Official "I Switched" Thread


Recommended Posts

Ok, I can't hold it in. I was going to wait until it was delivered, but I can't just keep this concield. I bought a new 20" iMac, with the following specs:

iMac, 20-inch, 2GHz Intel Core Duo

500GB Serial ATA drive

2GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM - 2x1GB

Accessory kit

SuperDrive 8x (DVD+R DL/DVD+RW/CD-RW)

ATI Radeon X1600/256MB VRAM

Keyboard & Mighty Mouse + Mac OS X - U.S. English

Price: $2,543

Yeah, the most powerful iMac. I maxxed out the specs. Apple just confirmed that they just shipped it, so I should get it by Monday.

I'll post pics of it when I recieve it. Good bye Windows!

So would it be cheaper to order my iMac with 512 MB of RAM and then order more RAM from that website linked above or just buy it all from Apple?

Depends on how much a DDR2 stick costs in a seperate store. It costs only $300 to upgrade to 2GB from the Apple online store. ($600 in a retail store)

But iMacs with 512MB RAM run very well.

Seriously, you should definantly get one. Mine should be arriving to my house via FedEx around Monday or Tuesday. I'm anxious for it. I will have the most powerful computer in my town. :D

Also, I think to upgrade to 1GB of RAM, it's $150. It won't really matter by then because you're already paying so much for it, that's why I maxed out my specs. :P

I know, I know...mods will yell at me to put this into the Hardware thread but, being a "veteran" of AS from the old days I figured that I deserved my own 8(

I just ordered a new Macbook Pro yesterday, with a keyboard, Aperture and 2gb of ram. Since 2001 I have modded my computer to be like a Mac, and in 2006 I finally scrape the cash together to buy one.

Thanks for all the cool customization and bantering over the years.

I finally jumped the Apple-wagon too.

After lot's of Aqua-softing, Aqua-fying and finally OS X 86-ing on my Athlon64 system, yesterday I bought myself the white 2 Ghz/slot loading super-drive featured Macbook, and so far it really just works! I got online wireless without ISP within 10 minutes from unpacking. I am truely amazed...:P

I haven't actually bought one, but I had the chance to play with a MacBook a couple of days ago.

It was stunning just out of the box! The wireless connection was just a click away, iSight was miles ahead of my current webcam, the keyboard felt great, the screen is perfect (although I never liked glossy screens) and Spotlight finds everything in no time.

I could almost hear it whispering "take me home!"

Yea I played around with one in the apple store and was impressed.

I am hoping to get one within a week or so.
