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.

at the moment I'm seeing a bit of a decline in apples push to new and daring technology and design, with the release of the iPhone 5, which is just a 4s with an extra row of icons

It was the same with all iPhone refreshes, even excluding (and reintroducing with great fanfare...) some tech that was taken for granted for quite a while in mobile phones in general...

they way the machines are really built to workstation class standards. Pc's are great but they are a lot more plasticy.

There's more to that than cases / overall build quality of most Apple machines is fairly in line to run-of-the-mill PC. And you know, if you want to pay for "non-plasticy", you do have that choice in the PC world ...thing is, most people can't pay for that, and it's good they have that choice (if it were for Apple, such "lesser" people would probably have no computers - after all, Apple openly a) aims to target only the few most profitable percentages of the population b) tries to block other companies from any supposed innovation brought to the table; if you bring those two to their logical synthesis...)
