This is my opinion, and let me repeat, this is my opinion, and not based on any fact or experience.

VStor from Apace Systems seems like a fantastic turnkey system. Apace is very aggresive with pre sales info, and seems like they will give great after sale support in helping you get it setup. They have a "starter system" for $8000. Although I have never tested it, I would bet you money, that you dont' take it out of the box, plug in your ethernet cables, turn it on, and "voila !", shared storage. But with that said, I am sure that Apace Systems will be there with you every step of the way. This is apparantly what happened with Chris Blair on the SANNetworks Cow forum, who had a great VStor experience. I can say nothing but positive things about Apace Systems from what I know so far.

As for an iMAC as a workstation, sure, it should work just fine if you dont' treat it like a MAC Pro tower, and dont' expect perforance from it. Same with a laptop like a MAC Book Pro. If it's got a dedicated ethernet port, and you have something else to capture with, it will probably work just fine. But don't take my word for it, as I never tried it.
