Your suggestion on iMac from refurb is exactly what I was going to say but I have to disagree with talking about an Apple rep. They are paid to push Macs. They will tell you whatever they can to purchase a Mac because a Mac can do everything + more that a PC can't.
Thanks for the insight.
In my case, the rep truly was extremely helpful.....but perhaps that is because I was already sold on getting an iMac before I even called the rep.
I used a variety of PCs for many years. . Then in 2008 I bought my first Apple, an iMac. . I have been so happy with it for so many reasons that I don't think I will ever go back to a PC again. . So, the rep didn't try to convince me of anything, or try to push a Mac on me....because he knew that I was already convinced. . I had a specific iMac in mind that I had already decided to buy, and the rep helped me get it for the absolute best price possible. . He also answered some questions I had regarding some compatibility issues between my old iMac and the new one. . And he also gave me a very detailed explanation of exactly what types of support I would have access to, both over the phone and at my local Apple store. . So, in my case, the rep was absolutely great.
However, if you are still trying to decide between a PC and a Mac, and you call an Apple rep to discuss your needs, I can see how you may be annoyed if they are pushy.
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
