This is a follow-up to a thread I posted a couple weeks ago. I'm a photographer... and from what I read, the iMac displays - while not as amazing as top-end Eizo displays and such - are pretty decent... and the iMac would be much more economical for me. So... Heres what I have now: Pretty fast PC running WindowsXP that gets malware/virus attacks non-stop, and has me at my wits end. 500GB internal RAID 24-inch apple cinema display (about 3 years old) 1TB RAID NAS 1.5TB RAID via firewire (LaCie) Dell XPS laptop running windows Vista... fewer virus problems. Heres my possible new Mac setup: 27 inch iMac with i7 processor & 1TB internal guess at $2500 (will have to get this quoted) 2TB time machine $500 (to backup the iMac, wifes iMac, and Macbook can it backup all 3?) 1TB RAID NAS I know this will work with the Mac 1.5TB RAID via firewire (LaCie) pretty sure this will work with the Mac Sell the Dell laptop & cinema display -$500 or hopefully more I might give this to someone instead. Macbook $1000 (appears to support 1080p output which I need for presentations) So thats $3500-$4000, plus maybe $500 in software to go mac. Or, I could go with a new PC running windows 7 for less than half that much. My main issue is that although Im technically adept, I just dont have time to futz around with everything to make sure it all is working all the time. Im spending too much of my time lately doing that, and sick of it, and think a lot of my problems will go away if everything is under one brand. So am I nuts? Missed anything? Any other thoughts? Anyone know how aged the current iMacs are, and when they might get a facelift?
