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 already said I agree with this.


You did? Where? This is the entirety of the post I replied to:

Classic ain't going anyway, it might transform, but it still going to be there for years to come.

Have fun with the Mac upgrade cycle.

EDIT: What happened to your Windows 7 license? ... 2020 is EOL. There will be probably Quantum Computers by then.


There isn't a single mention of his hardware purchase by you, apart from a sarcastic remark about the Mac upgrade cycle. So tell me again where you agreed with anything he said?

Good for you, I dunno what the point is.


Just an example of my own similar approach to buying hardware based on needs rather than bias. For what it's worth, I'll be upgrading at least one machine to Windows 8 some time soon; I don't have as much of a problem with it as some people. I think Metro on the desktop could stand to be tweaked, but I agree with you: Classic is still there and will see a lot of use by me and many others I'm sure.

Again what has this got to do with anything?


Yeah I was probably a bit long-winded on that, just wanted to give a good example of how you can save money and get a reliable machine without necessarily switching OSes. In fact, it was actually more in line with your opinion so I'm not sure why you had a problem with it.
