I only have 8 days left on this Rock - then its off to the Big Island.<br>So I am thinking about leaving the Mini here for Jaz , which originally I bought it to take with me. So I am thinking about these 2 ? ? what yas think <br><br><br><br>
I would base my decision on affordibility of the following features:<br>- RAM (at least 1GB, if you can't afford more RAM on the 20" iMac, get the 17")<br>- screen size<br>- disk space<br><br>CPU speed isn't really a big factor unless you have an app that crunches away on something. I would decide based on the above features.<br><br>
For starters, what are you using it for (aside from keeping us company )? How critical is screen size? What apps will you be running? Mostly universal software, or stuff like MS Office, Quark, Pshop, etc, that aren't universal yet?<br><br>If you can't make a decision, send me the $1,500 and I'll decide for you. But I'll need a couple of years to carefully test what I buy for you so's not to send you something that's not right. <br><br>
i heard on NPR last week that there was a study that showed that after 1 GB of RAM the user sees diminishing returns and sometimes even slower speeds. it was probably a PC-based study, so take it for what it's worth.<br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
Like was said already. Don't touch the Core Duo if you plan on using Photoshop. Adobe hasn't come out with their upgrade as yet and when they do you can add that on top of the price of your computer.<br><br>
