"Perfect home computer"5.0 starson by alastairclarke
Pros: - Mac OS is lightyears ahead of Windows; the user experience is intuitive
- a 20" screen is large enough for us
- my 9 month old son has thrown around the (wireless) keyboard and mouse; so far, they seem very durable
- AppleCare is wonderful!!!
Cons: - It doesn't come preinstalled with MS Office (I know, it's not a great "con" but it's all I can come up with!)
Summary: I have to admit, I spent about a year researching desktops and I waited until the recent update. Our last 5 computers have been laptops (Macs & Thinkpads). I use a generic Dell at work and coming home to the iMac is a breath of fresh air.
Honestly, the main reason why we didn't go with an HP or Sony is because of Windows. The OS is the interface. On a PC, Windows is my main source of stress and frustration. Why would I buy into that?
