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 guess here in the US I'm pretty spoiled. I can order a part from Amazon in the AM, and with Prime next day shipping I can have a replacement component on my doorstep the next afternoon. Then I can deal with the warranty issues, and if I get a replacment, I can ebay the replacement. At most 2 business days of downtime, which even Apple can't beat with in-store service.
