I have a Dell Dimension 8100. 1.4GHz- various upgrades have resulted in me forgetting what specific stats I have. They don't actually make these anymore, so I couldn't find a picture. I just recently realized that my computer will be 4 years old this January. Sigh. :mellow:

I have considered getting a mac for my next computer. One of my friends has an iBook, and it seems to be working out well. I kinda liked the iMac with the dome (G4). I'm not so sure I like this new one:

iMac G4

But I haven't ruled out a Vaio. Those are definately cool, plus I have a Sony digital camera.

Its a shame too. Those look better than the new ones. I don't like how the G5 has a slot loading disk drive on the side.

I have likes and dislikes on both, I think I slightly like the dome better (and not just because I just bought it).

I like the new one because, it is more powerful. I also like that the speakers are integrated and it comes standard with wireless keyboard and mouse. The styling I'm a little meh on. The big space below the monitor is displeasing, I like that with the dome I am just looking at what is on the monitor, there's nothing to distract from what's on the screen.

The dome I like how the monitor can be moved around. It's very handy to pull the monitor forward if I want to sit back and read somthing, or to turn the monitor to the side if I'm working on my other computer and want to refer to what I have open on the mac.

I wish the styling of the new one wasn't such a departure from the last one. They should have kept the basic design of the dome, and allowed the monitor to be removable for wall mounting or whatnot.
