I am considering buying an Intel Mac (probably an iMac or mac pro) sometime after Mac OS X v10.5 "Leopard" is released, probably after both the iMac and Mac Pro come with it preinstalled. What my plan involves is getting at least 1 500 GB hard drive, partitioning it into 2 250 GB sections, installing Mac OS X on one, and Windows Vista on the other one. The reason I like the dual-boot solution is because the Windows programs I use performed abysmally under Virtual PC, and would probably not be much better under Parallels Workstation. I like the idea of getting a Mac Pro with 4 500 GB hard drives, installing Mac OS X on the first, Windows on the second, using the third for a Mac OS X backup drive, and the fourth as a Windows backup drive. However, I'd also need a display - I'd love the 30 inch model, but combined with all the other things in my ideal Mac Pro config, the price would be more than double that of the iMac (also in an ideal config). Any advice on the iMac vs. Mac Pro issue? By the way, I'm doing this to replace both my iMac G5 and my Windows PC with a single computer. It's possible that I'd make some of the purchase price back from selling those computers used... though I doubt I'd get much for the Windows PC, given the power supply burnout problem it had once.
