What UPS are you using for your IMAC?
BackUPS 650. I lost power once in the middle of a backup, and I was able to finish the bu and shut down normally. Without it, I might have lost both the internal and BU drives. And a BackUPS CS 500 for my peripherals. I could get by running everything off the 650, but splitting them up insures that I'll have enough juice for everything to finish whatever I'm doing.
They work so well I even have a BackUPS CS 500 for my TV and DVD player. I think they're invaluable. Everyone should have one.
I'm using the BackUPS Pro 700. Staples has a whole range of models at pretty good prices.
For my iMac and 2nd monitor, a CyberPower 1500VA pure sine wave: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00429N19W/ref=wms_ohs_product?ie=UTF8&psc=1
For the cable modem, router and scanner, a CyberPower simulated/stepped sine wave: http://www.amazon.com/CyberPower-CP...1500VA-Mini-Tower/dp/B000FBK3QK/ref=pd_cp_e_0
I understand the new IMAC is using a PFC power supply and that any UPS that doesn't provide a pure sine wave while on battery can be problematic. The APC backups doesn't offer a pure sine wave while on battery but their more expensive models do. Thus the reason for my question.
APC 'Smart-UPS'. Best accessory I ever got for my Mac.
