    i am a little unsure what machine would suit my needs best, i was thinking the 21.5 imac with 256 graphics card, i will be doing a little bit of hd video editing, playing sims 3, photoshop, after effects, and all the rest of the normal stuff.just worried about the yellow tinge thing and the bad hds?

    I wouldn't worry! The 256mb graphics card is perfect for your needs. This iMac will serve you, well.

    Good luck,

    21.5" iMac is a Sleeper Bargain, IMO

    All the attention goes toward the 27" iMac, but for $1199, the 21.5" is a bargain. I was shocked to see such a difference in screen clarity and color depth between the new 21.5 and my one year old beloved 24" iMac. If I had the money on me at the time, I would be typing this on the new machine, and my 24" iMac would be on eBay. The display really is stunning. Enjoy.

    Whether you buy a new or a refurb machine, they both come with a one-year warranty. Take a look at the refurbs - they'll save you money AND they've been tested twice for issues :p.

    UK student deal usually kicks off the school year in the fall (where the US deal is all summer). A netbook is a drag for screen size - can you beg an external monitor off somebody to give you some more screen real estate when you're back in your room?
