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.

after having 2 pc's just die on me i switched to mac. it was the best decision i made.. first acer computer lasted a year and then totally died. then i got a dell it lasted about 2 years before it started randomly blue-screening.

i bought an imac, i used it for 2 years then sold it for 1000, when i wanted to get a new computer. Also sold a used macbook air for 800. Macs are better made, and hold their value better. even though they are more expensive.

i have had such a good experience with mac's that i doubt i will ever go back to windows. especially now that windows has become a tablet os..

iphone and itunes helped me make this decision too. i got an iphone. and started using itunes. now i own movies and stuff on iCloud, and it just made sense to get a mac, and i plan on getting an apple tv sooner or later.

I'm not bashing your decision but colour me confused that you went for two vendors with two of the worst reputations for quality and you're surprised at the results? If you get an computer from non-reputable vendors are you surprised at the result?
