Apple updates iMac: “More Power. Thinly disguised.” hmmm.

Apple, Inc updated their iMac line today. The processor speed, graphics, etc. Big whoop. iReally thoght there was going to be some sort of multi-touch didn’t you?

imac

Also, My iMac broke yesterday. That’s right. In fact it broke DURING a Safari upgrade, convenient wouldn’t you say? The people at the Apple store seemed to think so as iHad to pay them for the power supply issue which might not even be the root of the problem, the power supply is $80.00 to replace and $80.00 to open up, throw in some taxes and I’m paying $170.00+ to maybe/perhaps/if-i’m-lucky they’ll fix it. The issue could also be the logic board, which would cost $500-700 to fix, so screw that. i’ll likely need a new mac.

But will iNeed a new iMac? It is just a little too expensive isn’t it. The fact that it doesn’t come with at least two gigs of RAM, multi-touch, and a glossy screen that may have 20 times less resolution than the 24″ imac, are major downers for me. “iWant too, iJust don’t think iCan.”

Should iBuy a new iMac? Maybe, but for reasons listed above – iDon’t think so.

Should iBuy the a newish mac pro? YES! iJust can’t afford it right now. (but someday!)

Should iBuy the mac mini? Likely – but that integrated graphic card and low max ram isn’t exactly a closing argument.

So what mac should iBuy and why? What do you have

    Do you really think they would release a major product upgrade such as touchscreen iMacs pre-WWDC? Seems a bit optimistic on your part that the feature would even be released, let alone at such an obscure time. Secondly, I’m having trouble understanding how you are able to blame a Safari upgrade for your PSU and/or logic board failure.

    What’s the trouble, this is the second time this has happened. Sometimes when you install an upgrade, the logic board goes. iKnow, because it happened to me with my g4. So now this, iBought both the computers off eBay so i”m not 100% blaming the product, I’m blaming me a little too – but sure as rain, this happened. iDon’t think touch screen imacs are coming at WWDC either. iThought that last year,hopefully my mac won’t break next time.
