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 am running a desktop (mobo from 2005 or 2006, first lot of mobos to support Core 2 duo) with RAID 1 SSDs for the OS (60GBs), and it just another world running SSDs.

Yup. I just build my own i7 desktop PC with a 128GB SSD. From GRUB boot menu to fully loaded and functional desktop.... 3.5 seconds. Who needs hibernate! You gotta love Linux+JWM.

I have 4 seconds in Win7.

You lightweight Window Manager doesn't seem to have any benefit over my "bloated" Windows Install.

INTERESTING.
