Ok. About a month ago my 3 month dropped MBP died. like bye bye died. $1200 repair. My bday is in 10 days. And i NEED a computer. Friend of mine is selling a iMac 20'' 4g ram (from crucial). Leopard. 2ghz core 2 duo recently replaced 250hd from apple he is selling it for about 860 shipped. Which thats not a bad price. Its also within my current budget to NOT put me into debt. Or should i wait for the new Imac. I'm assuming this computer will have a firewire 800 port? I record music demos for my band. I use logic Pro 8. I use a firewire interface. I'm just trying to justify around $870 for this machine. Or around 2x that for a new imac that will have almost another 1.00ghz in processor speed. Possible bigger HD. And possibly the 24'' will be the entry level size (my personal hope ) Thanks for any help.
