USA Today has a review of intel iMac http://www.usatoday.com/tech/columnist/edwardbaig/2006-01-18-imac-intel_x.htm It is a bit of a mixed bag, because he claims that he had problems with Quicktime (could not view Job's keynote) and his GarageBand program froze up, requiring a "manual shut down". (Does he mean a reboot?) He says: "Intel is Microsoft's longtime partner, and I'm not suggesting guilt by association. But my first encounter with the new Mac was the kind of experience I might have expected to see on a Windows machine." That does not sound too good, does it?
