Well as many of you know I just sold my Last Gen 24" iMac..

I was originally going to build a PC in a few months, but now I am looking at getting a new iMac.

I was looking at the Apple store yesterday, and since I am a student I can get a free iPod, printer and $100 off my iMac. (For a total of $400 in savings.)

This is a pretty damn good deal! ANd if you consider the new 24" iMacs are $200 cheaper than the old ones. That is even a better deal.

I am very much so considering just buy a new 24". I would end up saving a lot of money in the long run and still have a nice computer.

It may not have the graphics power I desire, but I am not sure If i want to give up OSX, the sleek/neat look, and a much cheaper price...


Plus I already got a virus on this crappy dell I am using... :mad:

Turn away from the dark side before it is too late ! You have seen the error of your ways ...

Seriously the number of people i know who spend half of their time with a home PC battling against spyware and viruses plus all the stupidity that comes with Microsoft . . . unless you really must have that water cooled games machine go for a mac.

Lol... Same thing happened to me when I bought a Dell WinPC, no matter what the hell you do (beside unplug from the Internet) those suckers keep on coming...

I can not wait until I get to use Mac OS X again...

But seriously, you should go to the Mac side... I mean what are you going to do with a GeForce 8800 card when the OS (Vista) itself slows that **** down...

DON'T GET AN iMAC!!

Steve has put a second iSight inside that black glassy apple logo below the screen!! It takes pictures of you and sends them to Al Gore's data base which will be used for New World Purposes once he is president and wants to make you a subject of his realm!!!












just kidding.

So you came crawling back did you? Couldn't say no to a free iPod and a printer could you? Read the promising benchmarks at barefeet did you?

:D

Be nice!

Basicly I can get a 24" for 1600 after I consider the free printer/iPod and I pay Tax.


At 1600 the iMac is a steal. I could not build one for anywhere close to that price.

Hey, I was only kidding :)

Yeah I bought mine with students discount as well. Too bad you don't get a free iPod and printer in the Swedish store :(

I'll be getting it tomorrow. Yay! Hope there's nothing wrong with it.
