Hi there - New to the forum and been reading through all the threads discussing the new iMac line but have a few questions regarding configuration options: Few points about my likely usage: -I run a small web-site business, owning and operating about 20+ sites, mostly poker/gambling related. I do all my own site design/editing where possible, and would like to begin getting more involved in video/flash editing on this new computer. -I play poker professionally and although I understand most poker programs do not use much in the way of resources, I do have as many as 20+ games going at once regularly. -I often have multiple browsers open at the same time. -I run some large databases from time to time. -I have very little patience and like everything to happen as fast as possible. -I have decided to get the best model I possibly can, as I spend upwards of 100hrs a week on the computer, and it is my only real business expense, so it is clearly not an area to be frugal. So with that being said, I have already decided I am definitely getting the 27" 2.93GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7. The only decisions to be made are which options to add. Right now I am leaning towards going the whole hog and getting the 2TB Serial ATA Drive + 256GB Solid State Drive as from what I have seen around the internet this seems to have a massive impact on speed, especially in starting up applications, and would presumably result in me having no lag at all when multitasking. I would also like to upgrade the ram - maybe to 8GB, but if I go with 8GB should I get the 2x4GB or the 4x2GB - is there a notable difference in performance? From what I have read it seems that keeping the other bays free in case I want to add more in future is the main reason to go with the 2x4GB option - is this the case? So with the SSD+2TB and 8GB of ram, would that be a good match? Or should I be considering going all out and getting the 16GB ram too? I am fine with spending the money if it will be worth it, but I sometimes have a habit of getting carried away in situations like this and buying lots of options I dont really need. If that is the case maybe someone can talk me in off the ledge? LOL Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance, PokerGuy P.S For the last few months while waiting for the new iMacs to come out I have been using a PC - yes I know..... My old Mac just wasnt cutting it any more (Old powerbook) and I needed an interim computer to get me through.
