    I just wanted to proclaim my excitement that I have just bought a new 24in 3.06ghz iMac. The only option was bumping the 500Gb HD to 750Gb. I'm psyched! This is my second mac, before I had a MacBook Air. I think the two will be beautiful together.

    I plan on having be a general consumer workhorse: downloading, re-encoding video, internet, itunes, etc, as well as some windows gaming through bootcamp.

    Is there anything I should watch out for or be even more excited about?

    HAHAHA congratulations on your new iMac, the only other thing I would say you should look into getting would be maxing out the ram. I would recommend doing that through Newegg and getting Patriot ram, its the only ram I buy and I have used it in 4 Macs and 2 Dells, and its never given me any problems!!!

    Ram is OS X best friend, more so than CPU at times.

    8 Gb RAM

    There is this thread over in the MBP Forum, where people report their success in installing 8 Gb RAM in the MBP.

    Has anybody tried this out on an iMac?

    Is there some advantage over Patriot RAM?

    I ordered cheap RAM from Crucial and it's working perfectly. I've used Crucial for all my memory upgrades and never had a problem with them.

    I just like Patriot, I got bad ram from Crucial a few years back and have never tried using them since. They refunded my money, but I just never tried them again.
