Hey all,

Well, the night before the new iMacs were introduced, I purchased a 20" widescreen LCD panel to be paired with my 17" iMac right now. I didnt think a 23/24" iMac would come out, and I told myself if it did it would be out of my price range.

In any case, the LCD arrived yesterday, and I hooked it up to my 17" iMac... looks great.

Well, here lies the problem. I just sold my powerbook , which takes me about 75% to the 24" iMac... and I will be selling my 17" iMac to finance the other part.

Do I keep the 20" Widescreen? Will a 24" and 20" on my desk look a bit TOO excessive?

:X

I would purchase the 20" and max it out as much as you can afford. I am pretty sure u can even get the 2.33Ghz on the 20". with the 20" and a 20" display you will be pretty well off in my opinion.

If you are raising the money through selling your older machines and do not need to use the money for another purpose, then I would definitely get the 24" iMac.

You will get better graphics hardware, which is always useful. FireWire 800, which if you do not already have a use for you may do in the future. More screen space to work with. Larger screen for watching DVDs or similar media - important if you are watching from a distance.
