Apple I bought a brand new iMac on Tuesday. I'm pretty sure this will come as a surprise to some, so I figured I might as well offer some background information about this choice - maybe it'll help other people who are also pondering what to buy as their next computer.

Heck my PC is running a 2 year old AMD Hexacore I paid a whole $110 for and an HD4850 which I got for less than $50 off of Geeks and I can do full 1080P WHILE doing a video transcode and having a chat window open and not skip a beat, there has been many a time I've been transcoding a video to DVD in the background while playing a game, nary a hiccup.

So yeah...1080P...My GF's $300 AMD triple core with HD5450 does that just fine while she checks her FB, so not really a big whoop anymore. Heck even my $350 EEE E350 netbook will do 1080P over HDMI without skipping so I'd say that should pretty much be the LEAST you should look for in a system.
