My colleague and I was trying to convince Kelvin that he should get an iMac (or MBP/MBA).
Instead, I am convinced that I needed an iMac myself. LOL.
Only dilemma was 21” v.s. 27”. Found out about TDM (Target Display Mode) and that’s the deal-breaker man - 27” it is then!
Currently, I am using 5” phablet, 7” mini tablet and 15” mid-size laptop.
There is too much overlap and I found myself underutilising my Samsung Note (had been using it purely for whatsapp and calling only, since I got my iPad Mini). I love the weight and size of iPad Mini hence phablet has to go.
By acquiring an iMac soon, I can shift my heavier tasks (creation part) onto it. With that, I could lower the computing power requirement of my on-the-go laptop for use in office & during business commute/meet.
Eventually, I’ll be using 3.5” phone for 24/7, 7” mini tablet for on-the-go digital consumption (in bedroom, restaurants, while waiting, etc), 13” macbook air for office work (or on-the-go business meet, etc) and 27” desktop for productive digital creation in living room.
My acquisition plan is as following:
- 2011 - MBP (My first Apple)
- 2012 - Samsung Note (one)
- 2013 - iPad Mini (Lucky draw, hehe)
- = = = = today = = = =
- 2013 - iMac 27” (low spec)
- 2014/15 - iPhone
- 2014/15 - MBA (Replacement of MBP)
- 2017 - iMac 27” (Replacement of desktop + setup of dual display!)
That’s a 2-3 years cycle for replacement of phone, 3-4 years for laptop and 4 years for desktop. Seems good, no?
