Welcome to the forum. I agree about Apple. No matter how much time I spend on a friend's iMac, I just can't like it if I tried. It doesn't feel like a personal computer I could own and customize. It feels like I'm on some public machine. Simplified but also restricted. And it feels almost insultingly dumbed down. I once had an interest in building my own desktop computer with the whole ATX casing, Windows, gaming video card and all. I don't know of any way to do that with Apple. Apple does not even want people opening up their Apple products, at least with iMac notebooks. They'd rather people take them to the Apple store and pay a load of money to have it done for us. It's like they're saying, "don't worry about technical knowledge, let us do it and you pay us for it, you just take the device and enjoy the pretty things on the screen and push buttons and stuff."
Anyways, enough of my ranting about Apple. I'm definitely enjoying the Nexus 7 and Android.
