Well, seems like Windows 8 and Microsoft has done it for me, completed my transition to full Apple OS X.

I already have an iPad 64Gb (3rd gen), AppleTV and Apple Airport Express router. I'm going to use my current Mac mini as my HTPC and move my AppleTV to another TV in the house.

Going to keep my Windows 7 PC, as I sometime like to play games not available on Mac or Xbox360.

So, what I purchased is :

iMac 27" with Intel Core i7 3.4Ghz
8Gb RAM (and got Apple 2x8Gb Corsair DDR3-1600 from NCIX), so 24Gb total.
1TB Fusion Drive
GeForce 680MX 2Gb

So now I have to wait 3-4 weeks for delivery... Wow, that's a long wait. Come on Apple!!!

Where is mine? Did you order another iMac for me?

If it doesn't show up here after 4 weeks, I will be mad and add you on the block list.

:huh:

Joking... Congrats on your purchase. Enjoy it as soon as you get your hands on it.

:laugh:

Well, I've replaced my Gen2 iPod Touch with the new one, 32GB. Much nicer than the old one! Gonna fit well with the new iMac!

Used my iPod to death, and the poor battery is just able to last for 1 hour....

My 2nd iPod Touch and iPad2 last about 5 days... my old iPhone last a day. I have Android phone now, lasts about 2 days depends the usages.

You didn't expect to get quality service for your excessively priced hardware purchase surely?

You are lucky, the late 2012 iMac isn't even available for sale in my country.

Except those aren't cheaper than the iMac, and they're aimed at businesses.

Are we in the Mac section of the forum here? If you don't care for Apple product, just don't come here post some crap.

HP Z1, workstation, outdated look and far from cheaper $$...

Oh and it does NOT run OS X!
