I have returned back to using a Mac as my primary computer after a very long time. I am very happy to get this elegant look back on my desktop. Being a systems and network administrator, I cannot get rid of Windows completely, but I will not see its ugly face a lot, from now on.
I was using a 1.33 GHz 17″ PowerBook as my personal computer at home and being nearly 3 years old, it was getting slower and slower.
This is a 2.16 GHz 20″ iMac C2D. My old work computer was a 4 or 5 years old HP Desktop with 1.8 GHz. What a performance boost! This thing is very fast. iTunes playing and fetching artwork on the background, test broadcasting a 320×240 H.264 live TV broadcast to a QuickTime Streaming Server, trial version of Parallels (build 3170) running Outlook in coherence mode for corporate email, and there is barely a slowdown on the computer.
I have always been an Apple fan. Starting with a Macintosh Plus, I loved using Macs. Now this iMac has changed my vision entirely. I will probably never buy a computer from another vendor from now on.
Call me an Apple geek, that’s OK. 🙂
