    Talking I did it
    Well about a week back i asked a question about purchasign a mini, and many of you told me to get an imac. I went to the local apple store on tuesday after work, and the whole way there i was convincing myself that the mini was the way to go for me since it is cheaper and this computer is more of a filler until i upgrade to the mac pro.

    I got there and began takling to a sales person and they tried to sell me on the 17 inch imac and i said no. As i was waiting for my mini to be brought out i got to playing with one and then i played with a 20 inch imac. I fell in love.

    Needless to say i went home with a 20 imac 2.16 ggz core 2 duo. BEst choice u ever made. After using it for a couple of days, i may not need to upgrade to the mac pro jk. Only downside is that it only came with 1 gig of ram and crucial is out og 2 gigs. O well its minor.

    Just want to thank everyone for you input and help.

    you wont be sorry with your choice! keep in mind if they guy was trying to sell you an imac there is a good chance he really did feel it was better for your needs.. Apple employees dont make commission.

    I should hopefully recieve my 24" imac this week, with 2.33 Ghz dual core, 3gb ram ,Nvidia GeForce 7600 GT 256mb video card, 500gb hard drive, wireless keyboard & mouse, and Final Cut Studio 2.

    Oooohh, I can't wait.

    Even iMovie does more than my current PC editing software.

    I was going to get a 20" iMac when I was trying to decide on what to get, but I really wanted something portable so I went with my MBP.

    When using the iMacs at school, it still makes me want a nice pretty iMac sitting on my desk, but oh well.

    Hey gomez1018.
    Snap! I have done exactly the same thing! (Are you my long lost twin, by any chance?)
    I even ended up with the same model as you.
    Cost 1000 here in the UK, I wonder what they cost in the USA?

    imac 20" 216 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 1GBSDRAM, 250 GB hd, Airport Extreme, Bluetooth 2.0
    I did it about 7 months ago and I've loved it ever since. Never been sorry one day!

    The 20" iMac's cost about $1500.00 in the U.S.A.

    Enjoy, and come back to the forums often. It's a great place to hang out and learn more about your awesome purchase.

    LOL......Ya it cost about $1500 but i also bought an ipod mini for my fiance (rebate so its free), dvi to mini dvi, apple care.

    Also in regards to the ram from crucial. After I called them i got an email saying that my order had shipped and is due in today. I think they may just be back stocked and having trouble filling we border from thier website. SO call them if you cannot buy it online.

    Again thanks for everyones help.

    *Ahem* iPod nano. Sorry to be pedantic, but they are completely different things

    Anyway, congrats on the purchase. I'm sure you'll love it.
