Hey, Mac

The Apple store at Broadway and West 67th Street, Manhattan

I've been thinking about getting a bigger computer monitor. It would be great for watching television shows and working on photographs and it would just be nicer to work with a bigger screen. Much easier on the eyes. One of my colleagues suggested getting a Mac and the "computer" is built into the monitor. The screens are two sizes, 21" and 27". Doesn't that sound luxurious? He uses his Mac mostly for music and graphics and still uses a p.c. for documents and all writing projects. I don't want -- or have space for -- a large screen Mac and a p.c. So I am asking advice from the citizens of Buttercupland. Does anyone use a Mac for all their computing needs? Does anyone do a lot or writing with a Mac? All advice on this topic is greatly appreciated. 
I was going to go in and just look today, but there was a line waiting for assistance with the new version of the  iphone. I decided this wasn't the best day for a leisurely visit at the Apple store. 

There's still ninety minutes to enter the paper culture giveaway. The winner will be announced in a post tomorrow. 

Sweet Weekend Wishes!

My daughter has the 27" imac and it's incredible (in price too). Huge! She does her digital artwork and animation on it. She's a Mac girl all the way. As for the computer built into the monitor, I just got an HP Omni all-in-one that has the same concept. It has a nice big 20" screen and it came with all kinds of upgrades. With shipping, it was only $455.00. I love it. No tower. Here is the link to it at the HP store if you're interested:

I have heard raves - about all kinds of computer set-ups . . . so, I'm not help there - BUT, I do know what you seek is seeking you . . . What i mean is - now you have asked (the Universe) the question - and given space (even if it was due to a crowd, you have taken a little time for Guidance) - When you Do have the opportunity to check it out and choose . . you'll find yourself "led" to the perfect choice (and probably price point) for you.

I'm sending you Lots of Love,

I am not familiar with Macs either. I use a Dell laptop. So I am no help here. Good luck on your search for just the right one for you!

A MAC will learn you.... very intuitive....
Once you get one - you won't ever look back!
Light years ahead... better in every way!!!
Go for it!

One of our computer guys at work won't use anything but a Mac. His assistant has both and says a Mac is far superior. I am seeing people my age who have gotten Macs after having PCs and they LOVE the Mac. I am still a PC person because I have one that works well.
