i'm looking at buying a new computer and i quite like the look of the 17inch intel imac(alway wanted an apple for some reason) but i can only find details comparing it to previous apple models, can anybody suggest a comparitive pc model or any similar info so i can judge wheather the extra expense of an apple can be justified. i only use my current pc for the standard basic tasks(music internet microsoft office etc) if that is of any use. thanks
I haven't had any "hands on" experience with an imac, so best answered by someone who has. Compared to the MT40 laptop I mentioned, I think that would give you a significant performance boost over your present setup.
right can someone please correct me if im wrong, but isnt the processor used in this imac essentialy a laptop processor, and when looking at dell models i can configure them with 3+GHz dual core intel processors so isnt this imac processor a vastly inferior component or am i missing the point completely?
I am the proud owner of a new Apple MacBook Pro laptop 15". Previously I had a PowerBook G4.
I bought that MacBook pro as I was quite keen to run both Windows and MacOS on one machine. Windows XP was a dream to setup on the MacBook Pro. This now will allow me to put my PC into "retirement" as I prevously was not able to use my Apple for applications like Outlook and Quicken. Now I am able to do so.
In fact i feel that windows runs more faster than on my main desktop machine which is a Pentium 4 2.8Ghz with 1GB RAM. However, I have yet to install addiional software like Office or Quicken on the MacBook Pro.
