Sooooo I'm moving in June. No surprise there as I've already mentioned it to you guys. But! This means some changes for me, like not having a desktop computer anymore. All I'll be left with is my netbook, which is severely under powered to do much of anything outside web browsing, the occasional Skype call and document editing. This means it's time to get another computer, this time more powerful. Now, right now there is this amazing deal from Microsoft that if you buy a windows computer that is $699.99 or more you get a free Xbox 360 with it. Great! That's like a $400 computer and an Xbox! But! My brother just bought himself a new Macbook Pro and needs to sell his old 2007 iMac 24" which he is asking about $850 for.
I can easily find a more powerful computer than the iMac for the $700 for the deal, but I really don't have that large a need for an Xbox and I would like to help my brother. I know where this iMac is coming from and that it was treated well and everything. But! I could theoretically try selling the Xbox and recovering some money, or even give it to my girlfriend. So I would like the opinions of you guys. What should I do? Buy from my brother and help him out, or buy from a retailer and get a free Xbox?
PS: I would bootcamp Windows on the iMac because I really only like it for the form factor, not the OS.
I for one welcome our new computer overlords
