    Default Need advice

    Okay, I have recently purchased a HP Pavilion desktop with Intel i7, 12 GB RAM, 1 TB hard drive, etc. I have about $1200 invested. I have an opportunity to return the HP and get a 2-month old 21.5" iMac 2011 model with Intel i5, 8GB Ram, 500GB hard drive, Office 2011, Illustrator, Indesign, and Final Cut Pro Adobe CS5.5 Master Collection. I have never owned a Mac, but I think that I would like to try one. I have recently gotten a 4S and an iPad2, and so far I like the Apple products. Any thoughts on which is a better deal, and thoughts on Mac vs PC?

    Just simple spec wise I say stay with the pc. Just my opinion the "Apple tax" is not worth the price of admission. Factor that in with the relatively short "EOL" and it seems like a no brainer to me. Again take it with a grain of salt it's just my personal opinion.
