I am so happy that I want to share it with you. My husband ordered an Apple iMac 21.5 inches Desktop for me and it came yesterday evening.
I thought it would take me a while to set it up as I have read many reviews that say that Mac’s Operating System is so different from Windows 7 and kind of difficult to make changes from their usual Windows to a Mac. Out from the box and WOW! This desktop is so cool. It is huge and solid as compared to my two HP laptops and a HP note book which is a HP dv6, a HP dv7 and a HP Mini 1000. I had many issues with my HP laptops and finally we decided to make the change to a Mac.
Now back to my new iMac. I must say that I love the manufacturing components that were used to make this desktop. The quality is excellent. Well worth the price tag for this unit.
It starts off with the Voice over Quick Start using voice over command and using Press Control and Option Key and so forth. I would say it took about 10 minutes to follow through the Voice over Quick Start and I am on the registration process. So far everything is getting on good.
Now I have the registration set up done and I am ready to take on my iMac. It uses Safari and it works so fast. It is so much faster that I have never experienced this with my other laptops and desktops that I have used before. I managed to get on internet easily so all those reviews that I have read don’t really match up with my findings.
The features, utilities and software that come with this iMac are so awesome. After spending an hour comparing this computer with the ones that I have, I finally am entirely convinced that it is well worth the price tag. First of all, even with less RAM, the Mac is so much faster and performed so much better than a tech spec superior PC.
It can run several memory draining and intensive applications like video editing software, iTunes and web browsers playing video simultaneously without any noticeable lag. All the programs start up almost instantly and it work perfect.
Another feature that I love about Apple Mac is that it doesn’t require separate anti-virus software. It is supposed to be virtually safe from hackers. You do not have a dozen McAfee processes running in the background that slow down your computer. That peace of mind for Internet Security alone is well worth the extra money buying a Mac.
With only a few minutes of playing with my iMac, I realized that this computer is very intuitive and it is as easy to use a PC. I may need more time to get to know my iMac but I am already mitten by it.
I have not really tried out everything that comes with my iMac but I know I won’t be disappointed with any of the features and software’s. With Apple standing behind their products, I am sure I will not face issues with my iMac as compared to the many issues I had with my HPs.
For those who are considering a Mac, I should say doesn’t hesitate. It really is well worth your money investing in a Mac. For me it is Peace of mind. I don’t have to worry so much on viruses and that is a plus.
