Hello! I'm buying my first Mac in a couple of weeks time - VERY excited! I've asked so many different sales assistants in many different stores about what is the best option for me. Of course, they all have their own opinions - just as I'm sure many will here - however I won't be buying a Mac from anyone here, so I will trust the advice here a bit more. So far, I know I want the following: I want an iMac 27" 3.4GHz i7, 2GB Graphics. These are all definite. It's the RAM and Hard drive that I am unsure what to choose. I was originally going to get the 1TB Harddrive and 8GB RAM. Then I was going to get 2TB Harddrive and the 8GB RAM (or purchase it as 4GB and upgrade it myself to 8GB, or perhaps even 16GB. It looks fairly straight forward). But will I even NEED 2TB Harddrive, or is that a complete waste of money? What I use it for: I do the most amount of my work in Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop - I often run the 3 programs at once. I will be learning flash and web design too. I also enjoy gaming when I get the time. I plan to put a lot of apps on it as well. My current computer (PC) has the following: 3.1GHz Processor, 1TB Harddrive, 4GB RAM. It runs fairly well and it's about 2 years old now. Occasionally I get told "not enough memory to open this" - which I am assuming is due to the RAM? I get confused about the RAM and Harddrive. I guess my main questions are: - Is the 2TB Harddrive a waste of money? - Is it better for me to upgrade the memory myself, or should I get them to do it? - What RAM size would you recommend? Really appreciate advice. Thank you!
