I want a Mac, not a iMac or a Mac Pro, i want a plain $1200 Mac, with 4x HDD, 1-2 core2duo's, SLI pci-e video.

i think two disks would be enough for a mac notpro. to have one empty easy to access slot to add a disk for large media and/or time machine. imacs are beautiful but upgrading a hd is insane operation.

I agree with scotepi in his desire to see a mid-range Mac where the parts are user replaceable. However, the specs can be less and satisfy me. At least two hard drives, a standard size optical drive and a single graphics card would be enough for my needs. However, up to 8GB of RAM, and quad-core capable is a must.

In addition, having these user replaceable components would allow for some other functionality that I'd like to see, and that is BluRay drives and the ability to play protected content. Of course, an updated iMovie that is HDCP capable would be a huge bonus.

you can't get a Mac Pro cheap either.. cheapest config is $2300 (single CPU). I remember when you can buy a power mac for $1600 or so.. not anymore. Mac Pro is out of reach of everyone and iMac is the new Mac. Apple should go back to the quadra and performa days :) hmm... no!
