Okay, so a while ago I set out with a mission to save up my pennies for a new mac, because my iBook went down in a blaze of glory (It crispied two hard drives...) So, now I've finally got AUD $3300 to play with. Here's the base of what I was gonna buy... Specifications 2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 1GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM - 2x512 250GB Serial ATA Drive NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT 256MB SDRAM Apple Wireless Keyboard & Wireless Mighty Mouse + Mac OS X 24-inch widescreen LCD AirPort Extreme Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR A$ 2,964.50 (Being a uni student can be very tasty indeed.) Now what should I sink that extra $330 into? The processor upgrade costs $356, 2GB of Ram will cost $244 and the 500GB Hd'll cost $289... Now, do you guys reckon I'll get the most bang out of my buck for what, in particular? I figure the RAM will be easy enough to upgrade in the future (especially when 2GB chips drop in price), but the HD and Processor are a bit less upgradable... The other option is to save my holiday paycheque for another couple of weeks and get the 2GB of Ram + 500Gb Hd for $3500...beyond that I'm not going to get a new computer this year, and using this old iMac G3 is starting to drive me insane.... So...advice?
