Overnight Apple released their new iMacs (as well as some new software etc).
I have a love/hate relationship with Apple. They are crazy megalomaniacs, their fans are crazy megalomaniacs, and they make some really cool stuff.
But is it just me, or is the new iMac… ugly?
The old one was white and clean and sexy. This one looks awkward.
The metal covering seems out of place. The black apple logo is horrible and far too dominant. The black border around the screen puts me off completely, and the shiny screen would be useless in this office where I have windows behind me.
Having said that, if I had $2000, i would be queuing up today to buy one. The iMovie / iDVD / garageband software package is such a great package – way better than anything on the pc. Get those creative juices flowing…
And fortunately now, when Apple’s software shortcoming shine through (and they will) dualbooting into Windows is an option.
And I’m willing to give the weird keyboard the benefit of the doubt.
If only I could get my hands on one…
