20 is a stretched 17 and is smaller then a real 20 ". I think thats right.
Uh, no, that's not right. Look at the resolutions. 20" = 1680x1050. Identical.Dont Hurt Me said:The imac uses stretched version of Lcds.
