    have pretty much just released a new everything. To my mind are still great but are going a bit nuts in terms of amount of products, frequency of updates and quality control problems.

    New imac looks great but why no optical drive? New ipad looks great but the 'new ipad' is now defunct - nowhere to be seen. Ipad mini is just a small ipad - not sure I see the point without the ability to make calls.
    If they made an ipad mini with built in phone I'd have one in a flash though!

    The *only* thing I use the optical drive for at home is to rip CDs. At the studio, we have some older archives on DVD, but have an external superdrive to take care of the few times we actually need to access them.

    You know what? I was always against no CD/DVD burner but I realized that I always avoid using them because CD/DVDs on laptops are so unreliable, I can never burn shit or I always have the incorrect kind of DVD, I rather get a big drive once every 2 years and store my stuff there.

    Also, I remember being genuinely upset when the first imacs came without floppy drives hahaha

    I do like Apple products. Generally very well made - far more so than the competition, and generally work very smoothly - again, far more than the comp. However, I think the good service / high end product is being diluted because they have become so popular.

    I use the optical drive. I use DVD for long term image storage, I thought external drives were no good for long term?

    Apple is great, why the hatin? I really enjoy using their products, they work great together. I wish they weren't so expensive. I don't understand why people care so much about hating or loving apple.

    I like the new imac. The higher spec one has self- upgadeable RAM too

    • my 2007 24inch iMac has that as well and I'm sure the ones that followedernexbcn1/4
      the new iMac 21.5 is the only iMac without self-upgradable RAMESKEMA2/4
      Pretty bad if they make upgradability a 'feature' you have to pay for.ETM3/4

    Will they continue to sell the "old" iMacs or have they shredded them all to capitalize on the newer models and higher prices?

    • yup. and all older imacs that have been sold and are in use don't even boot now... it's crazy.prophetone
