The new iMac…

I’ve always eyed the Apple machines with a certain kind of glee. I think I’d use one more as a Unix workstation than anything else, but they’re nice nonetheless.
The first iMac (with CRT) was definitely ugly, the next one (lamp) was “meh!” but this one is actually tempting (especially that it’s 25dB quiet) — ignoring the abysmal GPU. The middle option configured to my tastes (wireless everything, 512mb RAM) would set me back about €1850 (whereas a comparable, traditional Dell-PC would cost €1750). Maybe they’ll include a proper graphics chip in their upgrade in ~6 months time, and if a financial reevaluation at that time yields positive results, I might actually buy an Apple (probably not as “primary” computer, though).
