Understandably , most of the excitement is centered around the 27" with quad core ...I'm not a techie . In fact , I'm one of the " basic user " crowd , who up until now has used Windows exclusively . I'm ready to pull the trigger on a base iMac , but would like to hear more opinions on it . I have not ruled out a PC , but like countless other PC users am tired of messing with Windows - if it is to my advantage to do so . I would love to hear from any and all re: the basic iMac computer - + and - . I am a computer dum dum , so cut me some slack and be gracious . Best regards from an American in Japan .
