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.

You will probably be hard pushed to use a system (or components) from a company that has not been involved in the patent lawsuit game.

If the Apple situation in particular grips you then so be it, but don't believe they are the lone bad guy here.

The only places I can't imagine have brought patent lawsuits are the linux distros but whatever hardware you run on, you'll fall into that.

Apple is one of the worst companies at least. I don't know many other technology companies that engage in such ridiculous patent litigations to hinder fair competition. Microsoft in second worst IMO which is why I don't want to use their products either.
