    Hey. So Christmas is comming up soon and I am trying to convince my dad to get the new iMac. The problem is my dad works for Samsung and everything we own is Samsung; we've never thought about buying an Apple product before although he is well aware of the popularity. I have come up with a few arguments to convince him to get the iMac.

    1. the simplicity (only 2 wires)
    2. no need to purchase webcam separately to chat with my sister who's in college.
    3. boot camp (windows xp/vista) for his office/work purposes.
    4. easy-to-use
    5. will pay him $200 if affordability is a problem.

    So please list any more convincing arguments to help me out for Christmas. Thanks alot. -Jin

    Don't some imacs have Samsung LCD panels in them? That could be some ammo.

    You can replace the RAM with Smasung chips if they aren't already. :D

    You can try turning a current Samsung into a Hackintosh, but the experience may backfire. :p

    The only reason to get a Mac is the Mac OS, unless you want to pay for a non-Centrino, Centrino-esque machine (the similar Intel chips switched with another vendor.)

    So ... sell the Mac OS, or know thy enemy. :cool:
