We're looking at iMacs for my girlfriend, and I was wondering: would the entry-level model be sufficient?
When looking at Windows desktops, I tend to suggest a model a few levels above an entry-level desktop. This usually means the PC can be used longer and it will feel like a fast desktop for a while longer.
Is the same true for an iMac? When is the basic model insufficient? Naturally, this is not a $300 PC, so I would think that even the basic model is a very capable machine. However, for only a few hundred dollars above the entry-level model, CPU speeds are doubled, among other improvements.
Again, this is for my girlfriend, and she really only uses it for internet, the occasional movie and listening to music.
