New iMac receives CNET Editor's Choice

iMac, CNET Editor's Choice

Apple's newly released aluminum and glass iMac has received a CNET Editors Choice award for its best-in-class design and solid-feeling thin keyboard. "The new Apple iMac desktop offers more performance and features than many Windows-based PCs; robust iLife '08 digital media suite," said CNET reviewer Rich Brown. "Unless you're a gamer or an upgrade enthusiast, we can think of very few reasons not to make an iMac your next desktop." Brown points to a lack of publicly available upgrade information to Apple's forthcoming Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard as one of the few downfalls of the new machine, and describes iPhone support as "anemic." "Unlike Sony's, HP's, and others' all-in-one efforts, no other vendor comes close to Apple's near-seamless aesthetic." Apple unveiled the new machine on Tuesday during a special event held at the company's headquarters in Cupertino, CA.

    telephone support

    The article says that Apple's 90 days of phone support is anemic; has nothing to do with the iPhone. Let's read the article next time...

    pro-Apple article atCNET?

    Uh oh. Who is this Rich Brown and how did he sneak a pro-Apple article past the CNET editors? No doubt he'll be driving the CNET garbage truck by next week.

    Re: telephone support

    Hey, that's a little harsh. I'm sure they read the article. Its more likely crappy copy-editing regarding a typo. MacNN is quite known for that.

    But who cares

    What does CNET know anyway. They probably had to read the directions to know that you needed to plug the computer into the wall

    About time

    These windows shills can't hide Apple anymore. The market share is starting to reveal that the Mac is a pretty sweet piece of hardware. Nay say it and it's CNET that looses all credibility.

    I'm sorry, but CNET had credibility?

    Oh, and its loses, not looses.

    Design

    Let's hear it for Apple's industrial design team. You know the other hardware companies would give their left nut to have Jonathan Ives and his team working for them.

    Open up a MacPro case and look at it. Go home and open up your computer. Compare and contrast.
