Help Choose For My Business Future Vlogs
Last Update: Feb 3, 2023
I was blessed with a good tax return this year in my favor. So, I plan to purchase a new desktop computer. I've been using a very reliable laptop but need a more substantial unit for potentially some Vlogging.
In the past, I have always gone with Dell, HP, and Lenovo. Never have had an Apple computer or an iPhone. Many of you seem pretty set on the dependability and virus protection of the Apple iMacs, however, I have never used one. My dad had one of the original big orange cubes back in the day (before some of you were born), but I never could figure that thing out.
What do you think? I could always go with what I know, there are some nice all-in-one HPs available of course.
"Apple 2021 iMac All-in-one Desktop Computer with M1 chip: 8-core CPU, 7-core GPU, 24-inch Retina Display, 8GB RAM, 256GB"
My goal is to be able to Vlog and have some more options to expand my business. The right tools are always a must for me in creating or repairing anything properly.
Many of you are quite savvy with computers. Thus my asking here with such a huge family for support, that I trust and value your input.
Thank you and happy weekend. Yes, it is now Friday in a few minutes.

I like HP products and services. Shopping is a learning experience when you're looking for digital equipment. Enjoy the ride.
If you can use a PC, then you can use a Mac. They're both fine choices for Vlogging. I use both in my digital recording studio.
The iMac you listed will do a good job. 😎
I am using 10 year old Dell Optiplexes, with 8GB Ram and 500 GB hard drives. Got them all on eBay at the time for $148 plus free shipping. They have been reliable units thus far, David.
I have never used an Apple computer either. Hope you make a good decision.
Thank you Jeff. I'm ready for a change over to Mac in honor of my dad who would insist on my getting one. Thank you your suggestion.
The above spec is great. However, the disk space is small unless, of course, you'd use an external drive. Have you considered a MacBook Pro instead? It is mobile.
You can reach out to Roope, Vitaliy, and many others who vlog here.
Also, an iPhone can do it great too! You can run live.
Whatever you decide, I'm sure you'd make out great.
Thank you Abie maybe purchase an external drive to go with it. I'm still shopping but I am intrigued by Apple products. Thank you

Hi David, I have 2 MacBook Pro laptops it's the best and better than the iMac it is great for blog and video blogging no problems with the video but the software final cur pro is expensive there is better software to use for editing videos. I suggest MacBook Pro the M2 version I have both M1 and M2 I love it. Best durable laptop than a PC so easy to use. You will love it the specs for iMac are ok but the M1 or M2 Macbook Pro tops the iMac specs!
Great thank you Brenda. I have a Workers Comp voucher for $1000 reimbursement on computer and or supplies. With that and another $1000 should provide all I need. I will be shopping :)
Cool. Keep shopping. I hope whatever you find will work best for you and your needs.
