Hi, First time poster, so apologies for any newbie mistakes and as I know very little about iMacs any glaringly stupid things I may ask here. I am very close to changing my pc (running Vista with MS Office, Hand-break, DVDfab, playing WOW from time to time and other minor applications). My problem is that as I am a child of "windows" I am not sure how to work out what I should get as the iMac replacement. I went to my local Apple store this morning, mainly to try out using iWorks with my documents (word/excel/powerpoint) to see if they were okay, or if I should go for Microsoft Office for Mac (looks like Microsoft Office because of some of the functions / layout etc). I had sort of decided that the machine I would get would be:- 27-inch iMac 2.93ghz Quad Core Intel Core I7 8gb SDRAM 2TB Hard Drive Talking to the guy in the shop though, and he was more, no, the starter entry iMac would be better for you, i.e. 21.5-inch iMac 3.06GHz Intel Core i3 4gb SDRAM 500GB Hard Drive + 2TB Time Capsule And with the "Apple care" and the "one to one" training / support that is a lot better than buying the "biggest" machine. So I'm confused... My old Windows teaching was to buy the biggest/fastest machine you can afford... But the Apple store seems to be going down the line of "well all of the iMacs are so much better than a PC (and they very well maybe) that you just have to worry about what you want to use it for and for general 'Home use' with a little video editing the "starter" machine is more than good enough for you.". But he did seem to be pushing both the "applecare" and "one to one" (mentioned them a good half a dozen times in our 20 minute chat). I thought I'd be better off talking to people who have iMacs and what their experience / suggestions are. So here I am and any advice or comments would be more than appreciated. Thank you. J.
