G'day and welcome to the forums.

Do not overlook Apple Refurbished computers - just do a Google on iMac Refurbished. They come in a couple of hundred dollars cheaper than new, with the current operating system and a full twelve month warranty. One can then, if considered necessary, purchase the additional two year AppleCare warranty.

A current model iMac will give you a huge boost with improved graphics, memory and faster hard drives. Suggest switching to a Firewire 800 external case for your photos etc. When Thunderbolt becomes more common, that will be the go but the $200 is a bit steep at the moment for me.

If you can hold out it ns rumoured a new iMac will be released in the first half of 2013. Who knows ~~ USB3 etc?

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
