Not quite - they didn't test the NEW 3.06 GHz iMac.
If you had to guess, which unit do you think might be noisier? And which one more efficient? And which one might last longer?
I don't see why people can't accept the fact that the iMac is a good deal, compared with the closest similar offerings from Dell and HP. Again, it's for those who want the convenience of a good performing all-in-one computer. If you want to argue that Apple should make an affordable headless Mac, then that's fine (and I agree with you - I don't think they should make a bare bones budget computer, but I'd like a mid-priced tower). That doesn't take away from the fact that...
That's exactly the point - iLife is way better than anything (and everything) that comes with the other two computers, so it is an advantage for Apple. Now maybe the category should have been listed as "software in the box." Then there would be no argument, correct?
You're grasping at straws. The comparison is for those people who want the advantages of an all-in-one. Is that so hard to understand? Nowhere does the report say this is the best computer you can buy (or put together) for a certain amount of money. It merely says that for comparable manufacturers' all-in-ones, Apple has slightly better value than Dell or HP.
Are you on drugs? iLife comes free with the computer - if Dell or HP gave you any decent software in the box, it would have been included also as an advantage for them. All those titles you're talking about would add hundreds of dollars to the price. Sheesh.
I hope it's not polyester.
I don't know where you're getting that from. From Apple's website: Resolution 20-inch model: 1680 by 1050 pixels 24-inch models: 1920 by 1200 pixels
You're totally wrong about that. Macs are very popular with small businesses, even ones that aren't graphic design studios. Many accountants and other number crunchers use Macs. There are not good reasons for Apple to leave out the number pad as the default - make it an option and that's fine. But it's not just the number pad that's missing. The full-size arrow keys are much better, plus you have a right delete key that's in a great place. I can't imagine doing anything...
Not true - plastic cracks (and I have the iMac to prove it - an inch long crack coming out of the lower right corner of the screen (though not visible unless you know it's there). The computer is over 4 years old (original iMac G5), but I haven't moved it, except twice for repairs. Aluminum is much more durable. And aluminum doesn't biodegrade in a landfill, it doesn't go into the landfill at all - it's recyclable, made into new aluminum products. Yes, thank you Al Gore...
