I purchased c2d, and to be honest the processor speed is fine, However ive got an issue with the screen so im taking it back tomorrow and going to get the i5 as its always been in the back of my mind on wanting one!!What do you plan on doing with your computer? Are you upgrading from something? If so, what?
Hi, I'm a new Mac user the 27" c2d iMac is my first mac, so far I love it, sooo
much better than my old PC - but thats another story.
I use it for all the basics email,surf,iTunes etc plus photo editing with PSE & basic video editing using iMovie. Everything I want to do it seems to do with ease, I have has no complaints from the kids (who use garageband a lot) or the wife (most important !)
I have had no problems other than the Safari "multi window" (sorry can't remember the correct name) graphics going weird when selecting a web page, but the 10.6.2 update sorted it. .
My only concern was is the screen too big ? - Not a chance, so glad I didn't get the 21". Sorry waffled a bit, summary c2d plenty of power for my use
