Last night I was checking out G5 iMacs on ebay, found a nice deal (it had good specs and a lot of software). I was about two seconds from hitting buy it now, when I chickened out and started looking around the web. Anyway at B&H Photo I found the new iMac core 2 duo (stock) for the same price as the auction and I got it, on a whim (horrors). As you can see in my signature this is an upgrade from one of the first mini's. It has served me well but isn't quite keeping up anymore. I will be giving it to my mother, along with my display and isight. She is a very light user and the mini will be a great upgrade from her 7 year old HP desktop and crt! So okay, what worries me is first off buying not from apple! I don't know what I was thinking. Was this really stupid? I did get applecare, but I just fear that if something goes wrong apple is going to tell me to go to B&H (and I know they aren't going to help me). ?? I'm also nervous about buying it stock. But even as stock, I should see a nice boost from my 1.42ghz mini right? And I think I can always upgrade the ram later right? I'm not a gamer, I just do some photo editing, web, email, tv (I have the TVMax), etc. My goals with the iMac are less beach balls, a superdrive, compatibility with leopard and at the version following that, the ability to handle more multitasking, and just snappier response than I am currently getting. Alright, enough from me. Thanks very much to anyone that reads this, and helps to hopefully ease my mind!
