Well, I do not yet own a mac...although I know pretty pretty much all the ins and outs of a mac since I use everyone elses. Anyway, I want to finally purchase my first mac but I am curious to hear how everyone feels about the Nehalem processors that are supposed to be coming up early 2009. I have been doing a lot of research lately to see what iMac I should get and at the moment it seems like the 2.8 is the best deal....but at the same time these next processors are supposed to be amazing. I would assume apple would jack the price on these processors when they come out, but I just want to hear from people that know more than me and see if I should buy an iMac now or wait. As far as my needs are concerned, I dont HAVE to have a mac right now, but since I don't have a mac at all it would be nice to get one at some point instead of just saying I'll wait until next year. Also I had a question with buying ram. On the apple store they give you two sticks of 1G for the 24'....so the question is, is it cheaper to buy the extra two gigs from them or just get rid of the two 1 gig sticks and buy two extra two gig sticks. I thank everyone in advance for my mission on getting a new mac. I am just thinking that for the money it might not be a bad time to buy since the new update lowered the price a little bit and by the time the new processors come around it may be quite expensive. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm open to speculation. This also doesn't have to be about me and my quest for a mac either. I really don't know much about the Nehalem processor so I am also interested in hearing about that. Thanks!
