I has a dual boot system with MacOSX 10.8.2 and Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium x64. I would like to install Ubuntu alongside the two existing operating systems for cross platform development purposes.
The iMac is a desktop computer built by one of the World’s great Computer giants, Apple Inc.
Probably many of you didn’t know that ‘i’ in the iMac stands for ‘Internet’.
On July 27,2010 Apple unveiled its new line of iMacs which embodied the new range of Intel Core processors.
Although Apple’s MacBook Pros have already bridged the gap to Intel’s Core i line of 2011 processors, questions have been asked over when the same will happen for the Macbook Air, Mac Mini and the iMac line of all-in-one desktops.
Apple has ensured that one of its iMac models is now available at the magic sub-$1000 price point in the US education market, continuing Apple’s appeal to the education sector albeit at the cost of less powerful specs.
Apple’s new redesigned iMac marks a significant departure from a physical design that the company has basically used for its all-in-one desktop since 2007.

I am considering purchasing an iMac 27-inch for my web development business; of course, linux-compatibility is a major issue for me. I know that Linux has been run successfully on various models of the iMac, including the 27 inch version, but of late it seems that the Linux graphic driver universe is going through a tough time.
