    Hi guys!

    I was browsing my campus' computer store, and came across a sheet of "Apple Clearance" items.

    They have the last rev. 2.8Ghz aluminum iMac for only $1,199.

    24" 2.8 C2D
    2GB
    8X SD
    ATI Radeon 2600XT w/ 256MB

    Now, I really, REALLY wanted the new iMac with the 8800GS, cause I'd really enjoy playing games in Windows from time to time (since my roommate is quite the PC gamer). However, would I be stupid to buy that when this offer is staring me down? I think so... I can't justify an $850 difference for a video card upgrade.

    Yeah, that's a very good deal - and also keep in mind that while the Radeon won't have you playing Crysis on high, it's capable of most existing games and is miles ahead of your current MacBook.
