I have been thinking about jumping PC ship that I had been on for ~20 years. I put together multiple PCs with top of the line ingredients but I'm getting tired of doing that, tweaking, fixing, patching etc. I have been reading about Apple and either people are saying good things just b/c they have spent $$$$$$ or b/c they are that good. I hope its the latter. Here are some random questions: Is eSATA available for iMac or other Macs ? or is FireWire the quickest data transfer ? I'm assuming personal modifications such as RAM upgrade are fairly user-friendly, correct ? I'm leaning toward 24" / 2.8 Ghz iMac model. I will be using it mostly for PS/CS3; Dreamweaver; Lightroom and other small applications. Should I look into other models ? Should I wait for newer models ? This is all I can think for now. I will write more based on your feedback. Thanks in advance !
