Take a look at it. How can you not fall in love with the iMac? It’s a thing of beauty. It’s sleek. It’s sexy. I want to take it home, and… ok.. better stop there…
I was in Future Shop yesterday. I wanted to take a look at the Apple MacBook and MacBook Pro. As I wrote earlier, I’ve been thinking about making the switch to Apple with my next computer purchase. There’s no rush, but I wanted to take a closer look at Apple’s latest offerings.
I have to say that the MacBooks are nice machines, but I was bothered somewhat by the 13″ display. The MacBook Pro has a 15″ display, which was much more reasonable, but the price is a little hefty. I stood there and used the MacBook Pro for a little while, and it was nice… but I just didn’t have the “wow” factor that I was hoping to get.
And then I looked over at the desktops. The iMac comes in a 21″ and a 27″ model. A 21″ display is a very respectable… until you set it next to a 27″ beast. Then it looks like a runt.
The 27″ iMac is gorgeous. I can easily see myself sitting in front of it, happily writing to my heart’s content. It has everything that I want in a new desktop. It’s fast. It’s powerful. It’s amazingly compact. I want one. I want one now.
Ah… but I have to be smart about this. I have a budget now, and it might be a little too soon to run out and bring this baby home.
