The Kanex box looks like it may well work, even tho a bit pricey at 80 odd quid

Thinking of getting an iMac. Anyone got a view on which model to go for? The 5k retina looked lovely in the shop but it's a lot of moneys for a puter.

I would say, they're all good. Just be driven by your budget.

Got one yet??

Mine is from 2009 and has not missed a beat. A bit slow now with Yosemite but a few quid on RAM will fix that.
So that is 5 years and not a penny spent on extra software or anti virus since purchase.

Not yet. Ended up needing new glasses and a new tooth instead. I will be getting one at some point, although still not sure about the 5k. Seems a bit like overkill.

My thoughts are go for a Mac Mini rather than an iMac, and acquire whatever resolution screen you want.

I've had both before, and when my iMac screen went (admittedly after six years) it was ridiculously expensive to have it fixed because Apple set it up so only extremely specific replacement units can be acquired to get it fixed. And they cost a fortune. A tad cheeky I thought.

I haven't looked at what they did with the latest refresh of the mini though.

I wouldn't go for the mini myself. If you don't want an iMac, I'd get a Macbook (Air or Pro) when the new ones come out which you can hook up to a monitor if you want. That way you get portability and a Desktop.

Tad cheeky is not a word I use for Apple at the moment. I had my headphone socket go ffft (card not physical socket) 5 year old Mac "Sorry thats Vintage now, so we can't fix it but a new one"

If it is not going to move an iMac is a fantastic desktop computer. I've been delighted with mine. My laptop died two years ago and I bought a mid-2012 Macbook Air. Having an SSD really is fantastic and book times are a breath of fresh air - excuse the pun. Basically if it is going to move get a Macbook but if it is staying in the same place you may as well get an iMac. The only reason I'd go for a Mac Mini would be if you were using it as some kind of home server or if you were determined to have it in the sitting room.

Probably Geneio or something. Relatively harmless but annoying. Download ClamXav (it's free) and it'll clean it up, or search the Apple Discussions for detailed instructions on removal.

People neglect malware on OSX at their peril now. Gone are the days of "I don't need an anti-virus programme, I have a Mac!".

Hang on a minute; a tooth! I know this is a Mac thread but it seems we all missed the story there. Hope you're OK.

I'm fine ta! Don't worry, I didn't get punched in the mouth by Selhurst Celtic much as I have that coming. A very boring story indeed. Routine crown at the back after a shite filling from an NHS dentist many years ago.
