Mac club snobs
I really find it amusing, I'm killing myself laughing. All these Mac snobs creeping out of the woodwork telling anyone with knowledge about computers that imacs are not designed for gaming, but for the casual user and receptionists. READ the Apple home pages, Steve Jobbs and his team disagree with you. They describe their new machine as the best thing since sliced bread with amazing gaming and graphic potential. Watch the special event where Steve Jobbs presents these new machines, he actually says the graphic card has been upgraded with a better one. (If he can blatently lie about that, what other features is he able to lie aboutt?)
He actually says that professional mac users see this machine as something that looks like a professional machine, even with its cheaper, non-professional GLOSSY sceen. (Bling and chav come to mind)
Personally I think anybody in a well lit office who will have to spend their entire day staring into this screen, even if it's working with documents is going to suffer from some serious migrains. Glossy is not good for the part-time or student graphic desingers, photographers etc either.
I am sure that many companies will be splashing top dollar so their receptionists and other non-professional staff will be able to make the most of them. Just as I'm certain many of the in-crowd will feel pretty pleased with themselves knowing that one of the new imacs is sitting on their designer desk at home, even if they don't know how to use it properly.
I cannot knock OS X or the new ILife, it does look sensational, and if you want to really get your money's worth from what Mac can really offer, then save yourself a shedload and buy a Mac mini.
Oh and you Mac snobs, you know who you are, smell the coffee, the way Macs is increasing its share of the home computer market, you're cause is starting to sound like those people who want the internet to go back to the way it was 15 years ago.
These week's event and their new imac just made the once elite AppleMac and their users, even more ordinary. What next? an IKEA Mac?
