I now have a 20 inch 2GHz imac (non intel). I love it. But I am getting pretty excited about the Panasonic HMC150 camcorder which requires Intel only mac. I have been checking out imacs in forums and have encountered a large amount of people who have new imacs that have a serious left - right screen problem of dark on one side, light on the other. Many have been returned to Apple for replacement and still have the same problem. Many Apple techs will admit it, others tow the Apple line. So, I am a little skittish about the whole deal. No matter what I purchase I will use my Pantone color spyder for screen calibration. In trying to save money I have heard from a number of people that Dell Ultra Sharp is very good in 20 or 22 inch. My general idea is to possibly skip imac and go Mac Pro with a Dell display or maybe another brand of display. Any ideas? Anyway, those are my thoughts for the moment.
