I am becoming a Web Designer, and am interested in buying a Mac for my work.

I currently have a C2D Macbook, but I would like a Desktop.

What are some key features I should look into?

I'd be purchasing in a few months, so.

Would Dreamweaver be the best option program wise as well?


I am on an open budget, not that my budget is unlimited, I just dont know where it should be at the moment.

Thanks.

Mine handles the CS3 Master Collection like a champ. I've got the 24" with a 2.4GHz, 2gigs of ram, and a 500GB HD with the nicest video card (don't remember what it was). Photoshop CS3 opens in just a few seconds, and all CS3 programs run pleasantly quick.

Budget? Oh...well, mine was about $2200.

I would recommend that you go for the 24" imac. the 2.4 ghz one should be able to handle dreamweaver easily. The extra screen space is useful for having multiple windows open and visible at the same time

Definitely. I couldn't deal with a 20. As it is, I wish I had 30".
