Apple iMac MC309B/A
Advantages: built in webcam ideal for skype lovers such as myself!
Disadvantages: screen glare
As a lover of apple products, having already owned a macbook and my iphone (temperamental but I still love it all the same) I decided for the new year to invest in a desktop computer for my house. I have not had one before, and I thought it would be a good option as I am often glued to my macbook and my partner likes to do his work sometimes or browse the internet, so we went halves on this iMac. A much cheaper version as the screen is smaller than others on the market we have to say we absolutely LOVE IT!
It has a great streamline design, lightweight in comparison to other desktop screens I have been in contact with, it has a clear screen, which we let our daughter watch peppa pig on and it was immensely easy to set up. No messing around with loads of wires, and attempts at connecting it to wifi it did everything almost immediately after putting it on the computer desk from the box. It's fast, I've been able to transfer all my music, videos etc via wifi using homeshare from my itunes on my mac to this iMac which helps make life easier. The built in webcam is perfect for taking pictures, and as an avid skype user its perfect for my conversations to friends and family abroad (or sometimes not even abroad!)
only downside I would say is that there is sometimes a glare off the screen so we have positioned ours in a corner of the room where it is unlikely to be affected. As we have only had it a short period of time I am unable to comment on the longevity of the iMac but I am assured by friends who have had theirs for 3 years + so this model I would assume is just as reliable!
Summary: Recommend to EVERYONE looking for a sleek home desktop
