Help me pull the trigger!
Feb 18, 2009

Help me choose a new desktop computer and an LCD for photo editing please. Looking to spend up to $1500. I had been considering buying an iMac for the past 3 months but I don't see Apple announcing a new iMac yet and not sure if it's worth waiting since my 6 year old desktop died and I'm using my wife's laptop which is terrible for photo editing.

I have been contemplating on a new Dell XPS Studio with i720 CPU, 64 bit vista home premium, 6gb of DDR3 Ram, 500GB hard drive for about $900! Also thinking about getting the new Dell Ultrasharp 2209 AW LCD for $300!

What do you think about the above? Are there any better deals out there, or should I wait for the new iMacs?

I should mention that I used my friends iMac for a day and was very impressed with the intuitivness and the design of the Mac. I am tired of buying Windoze machines but realize that i may not be able to afford the new iMacs.

Thanks for all your input.
