Hi. I am buying a new computer this coming Dec.
With a budger of $3500
What would you prefer?

A: 24" iMac (Upgraded)
-2.33 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
-2 GB Ram
-750 GB Hard Disk
-NVIDIA GeForce 7600
-And "Apple Support Plan"
The upgrade version of the iMac would cost me close to $3400

B: 17" MacBook PRO (Few Upgrades)
-200 GB Hard Drive
-And "Apple Support Plan"
This will cost me $3400

(There is no specific on where it will be used)

i would say go for the macbook and then if you need more screen space the pro has a powerful graphics card with a port for an external display and remember you don't have to buy apples displays a sony or samsung i would recommend because there great quality and there cheaper plus they come in more screen sizes obusly any old monitor would work but some might need an adapter good luck with ether mac

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
