Pros After new Mac Pro, this is the strongest and fast pc. Screen quality is amazing, it's opening the apps with lightning speed. My internet as fast as never be before. FI think with this price, this the best. I am using 27 inch and i7 3.4 Ghz one.
Cons Do not have yet
Summary Price. For me price is not a problem for me so thats why i could buy but people hit this amazing piece of art from this way because of jealousy. So this is Apple but people wanna see this pc in a "chocolate price" and review it even if they don't have this pc. Some gives two star just for not have 3D display, some because of price and the funny thing is one person said that he couldn't open anything with this pc. I think being funny must be something like this. If you do not know what is Mac, do not come closer to this machine.
Pros Better than a PC, faster and amazing! Its not like any other computer!
Cons None..... It doesn't have any problems since I bought it, well maybe it won't for the next 100 years.
Summary Best computer out there! Works like Magic, I can't believe no other Pc companies can't beat the Mac, thats because its awesome and a magical device.
"Great Computer"on by mental1000
Pros Fast, reliable, workhorse
Cons Windows with Parallels really slows down the computer
Repairs- Repairs are a pain, Apple WILL NOT sell you parts. You HAVE to take the computer to apple even when its out of warranty. I don't live close to an apple store, going to the apple store means
Summary I LOVE mac computers with a passion, but I can't give them 5 stars when they are so horrible with accessibility for parts, but you don't need them very often.
I will still only own a mac but they really need to be more accommodating for customers who don't live near a apple store or only people who live near a store will buy them and that will hamper their growth.
Pros Wireless (but power cord) if you want it
Fantastic display - big, vibrant, and lots of pixels
Dual thunderbolt ports
Footprint hardly more than a 27" monitor alone
Good internal sound
Very advanced Lion OS
Cons Could use more ports (USB3, ESATA, HDMI?)
Expensive to buy and repair (outside of warranty)
Limited expandability inside
Lion OS new autosave and versions features require adapting ones workflow.
No iDVD or iWeb apps anymore. No restore DVD.
At this price
Summary We've had a number of iMacs since the "monitor on a foot" style originated 7 years ago. Each one has been better than the one before. It's become "computing nirvana" for me as I really despise my new HP Workstation (with dual monitors) at work compared to my iMac.
It's not a system for tinkerers, but I got over that tendency years ago. It is a system for getting work done. If you make money sitting in front of a computer, I can't think of a nicer one to have.
Warning -- OS X Lion will take some getting used to. Every edit is saved away by default which is both a blessing (no more accidentally lost work) and a curse (mistakes will be saved, too!). But an understanding of how to use Revert, Duplicate, and Versions (a TimeMachine for a document) is important.

Summary How do I back up my data?I have gone to time machine but telling me it is not set up?
