so my old boss is low on cash and hes selling company assets, and asked me to buy the intel imac i worked on for 500... considering it retails for 1500, and sells on ebay for 1000, and my current pc getting to be 2-3 years old now. pc has 250 gb hdd, ati x300, 1 gig ram, pent 4 3.0 ghz processor. so im going to buy the imac. but i was wondering what are the downsides of macs? i programmed perl on it for like 2 months and i liked it.
