    How about a more fleshed out BTO option?? :apple: will just make another iMac that may have great features, but the configuration just isn't right for people. I've been reading on these forums about how the graphics cards in these machines are crappy (which they are), for such an expensive computer where everything else in it is top-of-the-line. I think it would be better if people didn't feel confined to the 3-4 choices Apple gives them. Anyone agree?

    agreed...and this would probably happen except for one thing...its apple. Only place this will ever happen is the mac pro page where the bto choices are already extensive with a large quantity of options.

    Because deep down, apple only wants your money therefore they want people to just give in and pay $3k+ for a Mac Pro:D

    Like the majority of people, I voted for the third one, simply because that would be great. However, in the real world, if I had to choose, I would definitely choose the first one. I would love the ability to get a better graphics card without spending $200 more. Or just make the BTO options a little more extensive. Such having only 2 models; 20 and 24 inch. There you configure them to whatever they can hold (graphics card, CPU, hard drive, etc). That would be much better than spending so much more money just to get one feature you wanted and maybe some you didn't.

    Wouldn't it be great if the music player on the Cybershot phones had as many features as the player on the Walkman line?
    Yeah. Isn't gonna happen though, unfortunately, even though it mightn't take much to change it.
