Hi, this will be my first mac that I will be purchasing. I'm looking at the Base model for $1199.99 Core I3 4 GB Ram 500GB HDD. The main reason for the purchase is that me and the misses are expecting a baby in a few months time. Our friend has a MacBook and we seen the things she is able to do with Iphoto and the Ilife apps. That we think its perfect for us to use to work with photos and movies of our lil'one when she arrives. To go with that I game once in a while usually WoW which my laptop can handle somewhat but since its integrated GPU, its slow. It definately won't play Starcraft II. Since the Imac has a dedicated GPU that would be great. The Imac kinda helps me on all fronts. Sorry about the lil history there, but I wanted to give and accurate rundown of my needs for the Imac so that you guys can give me an accurate suggestion. Let me know if you think the base model would be ok/good/or great for my needs and if you think I need one of the higher models let me know and why. Appreciate the help and I hope to have my first Mac by the next few days!
