Apple I bought a brand new iMac on Tuesday. I'm pretty sure this will come as a surprise to some, so I figured I might as well offer some background information about this choice - maybe it'll help other people who are also pondering what to buy as their next computer.

Umm...Build your own?

Your main argument seems to come down to - you want to be able to have someone else take care of the hardware when it breaks and you want that someone else to just around the corner.

It seems to me you could do a lot better for yourself (in terms of money and hardware quality) if you took over that role yourself and build and maintain your own hardware. Are there no PC component shops in the Netherlands anymore? Or are you just wanting to be a consumer who when it comes to the insides of the magic box, "doesn't deal with that stuff"?

As for your recent motherboard failures, you might want to get your electrical setup checked out. I'd be really sad if your brand new expensive iMac suffered harm as a result of electrical problems on your end...
