As title states wife spending our hard earned cash. If you have followed any of my posts/threads you will know that I have had the C2D iMac for the last couple of years but never been very fond of the reflective monitor. I love the design and performance but not the screen Anyway to cut a long story short I purchased the new i5 Mini as soon as it was released and married it to a 24" matte screen - job done one happy user. Wife comes home last night from a days shopping trip and asked if I would help bring in a large package from the car. Imagine my surprise when I got to the car and saw a large box containing a brand new stock base 21.5" iMac. After recovering from the shock wife explains that as I have a new Mini she wanted the latest iMac and some friends of ours are willing to buy our old one for well over half of what we paid for it, what could I say? As it has come with SL installed I have just downloaded Lion and made a bootable install DVD before doing the install. I have done a Time machine install onto the new machine so everything should be running ship shape in no time at all. I have to say that the i5 is noticably quicker than the old C2D. Can anyone recommend a safe and secure method for wiping the HD totally. I usually use a hammer to smash my old drives when getting rid of a computer but not an option with the all in one especially since someone is buying it. Wives eh, I am going to hide her credit cards next time she goes shopping.
