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 think I just got bored with destroying towers to put better hardware and software into them every few months to keep them top notch


You just stated right there your own failure: you kept upgrading the thing every few months. Some people seem to have the mentality that if it is possible to keep upgrading the thing constantly then you're required to do so.

I built my PC something around 1.5 years ago and the only upgrades I've bought so far have been a new display, a USB 3.0 card and an SSD, and I haven't yet even placed that USB 3.0 card in there because I'm waiting for my SSD to ship. Haven't had any need to constantly open the thing up or fiddle with the hardware, the only thing I do is open it up about once a year to clean up all the dust inside -- something that wouldn't even be possible with iMacs.
