The high quality screen alone is with the price. And I save so much money with the free and/or cheep apple software to run it, it was a no briner to invest a little more up front, for a Mac. Plus, no annual virus protection cost. One day, the hardware will fail. It is still a computer, made up of cheep parts. But I have no doubt this machine will still run the most demanding programs in 5 years. How many windows based PC's can say that?
With apple support, I always talk to an American on the phone, that know their stuff. The wifi was a breeze to set up. All my printers and external hardware were plug in and play. For music production, this is the perfect machine.
I purchased the Apple IMac 21.5 Desktop MC309LL/A (May, 2011) for my very own Christmas present. I have been using an Apple/Mac since the early 9o's. I have one of the earliest IMac that still works. It is in storage, but still works. It was a Blueberry model. It has taken me a little while to get used to my new Mac. I use a Magic Trackpad with it. It took about six hours to transfer all my files from my other computer. Some of the files are duplicates but I want to find a new home for my older Mac. It is a 1 GHz Power PC 4 with 768 MB of Ram. I will be looking for a new home for it. It does have a 17 inch monitor. The new IMac was used but just a short time. Unfortunately some of the programs will not work with my new iMac. I do not regret buying my almost new IMac as it iis very fast. As most of my work will be with photos, I am looking for a good program to edit my pictures. Delivery was extremely fast. It only took three days for its delivery.
I bought this just to get wider screen and updated technology after using 2008 iMac. Mountain Lion had been tinkered with so it came up on white text and black background before the OS X came up. I fixed that by erasing it and installing my own Mountain Lion I wanted to move 2008 technology to 2011.. Otherwise this product works just as good as my old one did.
This is the first Mac I've ever owned myself. I've had plenty of experience using them, but at home I've used Windows and Linux for a long time. Whereas the price of Macs always kept me away from buying, I've always known from my Mac-head friends that they last longer, perform better, and are composed of higher quality parts. So, I needed a new machine, because my Dell isn't doing well, and I saved up and bought the iMac.
I admit to being seriously impressed. It's by far the quickest responding machine I've ever owned. It's also exceedingly stable. Currently my iMac has been running for about a month straight without crashing, needing to restart, or even slowing down one bit, and I've been running resource intensive applications such as Ableton Live along with a slew of software synth plugins, and the Netbeans IDE and the Eclipse IDE. All along video chatting with people over Skype.
Oddly enough, and this is very strange, after an update to iTunes, iTunes began to perform strangely, like it sometimes won't respond right away to mouse clicks or keyboard shortcuts. Who knows what that's about though. The only other complaint I have is that the keyboard is really quite small, and I have big hands. I'd also like to have a numeric keypad on the right hand side in addition to the keys above.
I am very pleased with my iMac. Just how resource efficient it is while running my Digital Audio Workstation apps is reason enough. If you need a powerful machine with rock solid stability then consider one of these iMacs. Or if you can afford it then get a Mac Pro tower with 12 cores and 64GB of memory!
I have been a MAC user for a long time. I own an iMac and a Macbook Pro.
Apple products are honestly made of top quality materials and they always last way longer than Windows. Macs have the fastest responding time and are very user friendly. Whatever you need is just one click away. The touchpad is really smart, too. Although there are many people say Mac is bad and expensive for no reason, it's because most of them have not used one for a while. You can use a mac for a long time without needing to restart it or shut it down. Also over the past years that I have been using Mac neither on my macbook pro and iMac it has crashed. I know it is more expensive than Windows, but it honestly pays for itself. Don't be afraid and invest your money on something that will hold its value for a long time and you don't have to be afraid of any crashes or anything. If you still need to use windows, you can have windows on it too! so there are no other excuses ;)
But seriously a mac will keeps its value always high. You can still sell a 6 year old macbook more expensive than a windows laptop that you but today!!
Just buy it, I guarantee you won't regret it. Don't listen to windows lovers, because they are yet to experience MAC!!!
