    Bargain???

    The day I spend over £250 for a computer will be the day is how my rear in woolworths windows.

    How do you justify that sort of money? If it still worked I'd still be using my Packard Bell Pentium 133.

    Each to his own taste Frankie. Some people like to have the latest and greatest (no matter what the cost) whilst for others its a necessity for their work.

    You have a i-phone you know the capabilities and limitation of it so you are aware of apple and its brilliance, just imagine a machine which just work everytime anytime like a Honda.

    no more spyware, no more malware, no more patch Tuesday, no needless tweaks to get decent performance , endless bolt on products to save it getting hacked. You put a windows machine on the internet with no protection I can guarantee in 30 minutes it will be compromised.

    Internet is so dirty now you have to be a geek to save yourself.

    for 250 quid I bet you moan to kingdom come or just put up with below par performance.

    When Apple make a new operating system the upgrade is a tiny 25 quid how much to you have to pay to get a new Microsoft operating system ?

    I am about to kick my pc, let me down again and fed up now with fixing it. Am on the hunt for an imac, going to take the plunge and try Apple out. Never enjoyed the iphone so that went but I hear great things about the imac and never liked laptops so fingers crossed this will do. Just need to find one and sort some software for the camera.. Brother has macbook?? think thats what it is and he has never looked back.

    The iMac is great Keith, Amazon quite often is the cheapest place to buy one. They are nearly always cheaper than going to Apple direct. What software do you need for the camera?

    When I first got my MacBook Pro i hated it. I didn't know how anything worked and doing basic things seemed to take ages. I ordered mine direct from Apple and phoned them up asking to collect it. I then thought i'd give it another few days and in the end cancelled the collection. I woudn't be without it and as already said "It just works"

    Spot on if people have used Windows all their lives and go to mac it massive shock to see there is very few similarities. It breaking that initial learning curve, and once you mastered it you are flying on the Mac and will not look back.

    I would recommended the apple one to one coaching for newbies it worth in gold.:Thumbup:

    My favourite thing about my MacBook pro is the fact I can turn it on and it's ready in about ten seconds and turn it off and it shuts down in under five. I've never had any Pc that can do that.
