Windows 7 was the last OS, it was okay I guess.

 

I had XP before that for ages, put W7 on, but within about 4 months I got my first iMac and after that I didn't really touch the PC again.

 

I finally stripped and took it apart last week.

 

This was the CPU before I made it into a keyring lol

It's funny how people going from low-spec Windows machines go to multi-thousand dollar Macs and complain about poor perofrmance of their Windows PC :).

It is once in a 3 years purchase so I like to max it out because i need to last.  :)

 

I know the CPU is the top of the line but i am unsure of the GFX since with Apple it is rather limited with choice, i just upgraded it to what they had on offer...whatever it may be so there wasn't really any research need to be done really since it is not like I could pick and choose.

 

Don't worry, GTX 680MX is top-of-the-line for laptop / all-in-one gear.  Actually it uses the same chip as the desktop GTX 680, the top-of-the-line single GPU Nvidia graphics card, just at maybe 70% of the clock speed.  As long as thermals are okay... then again, at idle, it's not like they're spewing massive amounts of heat all over the place.

 

Now, if you held onto the Windows machine about half a year more, the CPU model would be 10 years old.  cool.gif

 

I'll second those tablets being cool, but does the form factor really work?  I'd guess the larger versions are better to work with, but then again, I've never used one and would never have any use for such a thing.

Glossy. Eww. I'd pick a top end Dell Ultrasharp or at the real top end an Eizo Coloredge or NEC Reference.

I believe the Apple Cinema screens share the same LG panels as the lower end Dell Ultrasharps and LG's own IPS displays so they are capable screens nontheless.

Well, yes, For $3,000 screen only, it'd better be better.

 

Apple's screen comes with the iMac, and they are not asking $3,000 for them with no computers inside.

 

FYI, go check out these new iMac screen in person.  It is glossy but minimal reflection which is quite freaky.  I am sitting in front of it, working in Photoshop and Lightroom, watching a movie, surfing the net and I cannot see myself in the reflection.  I see no reflection.  I am waving my hands at the screen as I type this.  I see no thing but this post.

 

The only way I could see something reflect back is held up my phone (screen on) and wave in front of it, yet I can only see a VERY dimmed reflection of it, like someone passed it through a 4 stop Neutral Density filter.  And this is ONLY when the image on screen is black.

 

So, before you go Eww, Go check it out.

There are korean companies that take the rejected IPS panels from Apple from their 27" Cinema Displays (1600p).  The funny thing is, these monitors look just as good, with a couple dead pixels MAYBE.  Sometimes there are no dead pixels at all.  But at that resolution, dead pixels are barely visible let alone bothersome.  The best thing is, these go for around $300 on ebay, and they are all the rage on Overclock.net and other forums.  They're really worth checking out.  I'm considering getting one.

 

They make Apple Cinema Displays and other professional IPS displays not worth it.  They're real.  And a few also can "overclock" to 120hz, making them the only display that can do 1600p at 120hz.

There are many different brands.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-YAMAKASI-CATLEAP-Q270-SEi-27-LED-S-IPS-2560X1440-WQHD-6ms-DVI-D-PC-Monitor-/140853868709?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item20cb8b78a5

 

The catleaps have a certain model that easily does 120hz.  These are SERIOUSLY WORTH CHECKING OUT.  They look just as good, clear, and bright.
