I've owned PC's since the mid 90's and have started looking at Apples, the iMacs mainly. I purchased my last computer close to 6 or 7 years ago. I'm not much of a computer weenie so I know very little about specs and which processor is better than the other, if it isn't just a speed difference. I know what RAM does and I know a bigger HD is not a bad idea. I've thought about a MBP but typically, the computer sits in one spot and doesn't move. The all in one iMac will allow some movement in the house but not onto anyones lap... Regardless; - I don't play much in the way of games - I like to mess with video editing, mainly just home videos of the family - I do like to back up movies that I have and have started getting more Blu-Ray movies - problem with iMacs and BD's? - What will i7 get me over i5 and what is this referring to? - Quadcore? - Recommendations on which iMac? Thanks ...... and be gentle.
