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.

Not to mention the price they charge for that hardware, which honestly isn't great to start with (An HD6750? Really?) is just insane. And I agree with win 7 lasting until 2020 Ballmer can squirt out his metro all he wants, isn't gonna affect anybody.

Heck we are just now getting games that support DX10/11 so I doubt seriously there will be any software in 2019 you couldn't run on Win 7 just fine and hopefully Ballmer will "retire" (be run off by the board) long before then and Win 9 will be back to a traditional desktop with just new features to get you to buy.

So while I'm glad Thom is happy with his new iMac if you were gonna go for the hard to upgrade walled garden why not get a Macbook? at least they keep their resale value longer than the iMacs do.
