oh boy the 20incher would be a beauty to buy but its just way to much money for me lol. any ways.. im gonna sell my desktop pc and get about 700 for that, plus some money i have saved and a few other paychecks. i have a few questions about the imac though.. i realise rosetta is going to slow down my performance in photoshop, but i can wait for when photoshop goes universal. question is.. will i be able to do simple tasks such as retouching etc with little low performance? how well will pro aps like final cut and aperture run on one of these new machines .. i mean, is an imac good / decent for pro aps.. also, whats the largest resoloution on the 17inch imac? thanks for all of your help!!!
