I am saving for a new computer and I have my eye on a desktop, an iMac. I don’t really move about enough to warrant upgrading to a fancy new wide screen laptop, and my mini-me is only two and a bit years old. But, what I really desire is a larger screen because 12″ doesn’t cut it and I am sure my grades will increase along side monitor size. I am fed up with being restricted to only looking at one application at a time, and long for the day when I can have my browser AND a word document open side by side. My notes will be that much better than before, and I wont use the extra inches to have my browser and iTunes open next to one another. Given that my PowerBook is holding strong I should really just buy a monitor. But where’s the fun in that and Alex is planning on upgrading later this year and I wont be left behind!!!
So all that I am left with is having to choose between the 17, 20 or 24 inch models. I went down to the Apple store in SoHo and tested out the different screens: 17″ is still too small, 20″ should be just right and 24″ scared me. I felt like a digital Goldilocks flitting between Macs.
