    well, money Is an object, but my macbook and pc's aren't cutting my urge for a 24in iMac..so...Not wanting to regret my choice, which processor speed is adedquate for imovie editing*planning on getting a good HD video camera later..and..do i really need the 3 year warranty on a desktop?....what would one add to an order preinstalled *need windows, so which version and would I be happier with boot, parallels, or VM and where is the best place to order for that*? Looking to stay under 2000 bucks..Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Bro your best bet is to get the 2.93, with the 4850 video card. U can buy the Applecare later on before the 1 year is over.

    U dont need to add options to install Windows on BootCamp.

    Agreed. I don't know much about graphics cards and HD editing, but I'm guessing the most expensive graphics card should do it. :rolleyes: It's the most bang for your buck without going past your limit. Wait to buy Apple Care until the last month of your year or it breaks. Ha

    2.93GHz with ATI card as others said. It's recommended to buy AppleCare for your Mac but you don't have to do it yet.

    I recommend Windows 7 RC1 because it's best Windows so far and it's free.
