"Perfect, awesome, spectacular"5.0 starson by skillzmilloy
Pros: Beautiful screen, great with media, the remote and front row are really cool, the most simple machine with great design.
Cons: A bit expensive but you won't regret it as no one else does. If you are a gamer you could get a PC that would do better for much less.
Summary: First off I just wanted to say that the guy who rated this computer a 1 is wrong. He said that the camera isn't adjustible (its built in to the screen) and he also said that this isn't a gaming computer. Well, if you are a hard core gamer then you wouldn't buy an iMac. Those are both stupid cons and the fact that he gave it a 1 is completely wrong... with that said let me get to my review. I will admit that PC is much better than Mac dollar for dollar when it comes to doing the most sophisticated games. But if you aren't a gamer, then Mac owns everything else.
This computer has two phrases that describe it. Brilliant ease of use and great design.
Everything works great and apple seems to think of anything that you may want to do when you work on a pc. They have given an expose feature which helps you see all the windows open in a second and their operating system (tiger) must be the best OS ever. It is far superior to windows. The front row program looks spectacular. When I show people this computer the first thing I show them is front row media cause it looks so cool.
If you are a PC owner as I have been for the last 7 years it is hard to understand what I mean by "everything works better and simpler and just looks awesome." You might think, everything looks fine on my PC and everything works good. But once you have owned a mac for a week and you see that everything truly is better you will understand what I am saying.
The only true downfall to owning this machine is you may find program compatibility programs. This won't happen for college classes or anything, as it runs all microsoft office programs (including word, excel and powerpoint). You may run into trouble trying to run, for example, an online poker site's program. You can solve this problem by downloading virtual PC which will run anything a PC does but it is considerably slower.
On the bottom line, this computer runs brilliantly and simple. The design is beautiful, the screen is beautiful and when you are using it you just think, "this is great. So much better than my old pc". I can understand the doubters because I was a doubter for years, I just switched to mac a couple weeks ago. It is truly hard to explain but once you have owned one for a week you will know what I am saying. Once you do buy it, come online and write a review.
It never ceases to amaze me how good the ratings are for the macs. Despite the few who rate this computer a 1 or 2 (how could you possibly? The only true complaint may be that it is pretty expensive, but I am completely satisfied and would buy it again) this is the best computer that you can own. MOST EVERYONE RATES IT A 9 or a 10. Doesn't that make you curious? It did make me curious and now I know exactly why.
I'm mac for life.
YES I pay 500$ more for a similar powered computer that a PC is. But here is how I benefit...
1. beautiful design and workspace which you use everytime you turn on your computer
2. The ease of use of an iPod
3. EVERYTHING just makes sense, it is hard to describe.
4. no viruses or spyware junk that everyone gets on PC and is always worried about.
THIS THING OWNS! I WOULD GIVE IT AN 11. I'll never buy a PC again unless I become a gamer (truth is that PC is just a lot better when it comes to playing the most sophiticated games, could you get a mac that could do the same? yes. but it would probably cost you 2500 for a mac that would do the same as a 1100 PC). But for everything other than gaming, i.e. music, pictures, video, DVD, etc. Mac is just ten times better.
