    The iMacs are a very capable all-in-one computer. The build quality is certainly nicer than the Dell. As far as the display goes, I doubt the Ultrasharp offers anything special, since the resolution is the same. Apple always has had top quality displays, and the new iMacs are improved over the 2011 models (which I have). They cut the screen reflections by 70%.

    The i7 is an option, but it will cost $200 extra. If you "trick out" the iMac, the price will go up a fair amount.

    Regarding the hard drive, Apple has a new option ($250 extra) called the FusionDrive. It combines a solid state drive with a traditional hard drive in one package. Your apps are on the SS part, and it intelligently puts your most used files on the SS aide as well. That. Way, you get most of the speed of a solid star drive, while still having the storage space of a standard HD. It's the way to go for maximum speed if you can afford it.

    The new iMacs have dropped the optical disc drive, so if you use that a lot, you'll need the the stand-alone SuperDrive added. They also have dropped firewire in favor of USB 3 with the new models.

    I got a refurbished 2011 27" iMac, and I'm quite happy with it. I saved a good bit of money, and it had the older connections and optical drive still, which I have use for. It as a top of the line BTO machine, with the i7 processor, and 2GB RAM on the video card.

    The great thing about Macs these days, is that they can run whatever operating system you want. You can partition the drive with BootCamp, and have Windows on it as well. That way, you can boot up as a Mac, or a Windows machine. If you go the "virtual machine" route with software like Parallels, you can even run both OS simultaneously. Migrating your apps and files from a PC is very easy as well....... Apple makes these tasks simple.

    Norv Turner is probably headed to be Rob Chudzinski's offensive coordinator in Cleveland. No deal done ... BTW, he's vacationing in Hawaii.

    That was great, thank you Herr Meister Blew :)

    The less reflective screen is a definite plus, but the lack of optical drive is a major draw back for me. which I had not obviously paid attention too :( If I buy the stand alone super drive, then it adds to the cost and of defeats the objective of an all-in-one! I will be trolling the refurbished dept of the Apple website, but I'm a bit hesitant about the earlier models, so I missed on a 27" iMac they had as a refurb a few days ago.

    The SuperDrive only adds $79 to the price, and it's pretty sleek (as most Apple products). It won't really ruin the look of the all-in-one computer (same brushed aluminum finish). Not a major detriment..... in my view, anyway.

    Have a feeling there will be first edition copy hidden somewhere in the CD household and not necessarily on the coffee table. Unless Mrs. CD is also a fan ;)

    Seems some people don't think the Chargers personnel would make a good fit for a switch to the 4-3

    Kevin O'Connell@KevOC7
    @UTKevinAcee @sddemar The 4-3 3tech is basically a 3-4 end, so either luiget or Reyes sit. Not to mention who plays weak side LB.

    No I can't ..... I was sitting having a smoke, staring at all the boxes, hoping they'd somehow magically unload themselves onto the trolley and into the stores ......

    As hard I tried, those bastards never did move by themselves...... :(

    Ummmmm, wonder why that would be ....... Bastards have enough difficulty still figuring out the 3 - 4 from what I've seen and the turnstile that is the DC position of late, would support that theory I do believe

    Not a consideration Blitzy. Me and my German gal got past that kind of stuff around our 10th wedding anniversary - we will celebrate our 49th at the end of next month. ;) Of course, that still doesn't keep me from catching a sharp little elbow to the ribcage if I ogle too long down on the boardwalk, etc., to suit her mood. :D

    This August will mark 50 years since I joined the Navy - sure will be glad when I'm finally qualified for the title "Old Salt". :cool:
