    I'm looking at buying the new 24" iMac and I was wondering if there are any comments/thoughts out there on this Mac. I like that it has an nVidia card.

    If you get one, get the GeForce 7600GT. It's worth every penny and will probably make a significant difference (possibly greater than the upgrade cost) if you ever decide to sell it.

    That's really bad, however I gotta say my iMac 24" is so silent that when the display is on sleep I seriously cannot tell if it's turned on or not, if it weren't for the little flashing light of course.

    I assume you had something wrong with your iMac to make it loud, but on normal conditions it's great even if you keep it on your bedroom and have it running 24/7.

    Mine too is super quiet. My 20" Core Duo made weird noises every 15 minute or so (like a small "ping") even when at sleep. No such problem with this baby. I love the cize of the screen. I use it to watch DVD´s and TV as well.

    Love mine! Only problem is, and this seems to affect many people's 24" iMacs, is that if you are in a truly quiet room (ie, you are trying to get work done) you can hear a hum that gets louder whenever the screen isn't at maximum brightness.

    I'm told that it's just an inverter, and Apple will replace it for you, but I haven't had a time where i thought i could be without my computer long enough.

    it's great otherwise!

    9.9 on a scale of 10.

    One small annoyance is the slow burning I've been experiencing.

    Absolutely love mine- it's very quiet, fast as hell, amazing screen, etc.etc.. Has a few dead pixels but i got over them a couple weeks after I got her- I don't even notice them anymore.

    Hi,

    From a long time PC user I think it's great . . . All I have to do now is learn more about it :)

    I love it. The screen can't be bright enough for me. I upgraded from a B & W G3 and OS 9, so I'm in heaven. :)

    Photoshop CS2 takes forever to load but then I'm not freezing up every 20 minutes while working like I was before.

    I am noticing some internet connection time-outs in Safari but it may be my cable modem router box. It's silent except for an occasional whine from a CD.

    Other than the usual frustrations of learning the new OS it's been amazing. I hate to leave the house now!
