Sorry i know you guys must hate seeing this kind of posts.. but spare me! I am a noob. I am an expertise when it comes to specs (I am a girl) I have a PC desktop for all my life and a Macbook in which i purchased for college last year. I have had enough of windows (finally) and am hoping to switch to Mac completely. I am looking to buy the 21.5" because I can't afford a 27" (plus it would be too big for my room anyway) My friends keep telling me to wait (mainly guy friends) for the update (i know its coming soon.. say in a few months or so) because they keep saying that Core2Duo would be phased out in an year or so... and the curreent imac models would be outdated or something... I mainly use my desktop for basic stuff like school work, presentations, report writing, listening to music, surfing and what not I do a lot of photo editing too.. i.e. lightroom photoshop and stuff. and yes, i am entitled to the BTS promotion that is going on right now. so here comes the question: should i wait for the update/refresh? or would that make no difference to a user like me? I dont mind not having the free itouch i dont really need it .. though it would be nice to be able to sell it off or something... suggestions?
