Ok so here's the scoop. I am in the market for a mac desktop. I have been fighting the urge to purchase a new iMac... mainly because all I am asking of this desktop is mucho storage space, web surfing, itunes, dvd playback... and I could stand to save some cash. Currently in my line up of machines: PIII Compaq Evo (everyone needs one windows machine!) 12inch pbook 1.33ghz maxed out ram, super drive, 60gb 15inch pbook 1.25ghz 512mb, super drive, 80gb (i feel in love with this machine... it's older than the 12 inch but man... i love it and it was free!) And... that's it. All laptops. I miss having a desktop setup, the 15 inch is my primary machine. Now to the questions... It looks like a used PowerMac may be the best choice... Boy oh boy, I started looking into this... and there is a lot of information... Kinda overwhelming... here are some basic questions... any advice is greatly appreciated... 1) Main purpose for this unit is to store lots of itunes music and data... I need a machine that will recognize hdds over 120gb... i hear there are work arounds for the pre quicksilver machines... (am i correct?) 2) I don't need a blazing machine by any means, but i do want a zippy enough one... i don't need a machine that displays itunes coverflow in all it's coverflowed glory... but i would like a mahine that handles itunes and basic web task... 3) Would it be better to grab a dual processor? or a slight higher mhz single? 4) I am also considering selling/trading the powerbook 12inch. I mean i love the machine... it was my first mac... but i never use it... i only hold onto it because it was the first and it still has apple care until dec 07. If i did trade/sell this...then i would want a newer iMac... i'd probably front some money. I have thought about doing the 12 inch with a display... but eh, not my thing. So... ANY suggestions would be much appreciated. BTW, great forums! I have been lurking for so long! This may be my first post even. Internet intimidation. Thanks!
