Well, finally sold and shipped off the old G5 and just made my online purchase of a new iMac! Got the education discount deal with the wife being in school, so we've go a free 8GB iPod touch (mail in rebate) on the way as well. Got the 3.06GHz model with the 500GB HD and NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS graphics card. Made sure to get the 3-year AppleCare as it was dicounted through the education package (only $119!) as well as added on the 500GB Time Capsule with wifi. It will act as both my new Time Machine backup drive and replace my old original (spaceship) Airport! Love the fact I can hook my printer up to it through USB and have a wireless printer! Also, made sure to buy 4GB RAM through Crucial to max this baby out. Looks like I won't get it until the end of this week, possibly as late as middle of next week. I am very excited and cannot wait to set everything up! Just wanted to share. This is my 4th Mac purchase over the past 6 years but its always an exciting experience. Thanks to many of you for helping in my decision making process and being able to read up so much about this specific model.
