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.

These past few months I've come to realise that when your computer is that of a crucial aspect of your life, you simply can't rely on self-built computers anymore. I had three desktop computers - main, backup, and emergency - and within the timespan of a few weeks, they all died.

What a load of crap.

Apple are notorious for using cheap, nasty and unreliable components in their consumer PCs.

It is quite easy to build a very reliable whitebox PC.

Buy a high quality power supply and case. The cheap-arse models are unstable, noisy and overheat.
