I bought the mid-range iMac 21.5'' from Best Buy for a good deal (1079 incl tax). I like the iMac, but I have to be honest, the Serial ATA is a bit painful (6 mins to install OS update, 35-45 seconds to sign-in screen from boot) and I notice tiny hangups here and there that kind of bother me (running on SSDs for 2+ years does spoil one so). My MBA boots to sign-in screen in 12 seconds, after all. Anyway MBA will probably be going away for repair (and who knows for how long), so I'm thinking I keep the iMac for a bit and then return it to Best Buy before the 14 days are up. Or return it tomorrow and live off my iPhone only while MBA is repaired. And then I'll continue to ponder getting a special order iMac with SSD. Or just get nothing and wait until probably 2015 for the new iMac refresh. Or something. I dunno. The SSD iMac is just so $$. I half bought the iMac just because I've been on the damn fence for so long. Some people just have to learn things on their own. Sorry for the kind of vent post. I'm just not into returning stuff in this manner (try before you *really* buy -ish). There is no point to use a PC anymore. My desk does look extra productive with both, though.
