OT: iMac

Just popped out to the Apple Store and picked up my new 20" 2.4 gig iMac.

The thing is so beautiful it makes you want to have an accident in your pants .......

10.5 not installed but chucked in the box for me to do later.

Ahhhhh - its sat next to my screens at works and just looks the dogs bollocks

congrats - you'll love 10.5 too. You didn't ask the Apple store to provide you with extra memory or anything did you? If not, good because you can get extra memory elsewhere for less...

90 for a 1gb SoDimm? You must be joking.

I bought one for my Dell laptop a couple of months ago from Crucial for about 35 delivered.

scroll the pic to the right, and you'll see that the third screen is Tony's new 20" iMac.. and it look a hell of a lot more modern than the two PC screens on the left...

Tony (the other one)

Looks great. Nothing like having 2 screens on your work PC either, love it.
How do you get on with that weird new apple keyboard thing though? looks like it should be rolled up. Saw one in John Lewis recently.

Im only trying to wind people up about the computers as i love advancements in technology, however i draw the line at actually looking at computers, id rather discuss what they can do, you southern shandy drinker

I'm actually a northerner Steve so nurrrr (well for half my life anyway). Fair play though, and I did have a shandy tonight so its a fair cop

If you like cars and car design then why not computers? Things have to look good as well as go fast surely?

i think its probbaly as i dont work with them all the time they dont really interest me. As long as i can type a letter and print it, do emails, search the web and order stuff online for me thats job done
i do have a 21inch screen laptop though - it did cost a lot

Having just destroyed my home network (this message being brought to you by the delights on my Blackberry) I am now at one with Steve 'Barney Rubble' A.

How could it have possibly been a good idea to drink a bottle of wine and 3 tins of Stella and then play with my router settings?

Bollocks!!!

PS - Carl, tonight I am just going to ignore your complete shite and wallow in my own personal IT hell.
