IMac — is it worth it?

Don't like to write the question in one line, so I'll write deployed, and to read it was interesting and nice reply.


The last time I was drawn to Apple. It started after quite a long vremeni conducted in complianee kernel Gentoo a couple of attempts to collect LFS, etc., etc. Probably wanted "stability" and "just worked".


And it just so happens that we had the opportunity to order a new computers. And I thought — why not? Going to order a iMac with a simple (more bosses will raise a punishing look and will be sent to hell, because the notion of a computer is the monitor, and they really do not understand why it can cost under 100k)


And immediately raised a few questions for avid MacOS users, I hope you give a full answer =)


So, let's begin.


1. For work I need AutoCAD, but since "no money" and "here's another, to buy such an expensive thing," he we all have is a pirate. On the rutreker I found autocad for the Mac. The question is — is it difficult to put on poppy the pirate cracked. Or is there in Windows?


2. As I recall, the version of VirtualBox is and under the poppy, i.e. in the extreme case I can do as I did working in the Ubuntu — dev, it XP, it academic?


3. Is there any for the Mac at all free. Or is it just for the money in the AppStore (Mac opponents claim he is)


And finally — what do you think, is it worth it?

1-the same and sometimes easier.
For example, Photoshop has krakusa, the generation of the key file and edit hosts.
2-Yes, everything will be based only in performance.
From under Windows through player from Vogue and glued pictures.
3-Yes, but it depends. Specific may not be.

AutoCAD worked well not that on the iMac, but even on MBA 2011.
Better not VirtualBox, and VMware Fusion. So much nicer than VirtualBox.
AT lot free, lot of cracked with limited functionality, which is enough for the eyes.
And, Yes, it is.

1. Often you just need to download and move to folder "programs".
2. As already said by the previous speaker, VMware Fusion more still urgent.
3. Free programs do exist, and they are quite a decent amount. Moreover, the torrent has not been canceled yet(another thing is the moral side of the question, but not about that now). If you will not have enough power events can throw an invite at brokenstones(the best tracker on Makovsky software).

Adding my two cents Makovetskii. Fusion is cool, but look at Parallels Desktop. Get a really deep integration of Windows applications into the Mac OS (window windowas the program appears as a native window, the files of Mac are opened in Windows programs, shared documents and other buns). Installing cracked programs on Mac (and indeed the installation, IMHO) — the thing is very simple. On spetsializirovannyh torrent has everything you need. In short, let us, we have cookies!

The house is iMac 27 late 2010, two years happy as an elephant. Regret did not regret even once, as well, and the other appliances apple (while lying, the 3gs had to change under warranty, dead pixel, but everything was solved with good, replacement on 4-well as the 3gs at a store in the presence of fiction).
\r
Unsubscribed above that Parallels better than VMware and performance and integration. If you need autocad, you can pretend to be a student and register for student.autodesk.com. There you can download and obtain the key for a student license, I periodically go download to see if you can work native style on Mac, without the new path. Alas, so far, that rather impossible, very raw, and autocad and maya with other products not worked.

About "just worked".
I bought my fiancee iMac. This miracle of technology he worked for 3 weeks and broke. Moreover, if it was Linux would be a Kernel Panic with at least some sane information, or BSOD, in the case of Windows. In the case of the Mac is just a white screen. Because — just broke.
\r
As it turned out after an evening of trials (and this is the way it was on the eve of the birthday of the bride), it turned out, it was covered with the bluetooth module. Given the fact that the keyboard and mouse wireless system became deaf and blind. Even when connecting wired devices to the system "hung" in the white screen mode for about 15 minutes (probably in a vain attempt to initialize the bluetooth).
\r
Yes, the computer was taken back to Apple Store and he went to the examination (for 45 days). But the myth of the build quality and that "it just works" is really just a myth. Marketing and business, nothing personal. Their money is not worth it.
\r
However, there is another case — I bought a MacBook for travel. Twice I dropped it on a tiled floor — still is. In any case, and lucky ones — question.
