questions regarding iMacs...
May 2, 2010

I am contemplating replacing my old Dell desktop with an iMac. My choices are the 27" duo core for $1699, or the i5 "quad core" processor version for $1999. I process using ViewNX, Capture NX2 and CSPS. I really dont work much in layers though maybe one day I would like to learn more on that.

Will I need the i5 processor? I know there is also more video memory on that machine, but will I really see a significant difference in speed for the money? I dont really do any video or big graphics stuff.

I am also being told that if I put on Windows 7 that I should boot it up separately when I need to use a windows based program vs using parallels to boot it up simulatneously. What are your thoughts here.

Can the imac display be calibrated with a gretag macbeth device?

How hard is it to add memory to an iMac?

Thanks for your help.
