hi folks. first of all, i have to say i v been in that waiting game for a while. according to my research on some previous prediction threads from past few years, i m glad to see that apple always laughch their new products at a 'unexpected time'. i hope this fall they will do the same , hopefully in early september. my mbp just broke down lately, and this time i was planning to go for a imac coz it wasnt so great to do video editing work when i was on mbp although many ppl may think differently. especially when i use visualhub , take ages to convert those tons of video clips. i m not much a pro mac owner, although i v been with mac for almost 3 years. so, i dont know much about hardwares or how does each part affect my work. as you know, 2000 dollars pc can be super fast , i wonder if it can run os x perfectly as mac does? also, i have not used a imac to do what i do , will it be doing much better than mbp? and how much? if not, i d go for a mbp which just released not long ago. p.s i dont play games, i surf alot, edit videos, web design,mb some time PS. thx very much for your suggestion.
