Well, just bit the bullet and bought a new iMac (24 inch, 2.4 gigs). What a beautiful, and functional machine. I am now fully converted to macs. I started out in june with a mac mini, than in december I got a MBP, and than today my Dell PC died, so I said f-it, and got the imac. Seems great so far without any issues. The only thing that I wish it had was a matte screen the equivalent of the Apple Cinema Display. Ive now realized that if one does not do extensive gaming, a mac is really the best computer out there, alot less hassles than windows, things are much easier to do (seems like the same task takes twice as long on a PC than it does on mac), and everything is done in such a logical way. I really just dont understand the widespread appeal that windws based machines have, or microsoft products in general. Probably sounds nerdy, but Im gonna put an apple sticker on my car.
