I've been milling over the 24" iMac for a little while now. I was gearing up to wait for Montevina, in the hopes that the cards would be updated, etc. All this because I intend to do a little gaming. However, I sat back for a moment and did some thinking. When all is said and done, I'd be spending $2200+ on a top of the range iMac, just to get mediocre gaming performance (at best). After doing a little research, I found that for that much money, I could buy the base Mac mini for all my OSX duties (surfing the net, email, documents, etc), and use the remaining $1600 or so to buy a DVI/USB switch (http://www.gefen.com/kvm/product.jsp?prod_id=3113), and build up a PC gaming rig that would smoke an iMac into oblivion. With the switch, both computers would use the same monitor and keyboard/mouse. This is for sure the direction I'm now going to go. Although the idea of having a Mac that could do it all is very appealing, I'd be cheating myself if I got an iMac. In fact, overall I'd pay more for the 24" iMac with a copy of Vista than I would for the aforementioned setup. After years of Mac-only, having a PC back in the stable is going to be a bit disquieting. However, it will be games only...that's it. I cannot stand using a windows machine for anything but games these days.
