I've decided that I'm going to wait to get a new iMac until the Nehalem architecture is unveiled and starts appearing in iMacs AND Snow Leopard is officially released. To me it looks like these things could arrive at about the same time... what do you guys think? Nehalem first? Snow Leopard first? Simultaneous launch of both? (That third option would be REALLY cool, in my opinion.) Also, anyone else doing what I'm doing? I'm debating over whether to jump as soon as the conditions are met, or to wait until the first iMac revision after Snow Leopard. If Snow Leopard comes first, then my criteria may end up being met when this happens anyway. On the other hand, if Nehalem comes first, I kinda don't want to be stuck with a Mac that has one of those drop-in Mac OS X upgrade discs.
