I know, my life is SO HARD but I'm trying to decide between buying a few different computers. I want a desktop computer (and I need a new desk as well, haha) to play games on, and possibly do work. I'm going to get a Mac because I have a few different Mac games (Sims 2, Civ 3 and World of Goo at the moment, plus Second Life) and I'd rather stick with Macs in general. :)

My options are:

-Buy Jon's dad's Mac mini. It is 1.5 years old, has a 2.0Ghz dual core processor and 2GB RAM. His RAM is probably NOT upgradeable, his model doesn't support 4GB. I have a nice monitor, Apple mouse and keyboard so I really just need the computer. He wants $500 for it. Maybe if I could talk him down to say, $400.

-Buy a new Mac mini with 2.0Ghz, 4GB RAM, with a few other improvements including graphics performance for $900 (including Apple Care). 2.26GHz processor would be $1050.

-Buy a new iMac. If I'm going to buy something new I might as well go all out right? And this way I could do WORK on this computer and give my laptop a break. 24in monitor, 2.66GHz (or 2.93) and 4GB RAM. Refurbished I could get the slower one for $1300, or the faster for $1550 (plus $170 for Apple Care).

Help me decide, internets. :D

(I'll write about what's going on in my life soon!)

That's three votes for that option! (My dad and I also think that's the best choice) :D

Now I just have to wait through WWDC to see if they make any improvements to the iMac. It could happen.

Thanks hun!

Get a Mac Pro with dual Quad Xeon 3ghz, 16GB of rammoriez, and 3 TB of storage.

Then you can cuddle with it!
