The major issue I had with the iMac is that my home office is located down in our basement. That's where my iMac is. On the weekends, I've been bringing upstairs and setting it up in the kitchen where my DW works so that we can be together. At least in the same room. The problem comes during the week. My office hours typically run from about 6:30 AM to around 3:30 PM EST. When I get done with my "real" job, I need to be able to work on other "projects" (involving XCode, Wordpress, something else). Well, with the iMac, I need to stay downstairs in my office to work on those projects. I'm not going to schlep the thing up and down stairs daily. But if I stay downstairs, I have an moderately unhappy DW. This does not help create domestic bliss. A laptop solves that issue. At the end of the day, I can easily bring it upstairs and work while my DW reads. This has two benefits. One is I have more time to get something done that will hopefully (at some point) provide some degree of additional income. Secondarily (and probably more important), it please my DW.
In truth, I should have thought of all this before I bought the iMac. But I didn't.
So, heigh ho, heigh ho, it's off the computer dealer I go!
If I can't sell the iMac in the next few days, I'll probably just give it to my daughters family.
