As many of you know the iMac line was refreshed on Monday, April 28. For about 6 months I had been wanting to purchase a new computer, but I kept holding off for some reason. When I heard the rumors about the iMac update, I made up my mind that I would finally purchase one.
By the way, this is not my first Apple computer. I have had a 14" (1.33ghz) iBook for years now. I knew what to expect in terms of the initial setup of the iMac based off of my previous experience with Apple products. And I also knew my way around OSX pretty well.
I ordered the iMac the day it was updated. I don't game on my computer anymore (I have a 360, Wii, and PS3) so I figured I would go with the lower end of the 24" models. I selected the free shipping so I wasn't expecting to receive the iMac for about a week, but to my surprise it was delivered to my house on Wednesday, April 30...not even 2 full days after I placed my order. I was pretty happy with that to say the least.
My initial thought when I saw the box was, wow that's going to be huge. And believe me, I was right with my initial assessment.
