I have 200GB storage now, but on two drives. I hate putting all my eggs in one basket, but I see that one use for that FW800 is for an external drive, so that is probably what I would do. (Yes, we do use a lot of Firewire, but I had never run into FW800 before.)

The Pro would cost a lot more. Among other things, it is based on a fancier chip, but I would also have to buy a separate monitor. My sense is that the iMac is 90% of the function at probably only 60% of the cost (since the model I am considering includes a 24-inch LCD). (But even the 20-inch looks pretty good, and that would be even cheaper.)

Of course, the Pro, with its tower construction, is inherently more flexible, and upgradeable. The Mac 2, the 7500, and the G4s are all of that sort of design, and I regretted them much less than the all-in-one SE and Quadra 700.

Intel Core 2 Duo processors (2.16, or as much as 2.33 GHz)
1GB (up to 3GB) RAM (2 slots)
