    I am saving up for an apple, but the question is if i will have enough money to get a good system. I was wondering if anyone knows anywhere that I can get a discount apple products, or if you or anyone you know who owns a store that sells apples would be willing to give me a discount to help me, as a student, to start my career in film production?

    A cardboard box.
    Wait until early January. Those iMac updates may be worth it. The powermac is also nice, but pricey. Apple has its own student discounts posted online.

    Well, I am not a college student yet, and I would much rather get a PowerMac bacuase the expansion would be great for video editing.

    same. an imac would have been great for me, 17" of glorious screen, BUT, i am going into audio engineering and looking at some of the digidesign gear. the best value for money has a pci card. so i had to spend the money and get a pmac. not that i regret it. an extra processor, they both are 67mhz faster than the imacs, and to top it all off, i o/c them to 1ghz, with the purchase of PC2700 memory from a pc retailer.

    the memory cost less than the price differnece between my machine and the DP1ghz above it.

    no need for big graphics. spent the spare cash on a SD upgrade and a 20GB HD upgrade at purchase time.
