Hello Everyone! You might or might not remember me, but I was the guy who wasn't too sure about getting a Mac Mini or Macbook a few weeks back. Well, I got some good news, my plans for the Mini got Upgraded.....Quite a lot. I'm now the proud owner of a brand spankin' new iMac. The day started off funnily, when I woke up, my mom told me to pickup all the apples that fell off the tree in our back yard and throw them out. I laughed because I thought it was a sign from above telling me I'm getting a Mac Today But unfortunately i thought it was a bad omen after i was done picking up a crap load of rotten bug infested apples . So I went to the apple store today all pumped for either a Macbook or a Mini, I went with my family in tow. I was really excited because I would finally get my reward for working my ass off during the summer. So with around $900 bucks I saved up (My dad is covering however much more I owe for whatever I buy, I'm going to pay him back at a later date). Now I was ready to get 'a' spendin on some fine apple merchandise. We got inside the apple store (Sherway Gardens for all those Canadians Out there) and it was PACKED! So I run right in and get to the nearest Macbook on display, I showcase it to my family and they seem to like it, but they like the "Silver thing" on display. That silver thing was the iMac. So I show them the iMac, they're quite impressed while I launch up iTunes and play some Dani California, while showing off Expose and the iSight. Unfortunately I don't think they had a Mac Mini on display, so i couldn't show that to them. My parents then ask me "what's the price difference between the Macbook and the iMac?" I check both the price tags, and tell them its about $50. They then are like "Why don't you get that instead?" I then just had one of those "**** why didn't I think of that?" moments. A few weeks before I told them about the Mini, they told me to get the Macbook instead, I didnt tell them about the iMac because I never seemed to be too interested in it. So after screwing around and showing my family some stuff around the apple store, a nice apple sales associate comes up to me. Her name was Christina, we start having a chat. I tell her about all the iMac issues i've been hearing about, and she was suprised. She wanted find out about it, so I took her to Macrumors, but unfortunately the forums were down. After a little more chatting about things, she told me how I already know my stuff quite well. I was like "yeah... thats what happens when you have fantasies about holding a macbook every night" (I think I kinda creeped her out there). So then after final discussions with my parents, I was now decided on the 20inch 2.0ghz iMac . It's funny I came in for a Macbook or a Mini, but was now about to walk out with an iMac. I also picked up a Canon PIXMA MP470 while I was at it. (Costs $20 after $130 rebate). Once we got to the counter, to pay my dad's debit card ran into some bank purchase limit restriction ( He apparently has some limit on how much money can be spent at once). After about an hour, that all got sorted out, and I was on my way home with a brand spankin' new iMac! An apple employe helped me take it to the car, on my way all these people were like "He's Getting an iMac!" or they were just looking at it This one guy was walking by with a MacBook Pro box in hand, and said to his wife "Wow the iMac's pretty huge." After while in the elevator the employee helping me take the mac to car started having a chat with me, she told me that "Once you go Mac, you'll never go back" I laughed I was anxious to get home and power my bad ass iMac up So here are my Pictures. New iMac! iMac With Printer Old Setup. Good Bye PC My Cat Inspecting the new box (dont worry only looks sad, because of the flash blinding it) Opening up the iMac: My New Setup: Leopard: The leopard upgrade had some issues, when it was done, It wouldn't let me login, so I had to Archive and Install, kinda pissed me off, but can't blame apple, Leopards still new. I think the whole Screen issue is blown out proportion, I didn't notice any problems at the store, and don't notice anything on my screen. My iMac has yet to freeze, lets hope that stays like that. Overall my First ever mac purchase has been an amazing experience. It has helped me learn that money is hard as **** to earn, and I am truly grateful for all the things my parents do for me. Now I just have to learn and get used to Mac OSX, currently the only thing bothering me is the lack of right click Hope You Enjoyed it! For all of you holding back on your iMac Purchases, I would say goto the store and check out the iMac yourself, and if you like it buy it, if you don't, wait.
