Hey folks, just curious on your take on this perplexing issue I am having!
I have the money to buy a new system. PC or iMac. Now I have never given Apple computers much credit, as I have always been a dabbler in pc programming, and more so a gamer. But in the last few years (4+) I have been playing less and less new games and staying with strategy (lower graphic hogging) games. And it occured to me while planning to build a new PC system (specs below) that I am getting older now (we will say early 30's) and I play games less, and do more programming (Web Based, VB.NET, ASP.NET), Photoediting, and playing music than anything else. Well okay, I surf the Net more often than I game these days.
So I got to thinking would the new iMac G5 be a better choice?
I mean I can still use the my documents, pdf's, gifs' etc with the iMac, and it will talk to my current P3 1Ghz PC no problem. And the printer I have will work just fine as well. Dollars to build/purchase is the same!
What are your opinions? Don't make the decision for me, but rather voice you opinions either way. Good or bad.
