    Ever consider a Mac mini? I made the switch a little over three years ago. Now I have a 24" iMac a 11" Mac book air (awesome I must say). My employer replaced my Dell desk top with a 24" Mac (at my request) a year and a half ago and recently got me a second 27" iMac for other job duties last February. I have only had one issue with all of them - the heads died on my 24" work iMac. I swapped out the hard drive and it's back better than before! The Macs are worth the extra $!

    Yes i have considered that as an option. I got one for my mother about 5 years ago after she kept complaining about her desktop pc. I like the mini, but its not my preferred option for a desktop, not a bad one though. I have been shopping around for used MAC desktops, iMac, and minis and may be able to come uo with something for myself by christmas anyhow. I relly like the 27" iMac for a convenient and beautiful disply in a desktop as i have now been spoiled by the display on my ipad, i cant look at my other monitors without a little hatred.

    I love the 27 iMac I have at one of my offices. It is beautiful. I can't wait until I have an excuse to hand my 24 iMac to my kids. Then it's the 27 for me with as many thunderbolt ports as possible!

    I've been using the AVG 7.5 for the past several months and I haven't had any problems since installing. Just wanted to share.

    Galaxy S II is crap, imo. Once you get past the shiny screen (which is still rated 2nd behind the Retina display) its still buggy ole' Android. Dont get me wrong, android is good. Its what I have for my work. Phone + point to signature + but its nowhere near iOS imo.

    Sent from The Droid... The one you were looking for...

    It would be perfect if they add BBE EQ they would be future proof just for the sound options!

    2 weeks ago I was debating whether to go for a Samsung Galaxy SII or the iphone 4. I eventually chose the iphone for the following reasons:-

    1. The Galaxy is too big, great for watching video etc, but the beautiful display and resolution of the iphone is, IMO superior.

    2.Although the camera on the iphone4 is only 5MP, the quality of photos are amazing. My brother is a photographer and tells me that it's pixel quality that makes the difference.

    3. iOS is way better, more stable and easier to use than Android. I've had a SE Xperia X10 for over a year and even with the Gingerbread update my phone kept on switching itself off (friends who use android say the same!)

    4.Build quality is exceptional with the iphone. As with all Apple products, the design and quality really is second to none.

    5.Last, but not least, there is the software.....no comparison. I've downloaded masses of Apps and not one has caused me problems.

    I'm so pleased I decided to opt for the iphone4. I don't even care about the iphone5 because I'm enjoying using this one so much. Just looking forward to the iOS5!!!

    Agreed, at one time Nokia was simply untouchable, it has lost that edge badly.

    I think the downward spiral was started with their one time flagship the N95 8GB. While it had a gps receiver it did not work with their later mapping software, stupidity in ignoring users complaints meant a big chunk of that customer base started to look elsewhere, which has an avalanching effect.

    Yep I currently have a Android EVO 4G on Sprint. 4G will be key for me getting the iPhone 5, mainly because Sprint's 3G really sucks where I'm at. If the iPhone 5 ships without 4G, the Galaxy S2 will likely be my next phone until the iPhone 6 arrives.
