Think im buying an Imac...suggestions?

Ok i want to get the new imac. 2 ghz, with intel chip, 2 gigs ram, 256 card, 20 inch monitor, superdrive..etc.
comes out to about $2000.

So has anyone tried the windows and mac os thing on the new intel chipsets?
My friend said it was awesome but i want another opinion.

so what u guys think?
btw im getting rid of the pc cause its slow and honestly i just need to reward myself with something...so this might be it. Dont tell me to buy shit for my car either...not worth it.

anyway. whats ur opinion on the computer? Anyone have one?

A great puter. IMO you are likely to use the OS X partition more and more

there is no compelling reason to use windows anymore. except for gaming. and thats becoming a null factor. . .

So i got the Imac.

Also got a 60 gig ipod, cause my 20 gig didnt support my crazy music habbit, and i got sick of having to flter through my music to fit only 20 gigs of my 50 gigs to fit on the smaller ipod.



This imac is amazing. No lag..at all. Things just load.



well..i cant upload pictures for some reason. Blinkfile is going way to slow and image shack also. ?!
