Apple "The 17" iMac has almost everything a silencer could want. It's quiet, efficient, good value, and can even run Windows. the iMac is a computer for the connoisseur, just as Apple intended. Power users, enthusiasts, anyone who wants to tweak the hell out of everything should probably stick to building their own systems - they'll be happier molding the computer to their own personal quirks. However, for someone who wants to use a computer, not take up computer building as a hobby, the iMac is among the best there is."

Of course some are so used to be told what to do and how to do it that you don't question it. It's easier that way, isn't it though? They give you a nice white box, tell you how and what to do, and that's that?

Some of us value choice, however. And your argument about feature-for-feature is weak considering you can barely even change the way your desktop looks in OS X, much less changing major functionality. Overall control of your system is the most important feature of all, not some cutesy eye candy.
