I'm currently waiting for update on the iMac to purchase my first Mac. I want a 24" iMac with a wireless keyboard and mouse, a 500gb HD, 2gb RAM and AppleCare. I will also be getting MS Office Student/Teacher Edition. I will be on a budget of $2,100. Thats my problem. After my brother's education discount, the total price comes out as $2,558.95. Without the HD and RAM upgrades, the total cost would be $337 less ($2,221.95). Assuming the price of the iMac itself stays the same, about when do you think there will be HD and RAM upgrades? Or, if recent rumors are correct, when do you think an entirely new iMac will come out?
