Advice re. New iMac...
I've finally convinced my dad to get himself a new iMac. His first Mac was and still is an iMac G3/500MHz. He bought it when they were on the way out, it was the cheapest lowest-end Mac at the time. He's running Panther 10.3.9 on it and it's only got 256MB. I find it mind-boggingly slow, but he's used to it, so I'm looking forward to his reaction to the G5 & Tiger.
We're probably going to get him the low-end one again because he doesn't need the top-of-the-line, although I will suggest he bump the memory up if it's not too expensive.
So I have two questions, before we dive in and make the purchase:
Should we wait till after the 12th 'just in case' there's some new and exciting announcement that might affect him?
Should we order from the Apple.ca site, go to the store at Yorkdale, or try from one of the local (Brampton / Mississauga) retailers? Basically I'm wondering where we might get the best deal -- or are the prices going to be identical everywhere?
She who laughs last -- probably made a back-up.
