    Hi, i was thinking about selling my macbook pro and getting an imac as i havnt got an actual pc and would prefer one over a laptop.

    the MBP i have is 2.4 ghz intel core 2 duo. the screen size is 13.5

    the imac is this one

    here

    is that imac any good and worth getting?

    thanks

    i would mainly be using it to edit photographs in lightroom (one of the main reasons i want to upgrade is the bigger screen).
    if it would be powerful enough to run games i would play them on there but i really wouldn't care if it couldn't. that would just be a bonus.

    isn't this kind of topics supposed to be posted on the market place? (that's why I think you can't count on much respons)

    The Op doesn't want pricing advice, s/he want advice about a new iMac and how it would fare for her or his tasks.

    OP, the iMac will do fine with your stated computational needs, it will be even able to play a game or three.

    Thanks a lot guys. I have just seen a 21.5-inch: 2.5GHz i5 for just £70 more.

    Would that one be better than the 3.2GHz i3 i originally posted about?

    It would be better, as it has four cores instead of two (i3). But both machines will more than suffice your computational needs.
