How 'bout one of these puppies!
The new 27" iMac
Tom macwave:... don't tell Lisa!)
I've been dreading this day I now have screen envy!
OMG. That's less than a house so I might get it past the commitee
It's bad folks very very bad.
I already have a macbook pro, I have a mac pro and I have monitors everywhere.
I saw the 27" and I have to have one noooo nooooo I cant I mustnt .... but I know I will
Not good at all.... apple I hate you whilst secretly loving you at the same time. why must you do this to me
Why... so you can watch HD movies and get your email all in one place of course!
Tom macwave:... instigator maximus!)
you sir have a very valid point indeed. How could I ever have doubted the way of the mighty apple
(I do still have that apple developer 20% discount burning a hole......)
We'll have to recruit Terry and go on a mac buying spree!
I think his next go is a lappie. At least that's what Sue said! Guess who wins!
Tom macwave:... knows which side the bread is buttered on!)
I think that's the right way to go... laptop first
ok, so Josh, me and skywatcher are upgrading to the 27" imac
Terry's up for a macbook
Tink wants a macbook pro to replace her rubbish winblows laptop and a 27" imac to replace her old powerpc model
Who else is coming shopping?
I love the fact they are advertising it with a screenshot of the star trek movie - its like they know their audience so well
me wants to
take it it doesnt come with blu ray as that would swing it
apparently not which is a stupid omission IMHO although of course you can feed in from apple tv thing, watch HD downloads and even use the huge monitor as a second display.
Ive seen 30" monitors go for not much less than that whole 27" imac and in person it just looks amazing.
Do you think we'll get a group discount? I also get a huge student discount and you have your 20%... perhaps they'll just give us them!
Er........ Keith any chance you could go shopping for me
It really is extremely tempting isn't it mmmmmmmm
Yes yes it is.
I would have put in an order already if it had blu ray as it would have been a no brainer
yeah I admit that's a puzzling omission :/ it was very widely rumoured to be in this revision but taken out just before launch. To not even be a build option is truly strange.
TO BE HONEST, for me it doesn't matter. I'm on the computer almost 24*7, so if I want to watch a movie, I want to watch it on tv not on a computer screen but I can see how this one would fit in great into a lounge environment so people may want to use it for that.
For me it's more about a) the resolution b) the all in one tidy unit
It would cost me v.v.v.nearly as much as the whole imac 27" to buy a monitor of equivalent resolution! Feels more sensible to pay a couple of hundred extra and get the whole mac!
