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.

Agreed with the electric problems. I live in a state with many thunderstorms and other electrical fun. A power filter, not just a surge protector, is a very good investment. Beware of just putting things on a UPS. A line-interactive UPS will not filter the line. A double-conversion UPS will filter the line. Similar comments apply to many surge protectors--they don't do any line filtering.

If you regularly have under voltage conditions on your lines, components could be overheating causing premature failure.
