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.

Atleast in my own case it's simply a matter of almost non-existent budget: the more I can save on the costs the more money I have left to actually buy components with. Sure enough, it costs around 50€ to pay someone to slap the thing together, but I could instead use that 50€ to buy an even better GPU so I can get by with it for a slightly longer time if I just go ahead and do the work myself.

Indeed, we are doing things differently there. Myself, I would tend to wait a bit for the extra money if I can in such a situation.

(Where "if I can" essentially means "if I have another usable machine in the house for the time being")
