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.

Thinkpad + Linux

I went for a Lenovo Thinkpad, running Linux. For the following reasons:

1. Hardware: the screen is matte, not glossy. The keyboard sports real keys, not those chicklets. I can take the thing apart and replace every parts (versus Apples "glued together non repairable" approach)

2. Software: I have Linux taylored to my needs. My choice of window manager, file systems (yes, multiple), and so on. It's rock stable and fast.

And of course I have an image on a seperate disk.
