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.

"...the iMacs are great machines. Maybe not the latest or greatest HW, but put together in such a great way the negatives seem to vanish...

Can you use the display as a screen for another computer, like e.g. one day when the warranty's gone and the CPU/RAM/mobo/etc. goes bust does that also mean the display is useless also?

If you can't, well, then I have to disagree. With traditional computers you get to re-use lots of parts which contributes to less electronic waste, but with all-in-ones you actually contribute to the mountain of electronic junk occupying large areas in the developing countries.

On the newer ones you can.... At least if you are replacing it because it is old. I am sure some kinds of failures of the main board break that feature.
