I'm thinking of going Mac with my next purchase. I've been a windows user for 15 years now and feel like testing an iOS based product. Mind my asking how much you picked up your system for?
Sorry, I know the cables look like a mess underneath. I've been debating about moving my office into a larger room, but the spirit hasn't moved yet and I don't feel like wire-tying everything down. Anytime I get any free time I just get lazy anymore
This setup after my student discount (a whopping $50 bucks) worked out to about $2,300 after the i7 and 2GB video card upgrades. I then have another hundred in the 16GB memory I picked up from Crucial, don't get your memory from Apple! If I bought that from them it would have been like an extra $600.
My tip - Watch the refurbished section as the deals are better and they come with the same warranty. They had the 3.4Ghz i7's on Apple's refurbed section for $1899 with the standard 1GB video card. That's what I planned on buying, but waited until the new year so I could get a tax right off this year and they were gone.
I wanted to hold off for the new iMac's coming out, but really needed to get something faster. I don't see the next revision being that impressive so I pulled the trigger
I did get things moved around, but the cables are still a mess lol. Don't look down!
