Use with VMWare fusion to get the best of both MAC and Windows,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: iMac 20" Desktop 2.66GHz/2GB/320GB/SD (Electronics)
I am visually impaired and have used Windows via the Windoweyes creen reader for many years. I needed to replace my 5 year old Windows machine and after a lot of research decided on the IMAC. the key motivator is that MAC OSX includes the Voice Over screen reader as an integral part of the OS which means that a blind person can (with some difficulty) set up the IMAC with no need for sighted help. This is not possible on a Windows machine. I then installed VMWare fusion without sighted help and that let me install Windows XP Home without sighted help. Windows started fine and I then installed the Windoweyes screen reader. I can share documents and music between MAC and Windows and as VMWare fusion stores all of Windows and its applications and data as a single file then Windows backup and recovery is easy. This combination gives me the best of MAC and Windows and hopefully I will never need sighted help again!
The IMAC is an elegant and very complete machine. My only dislike is the laptop style MAC keyboard, but my old Windows keyboard works fine on the IMAC.
