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 used to build my own computers back in the day when jumpers were jumpers and plug and play was not invented. I used to spend plenty of time tinkering, building, and enhancing my rigs. But as time when on, the work I did with my computer took precedence and I had less time to be tinkering inside computer. I slowly, replaced the computers in my home with macs and generally find I get less runaround with warranty issues than I did with other vendors. When my computers were strictly built from parts there were plenty of times the various vendors would point fingers at each other instead of supporting their product.

I understand where Thom is coming from because I am in exactly the same place. I prefer to operate with a primary machine that is in warranty because it is part of my lively hood. I know how to tear them down and fix them, but that does not mean I have the time to do so when I have other deadlines to meet.
