    hello all!
    i am thinking about getting the new intel based 24" imac's but i have read some issues with them.
    aparently ther have issues running windows vista. is that true? because if i get a mac i want windows and mac os x installed so i can use which one i need accordingly.
    also is it possibal to mod macs and by mod i mean upgrade the hardrives ect without voiding your warrentry?

    please reply to this thread i really need advice and latley no one is replying to my threads!!!
    thanks,
    glitchzoo.

    Vista right now is having issues with everything. I would actually recommend going with Windows XP on that machine for now. At least until most of the kinks are worked out.

    You can upgrade your hard drive, ram, etc but parts you upgrade with non apple parts wont be covered by the apple warranty. Also the 24in imac is a VERY sweet computer. One of my customers just bought one fully loaded. I would also recommend XP.

    I don't have the intel one. I do have the last IMAC G5 2.1ghz, 1.5gb in ram. 250gb HDD. Fantastic machine.
    May get a macbook pro further down the road.
