Hi, 2 weeks ago i purchased the base model 2011 iMac (2.5Ghz QC). I thought i'd write my opinion and personal experiences for those thinking and wanting to buy. I've been a Windows user all of my life (albeit 21 years), so for a good 12-15 years I've used a Windows machine. I'd been researching about Mac's for months, being very hesitant to buy as I personally thought £999 was a lot to pay for the basic iMac. But still, after all the research, I knew it would suit my requirements and also most owners posting on this and other forums seem very happy with their Macs and defend them to the hills... I am a convert. Don't get me wrong, there are a few niggles but on the whole, I think they are worth the money. About 24-48 hours into having and playing with my mac, I had buyers remorse. I recall saying to myself "******, what have I bought this for?" but spent a few more hours becoming familiar with the Mac way of doing things and am now very happy with it. I do however have a couple of quibbles that someone may be able to help me with: *Windows machines have a 'backspace' key to delete to the left of the cursor and a 'Del' key to delete to the right of the cursor. Macs just have a 'backspace' key which I find quite frustrating as to delete to the right of the cursor, you have to reposition the cursor using either the mouse of cursor keys. I know it only takes a couple of seconds extra, but why doesn't Mac have the 'Del' key? Its so simple! *I've found the 'Caps lock' button quite unresponsive. It works when I click it firmly, but if I'm speed typing (I don't use shift to go uppercase, i prefer caps on/off) when I click it on, 9/10 it comes on, but clicking it to turn off normally results in a 5/10 success rate. Which I find very odd! Is this just me, or is this quite common? *On maximum sensitivity I don't think the mouse is sensitive enough. In my opinion, you have to travel with the mouse much further than I was expecting. It's a good 20-30cm from far left of the screen to far right - wouldn't dare to think how much travel the mouse does when on minimum sensitivity! Thats about it! They are only very minor points and having know them prior to buying, it wouldn't have been enough to put me off. But perhaps to others, it may frustrate them. I love my mac, and I will be buying others in the future - Good Work Apple! You have another satisfied customer!
