I'm a programmer by trade (not a desktop coder, but mainframe/database) and I actually decided to buy the iMac because of my desire to create apps for my iPhone. I was shocked to learn that I could keep my windows environment. I could have both worlds.
So far, everything has been very easy to install and use. I had the windows/vmware setup and the iPhone SDK install the first day. Coming from a PC, I'm delighted at how elegant the interface is, even the mouse and keyboard are elegant. The screen is very nice. Colors seem very good, but I haven't done any photo editing and color correction/matching (so you'll have to get the pros opinion on that one).
Windows runs very well on it and I've had no problems with it.
I can't see changing back to a PC for my uses (not a gamer). This iMac was the best value IMO, compared to the other mac's and macbooks. Even compared to the new mac mini (if you add in the additional cost of a good monitor, bluetooth keyboard and magic mouse, the mini was closing in on the iMac price). I'd recommend this iMac for any deveoper to use as a base system. Power seems more than sufficient add to that the capability to run windows as well and you have one of the best values in a development system I've seen.
All this and lets face it the mac experience is very pleasant, and it doesn't hurt to expand your development into the mac arena.
After one week, I'm already a satified mac user.
I'll update after a year or so of use and abuse.
1 This computer is fast and sleek.Looks beautiful.
2 No noise of fan or so.If one close there eyes,they can hardly tell if it sunning.This is not the case with any other ALLINONE desktops i owned.Ex dell studio 15 makes more noise then my kitchen fan.
3 The hardware is just enough for any thing.500GB hd is PLUS.The ram 4gb is hardly used.
4 Screen is beautiful.For some people the screen is like mirror and gets lots of reflection.But for me i love the screen.The screen can be moved easily if you getting any reflection.The glossy screen makes the view more enjoyable.
5 THE LEOPORD SNOW is very good.No issues so far.For PC users it will take little while to learn the shortcuts.But once they are used to it it will be very fast to access any thing.
6 The MOUSE was never a problem for me.I am so used to use forward and backward on the web pages using this mouse,When i use other mouse my fingers automatically slide.One can really admire the mouse once they get used to it in couple days.
7 Keyboard is small.i would love to have wireless keyboard with the numeric pad.
8 The sound is good on this computer.for a medium room i think this is more then enough.
1 The keyboard could be little better.i mean with numeric pad and more F buttons.
2 there should have a hard button for ejecting the DVD.When i was installing Windows 7 i was stuck with the DVD.Couldnt find a way to eject without loading OS.
3 DVDs with paper stickers on it stucks some time.So be careful if you are inserting a DVD with sticker labels.
Overall very happy with this purchase.
When I first set up my iMac on the desk, I immediately noticed a buzzing sound caused by certain vibration. It's not loud but sufficiently disturbing. I searched the internet and found many people had similar problems with their iMacs too. Some people brought their iMacs back to apple store for service and had some parts (mostly air fans) changed, but not much help. So I decided to have some experiment with my setup. First, I tried my iMac on my kitchen countertop, which is granite. No vibration, no buzzing sound at all. Then I put my laptop PC on my desk, same spot where I put my iMac. LOUD and LOUD buzzing sound. So I knew the problem was caused by the desk, not the iMac. Now I have a photo album with leather cover underneath my iMac. No buzzing sound any more. Very happy with the machine thereafter.
The switch from PC to Mac is easy. We do not need to take any special course or tutorial to get started. Everything is exremely intuitive. From here or there we had some questions, we checked the video clips on apple's website and at one time called apple hotline. Our questions were solved immediately.
Overall, this machine is wonderful. Starts and shuts down super fast. Launches and closes programs super fast.Read more ›
