yaeh there is archi cad... ArchiCAD 10 on the Intel Core Duo based Macs is very fast  compared to previous PowerPC based installations of ArchiCAD.The section/elevation window updates very quickly and the 3D window refresh is almost instantaneous. LightWorks rendering is also much much faster.

go in for a an apply any day...  they come with dual boot options...  so in any case... noting to worry bout software compatibility as such...  i am guessing the student offer is still valid on the imac too...  check www.apple.com/in/students
