I currently have 2007 black macbook 2.2 ghz. I am going to keep it until I just dont want to use it anymore. But those new iMacs are so tempting and I am infatuated with them. Of course I dont have the money to buy a quad core or 27'' inch iMac. I do like trying to futureproof my products so I can use them for a long time and make sure that they are compatible with stuff. Anyways, what I wanted to ask is, is it annoying to plug in your iPod to the iMac when the USB is in the back? I don't want that hassle, if it is. I dont know, I might just be infatuated with these new products. Is it good to get an iMac?! I would most likely get the base iMac 21''. The most I do is iTunes, some movie-watching, internet surfing, and word documents (papers for college). I usually don't move my macbook around that much. I do movie around the apt sometimes but mostly sitting on desk. Thanks for any advice.
