    I'm dying to get a new iMac, being a PC user, I want to switch.
    Will the prices come down in the next few months?
    Can I settle for a 20 in or splurge and get the 24 inch.
    Also, can I install a windows XP professional version that came with one of my old pc's or will I have to buy a new copy of windows?

    THanks for your help

    Buy now. We won't see update in 6 months. Yes, you can use any version of Windows above XP

    I'd definitely go with the 24" rather than the 20" if you can afford it. I guarantee you will be very glad you did :)

    I second that! I love my 24" and couldn't imagine being on a 20" now. If you can afford it, definitely go with the larger option. I would also go with the best video card you can afford too. Memory you can add yourself.

    GL with the switch. I never regret switching 1.5 years ago. Only regret was, I wish I did it sooner :)

    Definitely go to the 24" and definitely buy now. Prices aren't going to drop much, if any.. and a new model won't be announced until November to January at earliest.

    Go for it NOW! I would most definitely go for the 24" model over the 20" - big difference in screen quality.
