New iMac 20" Review

Reviews

 

imacline_small The new line of iMac’s are now out for 2009 and below I put together a video to review the new 20″ imac from apple, which goes for $1,199. I also show you in the video how to upgrade the ram on this computer which can be upgraded up to 8GB.

As always below are all the links pertaining to the video and technical details on this computer. One thing I wanted to mention is that if you order the imac from the apple website you can customize the features and add for example a 1TB drive, more ram up to 8GB.

    I am a professional musician so I understand & appreciate the value of good musical revue… however… I'm a little bit sad that the opportunity for a well written, produced, acted, directed show that takes thousands of man hours, might lose visibility because of a popularity contest. It's these kind of situations that continue the existence of "reality" shows and perpetuate what's easy, cheap, and unoriginal versus whats creative, innovative, costly and difficult. Maybe it would have been better to choose to vote between similar formats? Let's help give PoPS the exposure it deserves.

    Nah, Meritocracy is what ultimately serves us best. Trading one set of preferences for another just leads to another disenfranchised, pissed off group. And there are a lot of yuppies with just 1 kid.
