    Man, it's his money, i'm sure he knows exactly what he is buying. I hate when people (i'm guilty of doing this as well so i'm not singling anyone out) say, "why buy X instead of Y when you can get Y for Z cheaper?" There are somethings that just feel better on a Mac or are only available on a Mac. He could buy a hackintosh but doesn't want to go through the effort. For all we know he could be a $#@!ing millionaire and a few hundred means nothing to him.

    But yeah, I remember thinking how crazy the concept of Carmageddon was when i was a youngster. I bet it doesn't even phase the younger kids of today. Crazy to think how a game that was banned in so many places years ago gets released easy as anything today!

    And the truth shall set you free! If I could buy my exact 27" iMac for less, I would. If you can find me an all in one computer with lightening bolt, firewire, usb, sd card, superdrive, with bluetooth mouse and low profile keyboard, with the same 27" LED screen, running Mac OSX Mountain Lion, with full warranty and support, then I would. But I have never found one, and I have no time or desire to build a computer and hack an OS onto it.

    Apple products sell well because of people like me. It just works, works great, looks great and has full coverage.

    Not telling him what to do with his money... I'm telling him what his money is getting. The iMac is a solid computer. I have one in front of me right now.

    But that's what I mean. I'm sure he is fully aware of what he is getting. I doubt he will impulse buy that. Unless not everyone is like me and doesn't review the $#@! out of everything and anything (I love reading reviews. I even read reviews of things i've already bought and movies i've watched )

    It's like my friend who recently bought the S3 and he is determined to make me buy that rather than the iPhone 5 "Oh but dude it does this this and this better than the iPhone and it's cheaper" ARGHHHHHHH

    I know where you're coming from as the same thing pisses me off... lol.

    I can't use anything but OS X for audio/video these days, so Windows isn't an option as a workstation. I use Windows for gaming, though.

    On a side note, I hate Android.

    I know exactly what components are in an iMac and their capabilities. And I still wanted one since early 2012.

    What can I say? I'm sick of windows and building PCs isn't fun anymore. I stopped playing PC games and my video transcoding needs will be well covered by an iMac.
    I look forward to Apple's ecosystem and plan to make the most of it.

    Plus I'll get it tax free.

    The iMac should be more than enough for your video editing needs. I've been editing 4K video on mine and it works just fine... the new ones it should be a snap. One more week and you'll get to see the shiny new iMacs with USB 3.0 and a sleek new design and whatever other magical things they have to show us. I may just sell my current iMac and get the new one... I'll reserve building my own PCs for gaming like I always have.

    Ordered my white iPhone 5 a couple of days ago. Very excited.

    IS that going to hurt Apple or Samsung more?

    Apple.

    Samsung typically provides better quality screens in apple devices than other vendors (like LG).

    Anybody buying a retina mbp next year (likely when they update it) is likely going to be pisses if LG is the sole provider of those screens. (they have significant image retention issues, unlike the Samsung lcd panels)

    It will be interesting to see whether apple simply finds other suppliers or considers making more of their components in house.

    28th of September. But all stores except our first Apple Store in Täby, Stockholm had very limited stock. But I'll make the trip to the Apple Store for any high demand in the future. They had iPhone's for everyone and then some for the iPhone 5 launch. Seems like the best bet.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention Apple is the only one selling unlocked one's as well.

    Nice

    I'm back in the UK now so going to go to my local Apple store(s) and see if any of them have an unlocked handset that I can pick up. I hope the stores have some, i'd be surprised if they didn't.

    Hope you both get your fix.

    On an other note, it smells like iMac today.

    Anyone ever bought a Sim free iPhone before? Whilst looking at Carphonewarehouse's website i came accross this:
    Please note: iPhone will lock itself to the network of the first SIM card that is used in the phone. Subsequently attempting to use it on any other network, for example by replacing the SIM card, may mean it becomes permanently unusable. SIM free iPhones can only be used with a UK-network SIM card, and will not accept foreign SIM cards.


    Is this true even if i buy one directly from Apple? The whole reason i want to buy a sim free phone is so that I can go on different contracts when the time fits. At the moment I want to swap to '3' but in a few months time I may want to go on a whole different network. If that quote is true, it's thrown a spanner in the works.

    If it is properly unlocked (which apple does offer) that it shouldn't be an issue.

    ^^ Yes that sounds weird. If you buy an unlocked iPhone, it should be unlocked, period.

    Don't know about the U.K but iPhone's bought here via Apple for full price that are unlocked are totally unlocked and remains so. Shouldn't be a difference in the U.K. You could always call Apple to ask just to be sure.

    BTW: The event today is streamed live on both the Apple TV and online: http://www.macrumors.com/2012/10/23/...pples-website/

    I hope they continue doing this now!
