First off, sorry for another iMac vs MacPro thread. However in my defense, each thread is sort of different as it applies to the OP's needs. I started posting here last week. I am a current Windows user who wants to make the transition to Macs. Before the announcement of the updated MacPro, I was pretty much set on getting the 24" iMac 2.4GHz model for $1799. Now, I'm not so sure. Here are my computing needs in no particular order: 1. Light to moderate gaming (some classics like Rise of Nations, KOTOR, WoW and possibly some new ones that may be released) 2. Office work (spreadsheets, word processing) 3. Web surfing 4. Photo & video for personal use (editing home movies, turning into DVD's, storing and organizing both photos and movies) 5. Video editing for professional use (was thinking of maybe doing this on the side for friends, family, etc. when and IF I like it and/or get good at it. Would be very basic in nature.) I currently have a nice display that I recently bought and still like (Samsung 216bw 21.6" WS LCD). I also have a decent 2.1 speaker system set. Some more background information: I have built my own PC's for the past 15 years so I am used to having more upgrade options or at least the chance for upgradeability. I can now configure a MacPro single quad core with the options (8800GT, wireless, 500GB HD) I need for $2649. Granted, this is around $850 more than I initially intended to put towards a Mac but I like that it is upgradeable, I love the 8800GT option and to me, the iMac just seems like a laptop built into a monitor (great for space saving, design, etc. just not sure I like it). So, my question is do you think I should go with the MacPro or iMac based on my needs and what I have been used to in the Windows world? Thanks!
