So many Canadians! Cool <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" /> ! Being yet another Canadian I can chime in with my gripes about the Canadian 'Peso' and how it makes being a Mac user so
farking expensive! I mean, $600 iPod BEFORE our lovely 14% tax! Egads! Oh well, that's the cost for free medicare...or something, I forget our excuse for taxes. Just be glad we don't live in Sweden where taxes are 25%
Anyway, I'd go for the iMac with the larger HD, even 60gb isn't that much anymore if you plan on having mp3s, movies, or any other collection of files.
Since I use my PowerBook as a portable library I copied the WorldBook Encyclopedia CDs onto my HD so I didn't have to carry them with me, it takes up 1.5 gigs or so but it's worth it. I also have a public domain eText library which is about 500mb on here, so you see, even the smallest files take up a lot of space when you get a lot of them.
But if HD space really doesn't matter, I doubt you'd see much of a difference between 100mhz. I got the 550mhz PowerBook instead of the 667mhz one because in what I'm doing (Email, web browsing, mp3s, reading text
files etc.) I don't really care about speed. Just as long as the OS runs fast enough (which it does). All I can suggest is, save the money from getting the cheaper iMac and buy ram, lots of it. Max out the ram if you're running OS X, ram makes all the difference!
Good luck with your decision, either way you'll be getting a great machine. BTW: What colours do they have?
