    Hiya guys, I'm planning on buying my first iMac, the 27 quad i5. The only thing I'm not sure about is if I want a 1tb hdd or a 2tb. You see I am planning on putting loads of games, music and videos/tv shows on there and am nervous that 1tb just mitt not be enough but if I get the 1tb it means I will save £100 (with student discount). Any advice would be great, cheers.

    I don't think it really matters. You can always get external storage or upgrade the internal capacity in the future for pretty much the same price.

    Most people only have 20GB of data. Your games will take up 160GB. Movies can be stored externally

    Yeah that's a good point, I can just save £100 and buy some more storage when I need it and prices are lower. Cheers guys.
