PCMag gave it 4 1/2 stars and an editor's choice award, but look at what the put for the cons of the iMac.

No TV tuner. Difficult to move DVD content or TV programming from iMac to iPod. Third-party mount required for arm mounting. 3D graphics are not upgradeable.

What a load of ****, especially the thing about moving content to an iPod and the arm mounting. The only con out of those 4 would be the graphics card not being upgradeable. The rest of them are a reach.

It is surprising that it doesn't have a t.v. tuner as part of the package but with digital t.v. coming, what would they choose? It's still an expensive proposition to use HDTV.

It would be nice if the graphics were upgradable, but Apple would have to charge more and a PCI-Express slot that was flat (perpendicular to the motherboard) would be interesting to engineer.
