Which Mac would you buy???
Aug 8, 2007

Greetings, I'm a graphic designer and part time photographer.

I've been waiting for this new iMac for a couple months now and now that it's out I'm left with a funny taste in my mouth. All glossy with no matte option??? Bogus! They are obviously trying to appeal to switchers with this thing. And what's up with that big fat black apple in the center of the screen, I find it distracting. Pretty pompous of Apple if you ask me.

Now that I'm done whining, here are the choices I'm pondering.

Option 1: Previous White iMac 24 inch.

Option 2: New Mac Mini with Core 2 Duo with 23 inch Cinema Display. I'm leaning towards this because I can upgrade the computer down the road and still use the same great display. Just wish it had Firewire 800.

I'm assuming the 23 inch display will be usefull and not obsolete for atleast 5 years.

I'm tired of drudging along with my 667 G4 Powerbook and CS1 and I've already purchased CS3 waiting to take advantage of the Intel chip, so please help me make up my mind with the hardware.

Thanks a bunch!
