I am trying to figure out which iMac would be most practical for my needs. Outside of the usual word processing and the web i plan to use this machine for the following: Occasional iMovie Frequent iPhoto Occasional Illustrator alternative drawings Netflix viewing Possible HDTV watching (eyeTV) would the Core2D be adequate? or i3? for basically $170 difference... it gets complicated when $260 is the difference between a 3.06 GHz CD2 and a 2.66 GHz i5 non-turbo( and non-hyperthreading?) It has also been brought to my attention that a new 27" display is $999, which means if i buy the $1270 CD2... i can just use it as a monitor with a future Mac with more power. Any thoughts out there?
