    My dad & mom have been getting frustrated with their PC as they try to work with images. I told them about the new iMacs and showed them the apple website, giving them an idea of all the software it has.

    Then literally two days after we started talking about getting one for the house to replace their PC, it crashes and now when it tries to run Scandisk it freezes and has a BSOD: "Error: Cannot Write to C:"


    That's kinda like a sign, eh? We're going to go look at the iMacs on sunday.

    If we do get it, it'll be the collective Xmas present for the whole house. Either way, I'm getting one for myself when I move out.

    Nice... i did a similar thing with one of my friends mom's.

    She could get burning a CD to work properly... i said she should have a mac it's as simple at drag and drop.

    next week she comes to me and the computer took a complete dump. I recommended the new iMac and she goes home. Next day she's got a huge grin on her face, i ask what she decided to do. She placed her order for an iMac... Sometime next week i get to go and give her the run down on how it works. WOO HOO GO ME!
