Aloha Friends, I am purchasing a new computer to help further my career in photography. My current computer is a Dell laptop that I used in college for papers/internet and it's way too slow now...plus I am unable to use callibration software on it. I have worked with Macs for imaging purposes in college, but that is about the extent of my Mac knowledge. I didn't find anything majorly groundbreaking with Macs that makes me think they are truly superior, but I keep hearing that they are for imaging. I am planning on getting an iMac...24inch / 3.66ghz / 500gb hdd / 512mb RAM etc etc...basically the best iMac that exists...including everything I want, the price tag is about $3200. Problem: I can get the the same thing in PC except a 750gb hdd for only $2100. I am divided. I have always wanted a Mac, but is it REALLY worth it?? Really people, I need a good educated answer. Also, I have heard that there is a reocurring problem with iMacs...after 2 years they just quit on you and lose all your information; of course I back everything up, but I want a computer that will last and be worth the $3200! Thank you for any input!
