Hey I recently returned a 2.4Ghz 20" aluminum imac due to the washed out TN display. I do graphic work and the display was unacceptable. I'm at a loss of what to get next. It needs to have a high quality matte display. So I was looking at the old white 24" as a refurb model. But I don't want to downgrade unless I know it can do what I want it to do. It needs to be able to run Flash, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, and Photoshop very well. I also wish to do some casual gaming. Bioshock, Halo 2, Valve games on boot camp. A macbook pro is not out of the question, but the portability is not a must for me. Here are the specs of the refurb 24": Refurbished iMac 24-inch 2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo SuperDrive 24-inch widescreen display 1GB memory 250GB hard drive 8x SuperDrive (DVD+R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW) NVIDIA GeForce 7300GT with 128MB GDDR3 memory Built-in iSight camera Would that do what I want it to do as far as design and maybe the casual gaming I do as well? What kind of a speed difference would there be from the 2.16C2D and the 2.4C2D with the santa rosa chipset. Also would I be better off waiting until the macworld event in mid january? I know they are doing a macbook pro update but would they maybe offer a matte option on the new imacs? I'm very confused at this point please any help would be a godsend.
