An Apple a day…

Last night at approximately 21:18 I finally gave in to temptation and clicked the little button that said purchase. Yes, continuing my love of Apple products I have fallen before the grace of the 24″ iMac and decided that my life would be meaningless without it. I really would have liked to max out all the upgrades but let’s face it, I’m not made of money. So, in the end I went for the base model with 2GB of RAM and a wireless keyboard and mouse option. Apparently this is one of Apple’s most popular configurations but do I care that I’m just another one of the mob? Absolutely not at all! I really wanted the 3GB of RAM but couldn’t justify paying Apple a further EUR 550 for a 2GB DIMM that would be swapped with one of my existing 1GB DIMMs. A 2GB DIMM on komplett only costs EUR 362 and the iMac is incredibly easy to upgrade the RAM should blog posts ever dictate a requirement for the extra memory :). I’ll post a little review of it when I’ve had time to play around with it a bit – there’s a possibility it may even arrive this week. Yippeeeeee! link: Apple – iMac

  1. Congratulations!

    I know there’s a certain nostalgia towoards PPC over Intel but the performance will win you over.. and Apple’s Universal Binaries make the change a complete non-issue.

    If you’re looking to spend even more money, I’d highly recommend a copy of Parllels. The ability to try every combination of Linux distro side-by-side is worth the $80.

  2. Thanks! The pain of parting with PPC is getting easier, just have to keep telling myself that there were no PPC chips, ever. That and the pant wetting euphoria of a 24″ screen with my name on it. Not literally of course. 🙂

    I think that I’ll give it a while before loading another OS onto it via parallels but yup a purchase will most likely be on the cards.
