April 9, 2011I am thinking about getting a iMac. I have a few friends that have the iMac and they love it. Anyone here have an iMac? What has your experience been? Thanks.

Doubles, I`ve never had one, but if I were starting all over wit getting involved with a pc and how to run it and use it.........I would go for a Mac of some kind......cause they are much easier to use and more intuitive (user friendly) than a windows based system.
How do I know that.....since I`ve never had one or used one??? In a former life as an IBMer, I managed a Human Factors Dept. in our software lab in Raleigh. I had several college graduates working for me that majored in Human Factors (Usability studies) and some of them had PHds in the subject.
Many of them owned Macs cause they indeed were more user friendly they told me.
Downside of one is there are many applications that work on Windows based pcs that will NOT work on a Mac system
April 10, 2011I have a macbook and love it. I was always a PC guy and t was hard to switch but it has been awesome. I dont plan on ever switching back. I have had mine for 2 years and it is just as fast as when I first bought it. They are a little more expensive but worth the extra.
Ps I have not found anything that I wanted to use that would not work on my Mac
April 10, 2011Supposedly no viruses or almost none with Macs.
April 10, 2011Yea I havent had any virus problems, but I know they are not virus proof. But not nearly as many bugs out there for Macs
April 11, 2011Thanks guys. I had a computer tech out today and he put a new video card in and made some changes and that seems to have fixed it for now. We still need a new computer in the near future, but we may not have to get one immediately now. I have done a lot of research on the Macs and it seems that in the early years there were a lot of programs that did not run on Macs, but that is not the case now. I understand that the Macs almost never get viruses, etc that plague PCs; though I did not really understand the explaination why. I am not a very techy fellow. I have also heard that there may be a new version of the iMac coming out very soon and that I should wait if I can. I`ll either be one of the first to get the newest iMac, or I`ll save some money on the "old" model.
April 23, 2011I`ve been running an I Mac for about 4 years now. I have not had any problems with it. None, Zippo, Nada!! So much more user friendly!! "Once You Go Mac, You`ll Never Go Back"
April 23, 2011Cool. The more I read and hear about them, the more I want one.
May 3, 2011The new iMacs came out today and I have decided it`s time to upgrade.
May 31, 2011I picked up my new 27" iMac today. This thing is incredible!
