Hey everyone! I have always been a Windows user but I've been having problems lately and have been thinking about switching for a few months now. Other than my iPods I am completely new to Apple products and Macs, although I have worked with them in school. My current Dell laptop has lasted me 4 and a half years but I'd like to buy a mac before it dies, so I'm considering the iMac, and now that the BTS event is here, I want to make sure I have the right model to suit my needs, etc. These are the main things I want to be able to do: -Play a couple of games, The Sims 3 and Second Life. -Use the Adobe suite quite often (Photoshop and Illustrator mainly) with my Wacom tablet for art and graphic design work. -and possibly some light video editing in the future, but not right away, just an idea. Any advice would be great, this is the model I'm considering. 21.5-inch: 3.06GHz 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 1920 x 1080 resolution 4GB memory 1TB hard drive1 8x double-layer SuperDrive ATI Radeon HD 4670 graphics with 256MB Now, I don't know much about some of the technical things (like would the Intel core 2 duo as bad as some people make it out to be? Should I wait for WWDC, any idea if this iMac model is due for an update?) so any help would be great. I feel that the 27" is too big for my needs otherwise I would go for that. I guess I'm just looking for some general guidance since I haven't bought a new computer in quite a few years. Also, looking at the Sims 3 website for its system requirements, it looks like the video card on the lower end iMac model is supported and the one I listed above is not. Ug o.o I wanted this model because of the 1tb hard drive, but I guess I could always use an external. Anyway for the game: MAC OS X Supported Video Cards NVIDIA GeForce series 7300, 7600 8600, 8800 9400M, 9600M GT GT 120, GT 130 ATI Radeon™ series X1600, X1900 2400, 2600 3870 4850, 4870 Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) GMA 3-Series Sorry for the long post, I guess I need some advice/guidance. Any would be appreciated, thank you. Keep in mind money isn't the absolute deciding factor but I'd like to keep it under $2,000.
