Hey everyone. So as some of you might know, that I have a 20" 2.0ghz Alu iMac, which i bought to replace my (fairly new) Desktop. Since Apple is kindly accepting returns for any mac products purchased between Oct.31-Dec.24th, till Jan.8, I've been considering returning my iMac. Now before you say "WHY WHY?" I have a few reasons. 1. I've been using a PC...ever since i was 2. It's hard for me to adjust to Mac all of a sudden. Personally, I find that using an iMac for work is annoying. Im used to having multiple things open when I'm working, and the dock is annoying place for me to have to goto constantly (I personally think that a bar at the bottom is better than a dock). Also iWork sucks (no offense) and MS Office 04 is slow because of Rosetta. 2. My iMac hums like a mofo. I also am getting annoyed by getting random black screens (not kernal panics) also the Gradient thing isn't an issue now, but when i start taking Comm Tech next semester, where i gotta work in photoshop alot...it might become a pain. 3. Gaming...oh good ol macs and games. Well i can say, that the iMac is way more powerful than my old Desktop, but having to restart constantly when my buddies want to play CS or WoW is a pretty annoying. And then of course, there's Crossover, I dont know about other people here, but playing CS and halflife..I run into this weird mouse lag, thats not even mentioning the random freezes, and exiting issues i run into while using it. So I've come to the conclusion, that the iMac isnt for me. But as i don't want to get rid of a mac all together, I want to get something in its place. Because I have to admit, using Mac OSX is amazing. Everything just flows so well. and everyone in my family loves it. (my sister refuses to use the PC's in our house now ) So what im going to do now, is return the iMac, get my desktop back, and use it for all the work, and most of my gaming. but that leaves me with, what im going to do to replace the mac goodness. so here are my options. 1. Buy a NEW SR MacBook from Apple with 2.2ghz Processor 2. Buy a USED non-SR Macbook Pro not from apple, comes with a 90 day warrenty , with 2.16ghz Core Duo processor, a X1600, and 1gb of ram Now the thing is, since I DO game, and i would definetly like to be able to game on the go. I don't have a Ridiculous requirement. A game that runs at 30 fps would be excellent for me. So I'm wondering, which option would be better for running Games like, CS Source and WoW. Because i know the X1600 is better for gaming, because it is dedicated, but it is older than the X3100, and the X3100 is still not to its full potential because of driver maturity. It also comes down to Price, the Used MBP cost more than the new MB. What do you guys think i should do?
