I am a real newbie when it come to owning an apple product. Is 1GB of ram good enough for now? is it like a window it needs more ram to run efficient, or is apple different? I know more ram the better. Can someone give me the heads up if I am buy the right Imac.

I agree with all of isteve's points.

It depends on what you like to do with your Mac, but, I would definitely get more RAM; I would at minimum double your RAM to 2 GB.

My daughter is very happy with her Macbook, it runs flawlessly:)

Mac OS X 10.6 the next version is also due maybe this spring. The word from apple is that it will run faster and be able to take full advantage of 64 bit processors and graphic processing.

Good Luck, if you need any help if you get a Mac stop by.
