    Hello Guys :)

    I'm switching over from PC to Mac finally. I work out of my home as a full time web designer and I'm wanting to get something powerful for my home office.

    I will be running CS4 and really nothing else besides the normal programs of course like word, excel etc. I also like to watch movies on my computer as well which is why I like the 24 inch model, not really looking for anything portable.

    So my question is with a $2500 budget will the imac 3.04ghz be good enough to meet my needs? http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_mac/family/imac?mco=MTE3MDQ it's the $2199 model.

    And on another note, do you guys think apple will be dropping the prices on these soon for newer models? If so what do you think the price drop would be? If it's more than $200-300 I would wait, but if not I'll go buy one next week.

    Thanks!

    Yes it will be good enough for your needs.

    There is a rumored price drop in fall but no one can confirm this.

    Thanks for the reply, I talked to apple today and asked about the price drop but of course they didn't know anything and I doubt they would tell me to begin with lol.
