A few weeks ago I started a thread where I discussed how I wanted to convince my sister to get the new imac instead of a dell. Everyone was a lot of help, and now I am proud to say that she is going to get a mac. She isn't buying an imac though, she is getting a tower and the 15 lcd. I convinced her to go to compusa (we don't have any apple stores is wisconsin) to look at the imac with her boyfriend. The salesman convinced them that they should be purchasing a tower instead. The reason I never tried to have her buy a tower was because of the cost issue associated with a tower and an LCD screen. But she said that it was so cool that she wanted one anyway. I am having her buy the 733 mhz with the 15inch screen through the apple store via her teacher discount. That way she will only pay $1777 for the whole unit. I do have one question for this forum though. Do you know of any online stores like macmall or something that has any better deals on combos when you purchase a moniter and cpu. She wants to get a free printer or Ram. I am pretty sure her best bet is through the apple store since you get free shipping, the teacher discount, and the $50 instant rebate. But I would like to explore all of her options before her purchase. Thanks in advance.
