I am a current MS-PC user and am quite fed up. My last computer, a Gateway notebook, crashed on me an upwards of 8-9 times throughout the three-year warranty (thank God I had the warranty). I have been reading this site for months now, (as well as appleinsider, thinksecret, macobserver, and macworld.co.uk) anticipating my purchase of a mac. I have decided that I will opt NOT to get a notebook computer this time around because I never really carried my old on around like I thought I should have. I also want the added HDD space and a larger screen. I have thus narrowed it down to getting a 20" iMac. It seems through reading the forums here that most people on the site either have a MacBook or MacBook Pro, without nary a mention as to people who have an iMac. Why is this so? I thought this was supposed to be thier flagship model? Where are all the people that own iMacs? I notice a lot of people saying how it is a "consumer-end desktop" and I realize it is, but people say it with such a negative connotation that it is implied to be incapable or something. The rumor of the new mac mini is even drawing more attention than the iMac should. I don't need a mac pro by any measure or scale, it's too expensive and does not have a screen. The Mac Mini, isn't expandable enough, and then again I am left with the question of a monitor. It seems to me that the iMac is just right for me. Why does no one seem to love or prefer the iMac?
