    I've been waiting for the new mac pro model to come out for awhile now. However, given the price increase and other situations, I'm not sure I'm going to be able to buy it right now. So I think I might buy the 2.8g 24 inch iMac to tide me over for at least 6 months. I'll max out the RAM from OWC. So, if I buy the $2299 model and max out the ram, how much value will it retain in 6-8 months?

    Also, I just graduated in December. Would I still be able to use an education discount? Just how far do they go to verify? Thanks for all the info.

    If you want to know a fairly accurate value in that time period, look on ebay for auctions that ended on Mac products 1 year ago. I am pretty sure you will get more than 50% back especially if there isn't a new iMac that comes out before you sell it.

    Yeah, they still hold value pretty well. Still need to find out about the discount.
