Ok - maybe its time for a change For 15 years or so (since the 486) I have been a PC user, but over last few months and years my uses have changed to where I am thinking I PC is perhaps not the best option. I no longer game on a PC (have consoles for that) and am fed up with slow boot times and clunkyness of my existing PC I use my PC for (pretty much in order of pref) Internet Email Digital Camera Music (listening not creating) Video (watching not editing) Downloading things off the net UTorrent use (on occasion) Would I be able to do all this on a mac ? If I downloaded an avi file off the net either via torrent or other means would I still be able to copy them to my NAS drive and watch them on my XBMC ? I know NOTHING about Macs at all but more and more people seem to be suggesting them Have a budget of £500 or so (maybe little more) also have a Dell 24" WS Monitor for my PC - could I still use this ? What should I get for my money ? Seems 799 is basic for an Imac - would this be my best choice Could a Mac be used as a HCPC and connected to my 50" DLP ? Have seen at PC World (could just call in and collect so a bonus) 20" 2.16GHz for 779.97 or Apple Mac Mini for 299.97 although this has no monitor Whats the difference between the two ? Am I just paying £500 just for a monitor ? Would either of them allow me to do what I want ? Also noticed APPLE MAC COMPUTERS - APPLE APPLE iMAC 17" 2.00GHz which seems within my budget Also can I retain my ISP and email accounts (POP based)?
