I am happy to announce that yesterday I ordered two new 20" iMacs for my law office. When our firm made the switch from PCs to Macs over three years ago, I bought our two legal assistants Mac Minis, which have served admirably since that time. I made these purchases through Apple’s "Business Unit," which made the shopping experience quick and easy and also yielded a slight discount on certain items.
However, even though the Minis are still going strong, I decided that it was time for an update, and it was quite an easy decision to get the iMacs. Not only are the iMacs beautiful, but they are also quite a good buy when considering the many features that they offer. They are scheduled to arrive on Friday, though I would not be surprised for them to show up early, as typically happens with my purchases from Apple.
I also have plans for the used Minis. I intend to convert one into a media server, as discussed in a recent guest post. The other one will probably be used as a file/data repository in the office, which will hopefully enable us to get rid of our Windows server. If not, I am sure that I can find another creative use for it, as it is still quite spry after all these years.
Oh, this was not my only hardware purchase made this week… Stay tuned.
