"Top of the heap"5.0 starson by LMCWraith
Pros: Display quality, very powerful, no bloatware, trialware, state of the art IO.
Cons: No ten key on keyboard. Never have liked ANY Apple mouse! Just replace with a Logitech.
Summary: This is the desktop computer most people need. It's fast, secure, and the included software suite is very powerful and will do the things most people want to do right out of the box and SO much better than any PC counterpart. There's also TimeMachine that solves backups for most everyone. The list goes on. Most of all, it's not about the hardware so much anymore. This machine is state of the art and comes with a fantastic display but it's best selling point is MacOS X and the included software. Sure, you can find a cheaper Wintel machine with comparable hardware but there are so many hidden costs with a PC. Worst of all, those other choices run Windows, which is a deal killer for me.
