    Well I was gonna get the new iMac, which did not come out.....:mad: Now, I'm looking at either getting a refurb iMac 2.8GHZ, or a new MacBook Pro. Which of these two has better gaming performance? Also if a new iMac/Mac Mini is on the way, how much longer do you think it would be? April like last year?

    Also if I buy a refurb iMac in a week or so, would that come with iLife 09?

    Too much money....I just had another question pop up too, does Apple return refurbs?

    Or any other good ideas for $1900 or so?

    Keep saving your money, and wait for a new iMac to released. Maybe you could buy an even better one then! :D

    That's what I'm doing. Maybe you could turn your PC into a hackintosh (based on the system in your sig) for the time being.

    The system in your sig will have better game performance than either of the Mac options you're considering.

    Last year, new iMacs were out in either late January or in February. Expect them around the same time this year as well.
