A while back I purchased an iMac 21.5 inch from our local Apple store. I was excited when I got back home to open the rather heavy box. The one thing I can say is that the iMac was extremly well packaged in it's foam. The screen had a large foam/cloth like cover protecting it and the mouse was in it's own little pouch. I was very happy to see Apple had put a lot of effort into just designing the packaging.

Upon starting up the iMac I was greeted with an extremely helpful setup wizard, taking me through all the steps, even setting up the keyboard etc. In my opinion it was a much better and faster setup experience than Windows XP, Vista or 7.

After less than 15 minutes I was doing my usual computer tasks (well, at a more satisfying speed than before), exploring the extremely easy interface and taking funny photos on 'Photo Booth'.

`The interface is sleek, modern and quirky, it's extremely easy to navigate and I found that iTunes works like a dream on here compared to on Vista, although that is to be expected from Apple!

After nine months of using it I can truly say it was the best purchase I have ever made.. but, before I go I just need to give you a tip, LOOK CAREFULLY when inserting a SD card, 2 times I have put an SD card into the CD/DVD slot as they are so close together, luckily I got it out both times but some of you might not be so lucky... AND THERE IS NO WARRENTY COVERING THIS!

Thanks for taking the time to read my review.
