    So I was thinking about getting the 3.06 iMac but I have last years iMac model 2.8ghz one.. ( early 2008 I believe? I got it in nov )I upgraded to 4GB already and I am only using 30 gigs out of the 300g, and I have a 1TB FW 800 hard drive hooked up to it..

    All i really use it for is to surf the web, ichat and download files..

    So should I buy the new one or keep my old one?

    It doesn't sound like what you do taxes the machine you have, so upgrading would not benefit your experience in any way.

    No, but you should consider downgrading to the new Mini :D

    Yeah man upgrade. The lag you'd experience while using safari and downloading on a 2.8GHz C2D must be unbearable.
