What is the first thing you will do after your iMac arrives? (Besides plugging it in).
I got it completely maxed out, so I am going to run fcp x and motion 5 doing as much as I can (my current computer is a base model early 2009 iMac. It's practically useless). I'm also going to run The Sims 3 at full graphics, something which I've never been close to being able to do without serious lag.
see how well it can cut a tomato!!!!!!!
I'm getting a 21.5", but I'll probably be doing this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLnWf1sQkjY
Put it under the christmas tree and wait until xmas or xmas eve to open it. it's my gift to myself, and having it on christmas just feels like it will be fun!
Jiggle the Jewelry
Shake the Snake
Slam the Hammer
Snap the Monkey
Spunk the Monk
Tickle the Elmo
Waxing the Dolphin
...shall I go on ?
snapping the monkey sounds kind of painful... I thought it was spanking the monkey?
Meet the family
It will be introduced to the family, of course! I'll set it on Great Grandpa 7500/100 's lap, then do a meet and greet with Grandpa 8600/200, then off to see it's siblings, the 2007 White MB, then it's sister 2010 MB Air.
The proud mommy is a 2004 17" iMac G4 (Pod), and daddy is a Gen1 iPad. It seems a fitting child of the two of them...always wondered what she was carrying in that pod
Installing my new 16GB of memory to make 24 gigs- purchased from Crucial for 60 quid instead of the hundreds it would have cost with Apple
Plug it in, boot and verify the quality of the screen (distortion, dead pixels, backlight, etc.).
I'm going to leave in the box until finals are over this week...Seriously, though. It's supposed to get here Thursday, but I can't have the distraction...wish I could trade shipping dates with someone who could open it upon arrival.
so are you saying you will (Never Mind)
but WILL IT BLEND?!?
for the record, I think those are extremely stupid and sinfully wasteful videos, but the question was going to be asked eventually
1) Take Pictures
2) Post on Social Networks
4) Take more Pictures
5) Install 32GB of RAM
6) Plug in
7) Boot up
8) Time Machine everything over to the iMac. I would love to connect it via FW800 but Apple removed it from the iMac.
Perhaps Gigabit Ethernet would be faster than USB 3?
I will boot it up then do my pixel/screen analysis. I also decided to reinstall all my programs fresh instead of time machine from my old old Mac. This should be challenging since I didn't get a SuperDrive. I will install from the network and Internet. Fun times
Look at it for a few hours, and then gently caress its curves until it accepts me as its mate
So you'll be molesting it's backside?
Turn it on.
Gigabit maxes out right at 120MB/s, USB3 is supposed to be 5X as fast but you would need an external SSD to read/write faster than Gigabit.
You all are very creepy.
I actually just threw up a little.
True #nerdlove in its natural habitat...
I came into this thread hoping for someone to say "Install Windows 7 and benchmark high end games"...
Not what I found...
