Two months ago my 6-year-old Power Mac G5 died. In computer age, it was a Applesaurus, but, oh, we did so much together. I miss it terribly.
Since then I’ve been researching (almost to another death) my next computer. I’ve decided on this delightful iMac with its awesome 27″ display and an additional solid state drive. I’m then going to use my current 20″ display for side-by-side viewing. It will be so sweet—like on my way to having any of these home offices.
So what’s the problem?
Well, according to the Buyers Guide at MacRumors, I shouldn’t buy right now. Trends show Apple puts out a new iMac every 273 days, on average. It’s been 284 days. And while there’s been lots of speculation on how great the new machine will be, there hasn’t been even the slightest nibble from Apple as to when it will debut.
Oh, what to do, what to do?
Working from a 13″ MacBook tethered to my display is getting rather old.
