Apple MacSpeedZone has benchmarked the new Intel iMac, and they conclude something completely different than MacWorld did not too long ago. "We are pleased to report that our testing results show that the new Dual Core Intel iMac, which clocks in at 2X 2.0GHz is almost as fast as the current high-end Power Mac that has two Dual Core G5 processors running at 2.5GHz." And so it seems people can't seem to come to a consensus on anything related to the Intel iMac. Whether it be speed, or sales.

"It's. A. Computer. Not. A. Sofa."

I'll second that. Makes you wonder if these same people also look for elegant design in their toasters, blenders, vacuum cleaners and microwave ovens as well.

Um, yes? A toaster, blender, and a microwave sits in plain sight for everyone to see (much like a computer, hmm). Our toaster at home is a shiny chrome retro one, and our microwave has a nice stainless steel front that matches the refrigerator.

I wonder if people like you ignore elegant design in your shoes, shirts, trousers, suits, etc.

Everyone has a different idea of what 'elegant design' is. I don't personally care about clothing, and I simply dress to meet the expectations of others because it's financially beneficial. Quite similarly I have numerous pieces in my kitchen that aren't the same color as my refrigerator or my toaster. They are however spaced and stored in such a manner as to maximize my convenience when using them to prepare food. Preparing actual food is a task that I find far more interesting than how the instruments are colored. I consider their individual excellence in their respective tasks and the efficiency of their arrangement to be 'elegant.'

Dude, it's a computer. The vast majority of the world has computers which you Mac users claim to be "ugly". They don't care and many of them are richer and probably have more style than you. They know it's just a tool, and for the most part they don't care what it looks like.

And yeah, for the record, I'm not "elegant". I don't need to impress with my wardrobe. That's the yuppy way But I guess if someone either needs to make up for their personality or are not afraid to show how materialist they are, yeah...it's all about style.
