Hey all: In a bit of dilemma here, but don't have to decide right now. I plan on purchasing in May. Here's my situation: I have approximately $600 dollars to spend, plus if I get a new computer I can sell my old iMac for $400-500, making approx. $1000 total. I've toyed around with several options: 1) Buy an iPad - I would get the 16GB 3G+WiFi version. $629. Done. 2) Buy a new iMac - I would get the base 21.5" model, refurb for $999. I have 2GB of RAM I can add to it to make 6GB total, plus the 3.06GHz C2D processor is considerably better than my 2.0GHz C2D. 3) Buy a Mini - I would get the 2.53GHz version. $749 plus monitor(s). I like this because I can get dual, matching monitors. However, the iMac is a faster machine and can use up to 16GB of RAM. And its prettier, IMO... 4) Buy a Macbook (or MBP). Not sure which - I have a Windows laptop (Acer 5534), so if I did this I'd probably keep my white iMac and sell the Acer. 5) Any other ideas? Suggestions are greatly appreciated! Again, not in any hurry, b/c I won't have access to the money until May (after our summer vacation, to make sure its paid for!). EDIT: Just to help everybody out, my current iMac really isn't too bad performance-wise, I'd mostly just like the larger screen. However, I do bump into my 3GB RAM max. occasionally when multitasking (like running Word, iPhoto, Safari, and Photoshop - or just Vista in VMWare Fusion ) That's why I'd thought of a new computer (iMac, Mini, or MB). I also like to couch-browse - that's really the only reason I use my Acer laptop. That's why I'd considered the iPad. And the 3G would be nice, too, since I don't have an iPhone (my phone is paid for by my work, so beggars can't be choosers... ).
