    Purchasing the 24 inch Imac, I have few ?
    Hello,

    In the next 2 weeks I will be getting A 24 inch imac, with 2 gb ram, 250gb hd, upgraded video card. The computer will primarily be used for photoshop, quark etc. However, i was wondering whether I can it to play hd video games (XBOX 360) or whether I could use it to watch hdtv (i already have a hd cable box). Is this at all possible? Do I need to purchase anything else to make it possible? Any advice greatly appreciated...
    thank you and happy holidays

    There is no HD inputs in the iMac and there are currently no external tuners that accept HD inputs. You can get units that allow you receive over the air HD but since you already have HD through your cable provider it would do you no good
