That machine will suit you admirably for the tasks you describe. Leopard will not be a problem for it and I'm sure it will not have any problems with future OS changes.
My old G4 will be running Leopard when it is available.
The Radeon card is suitable, besides which, you don't actually have a choice and you cannot change it.
If what you want to do is what you say, then go ahead and get it
If you can wait a month or two, OS X 10.5 (Leopard) will be released and installed on your new machine
Hi, I have always been a PC user and happy. Although, I am wondering if I should buy a Mac. If I was to, this would probably be my decision for hardware without knowing if this is to much or to little for my needs. I would use the iMac for general web surfing, instant messaging, email, and maybe a few games. Here is the system info that I see best for my needs but would like some feedback if this is about right or if I would be fine with other options for the hard drive size, etc. I want this iMac to hopefully have the hardware that will last for future OS upgrades such as Leopard. The iMac I am looking at is the 20" one.
Processor: 2.33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Hard Drive: 250GB
Graphics card: ATI Radeon X1600/256MB VRAM (I've always chose nVidia for my graphics card for my PC, never had experience with an ATI Radeon. Are they good for a Mac?)
That's really all, besides the AppleCare plan.
Thanks, any input would greatly be appreciated.
