Let me begin for the past years I'm a Windows user and now Windows is frustrating me by being slow and buggy; cann't get my work done fast enough. I really want to switch to a Mac and I have couple questions: 1. Can I get a student discount at the Retail Apple Store in the US? 2. Do you think the iMac will ever get quad core intel i7? 3. Do you think when Snow Leopard will be announced between May and June, will Apple again redesign/ update the iMac? Snow Leopard will take advantage of multicores. 4.I want to buy the iMac, I've been waiting for the updates for a while and Apple udated them, which is better the 20inch or 24inch iMacs what are the advantages and disadvantages?
