“iMac - Apple of my eye”

published 05/05/2010

ProUtterly beautiful, Aspirational value, Powerhouse ...

ConsExpensive, Most software written for Windows

PC or Mac? Difficult choice but my great preference has always been for PC. I love them. Started with a 120Mhz pentium on a 1.5Gb HDD running Windows 95. Since then have had every incarnation of Windows (some good and some bad) and find that the basic OS is easy to get into 'nuts and bolts' for...

“Apple Imac”

ProBloomin Brilliant!

ConsNone whatsoever...

Nice screen size... bigger than your average PC. Very user friendly, plug it in, and away you go. ‘Spaces’ is very useful, especially when you are working on multiple documents, and need to flick back and too quickly. Plenty of USB ports, which allow for multiple accessories - unless you use the...

Conspricy, windows users may have a hard time adapting

Apple really went all out on this one, with no cut corners that I have seen, inside or out. To start out, this is by far the best computer I have ever owned. I was previously a windows person, then decided to take the leap forward to mac, and am glad that I did. Every detail of the machine is...
