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.

"Most of the hardware I buy is secondhand anyway, so even if I do own a Sony or Apple or Samsung or whatever device, they never saw my money.

Hmm... I'm not sure that I would fully agree with that.
Perhaps the owner of the device you're planning to buy is just waiting to sell her stuff, in order to buy (using the money you'll give) the brand new iteration of that same device.

If you start thinking about it that way then you can't EVER use money at all. I mean, at one point or another one of the hands you've given money to will give some of that money to some other entity and sooner or later it'll still end up in the pockets you don't want to support.
