I was planning on getting the 20" iMac with my EDU discount until they announced the single processor 1.8 PowerMac. My brother in laws friend has a friend who works at Apple who can get me his friends and family discount or whatever it is. He can get the PowerMac 1.8 for $1274 and a 20" Cinema Display for $999. I am thinking that is a screaming deal over the iMac just for the expandability alone. He can't get a discount on the iMac yet because it is on backorder (3-4 weeks). I don't plan on using the high end pro apps (Motion, etc.), but will be doing work with Final Cut, Soundtrack, etc. where the iMac might struggle down the road with the video card. I am thinking with the money I save on the PowerMac it will be a better investment. What do you all think?
