    Most of you know that I love this forum to bits.

    I used to make a steady $700 per week but now I think I have managed to stabilise at $1000 per week.

    (I know there are people who make that much in a day but for me, this much money in a week is fucking great)

    It took me a good few months to get here and I was saving up for a nice car.

    However, quite recently I heard quite a lot of good shit about Apple and their products and me being the owner of an (iPhone, iPad, iPod)- I simply was missing the iMac from my collection.

    So what did I go? Went ahead and bought one. 27" iMac. Cost me about £1600.

    And that £1600 was none of my own money - it was 100% money generated through the help and methods of Blackhatworld!

    So once again, thanks Blackhatworld! My next thread will be of the car I hopefully aim to buy. (Be in for a surprise)

    PS- To any haters out there that say this iMac isn't mine or I just photshopped it or whatever bullshit - Id be prepared to hold a note in front of it if you need. I just didn't have the time right now so just took a quick picture.

    Keep working hard - no matter how impossible it seems - it will be worth it at the end.

    Ones my brothers, lol. But I might need to buy some more soon.

    Been on the iMac since this morning. Just getting used to everything. The only thing that sucks is that I can't run most SEO tools without downloading certain software.

    Yeah that does suck. On the other hands, installing a virtual machine takes little time.

    I'd rather buy a monster PC with a monster screen, much more worth the money.
    that's because i like to right click, play games once in awhile(like BF3 on ULTRA with a monster pc) then maybe uhm run some SEO tools once every night, you name it

    If your running them direct use Virtual Box its free and really good.

    Perfect setup, two 24inch macs next to each other wired to a raid one with MAC one with XP.

    One day...

    To use Windows Programs just install VMware fusion and install windows xp thru it works like a charm on the 27" iMac.

    Keep the money rolling!

    I have the same exact setup, bought myself a top of the line 27'' iMac, maxed out the ram, and absolutely love it.

    I use a lot of VPS's if I need to run any SEO software, allows me to keep my resources free'd up, as well as my bandwidth.

    Looks like a lot of you have iMacs, haha.

    Keep it up guys! And for those who want one - you can - just keep trying, never give up and believe in yourself. I know this sounds kinda lame but trust me, there is no greater feeling than when you have made your first $1000, if not $100 from IM.

    Wide monitor -- bad for eyes. Keep your pup at a safe / far distance from the new iMac if it habitually watches lot of doggy-style pr0n. :D
