Purchasing New iMac (appreciate advice!)
Dec 27, 2010, 5:19 AM
Hello, I'm trying to buy a computer for my graphic design business. I've been researching iMacs and realized I really need some help.
Here is what I would use it for.
I need a system that can easily run indesign, illustrator, and photoshop at the same time (preferably even more than that). The real issue is that I'm a student so money is tight.
What iMac model would be best for me? I'm open to refurbished models.
Side note, is a core i7 always better than a core i5 which is better than a core i3 when considering raw power?

The best Mac is a PC especially when on a tight budget.

Fill this in with as much detail as you can for us,
saying your budgets tight is fine, but we at least need a number to work to
