    Just thought i'd share. My dad is moving out soon and just got an iMac for his apartment, my parents were "fine" with their dell with windows 7. when i brought the imac home from the apple store my mom took one look at it and got annoyed that he gets a cool new computer and she's stuck with the dell. So now i have to make another run to the apple store. Wow, these things sell themselves! And to think these are the same people who tried to talk me out of buying my first iBook in 2005

    In a way, its kinda funny how different people react to the new iMac systems. My son "loves" our new iMac 21.5" system. He cannot get enough of it. And at times, I have to "boot him away" from its keyboard - so I can use it. My wife loves our new iMac system as well. For my daughter, she's like "what ever!" attitude. She can use either our previous Win 7 HP laptop or our new iMac with ease. Either system is ok with her. Especially surfing the web type tasks. As we say in my family, "use what ever tool they like the best (for their liking)". For me, I can use either system as well. Although, I'm a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer on the Win xx platforms...

    Good luck - which ever system they do decide to use....
