I don't care what you people say... My wife got an iMac a few years ago, and I have never liked it. It freezes up more than my computer, and that's saying a lot. And my wife gets frustrated all the time by it, too. It's true, you don't have to crash the iMac as much as my Vista piece of garbage, but it freezes up a lot. Mercy upon you, if you actually are trying to do something that involves the internet and, say, Excel. Bring a good book because you're going to do a lot of waiting around.
