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.

I also picked up the Magic Trackpad on a whim a while back and have enjoyed it, which surprised me. I even managed to link it up with my Nokia (where it appeared as a mouse sadly).

Your comments about Rev A hardware apply to Apple and virtually all hardware/software companies. I am regularly a Rev A buyer and know what I am getting myself into. It seems that I actually enjoy the experience, as I keep on doing it (insanity). But, I never use such hardware or software as my primary. I have a highest-spec MBP Retina that I ordered shortly after announced and still use my 2010 MBP as my main work machine. The Retina is my test machine for things working on Mountain Lion while my main machine is still on Lion.

The skeumorphicisms drive me crazy as well. Address Book is just awful to use; making a mail group in it for a friend was truly painful (back and forth repeatedly).

Lastly, don't forget the SuSE slogan: Have a lot of fun!
