Hey all, I know that everyone here (myself included) is a sucker for pics of anything Apple, so here are a few new pics of my brand-spanking new iMac G5 20" - received this morning, no less (ordered Oct. 19th from the Apple Store)! Hopefully its beauty comes across in these pics; it really is gorgeous. The iMac is indeed quiet, only a fan spinning lightly in the back produces sound with the odd disc loading (I've been trying out several DVDs just for the experience). It's very warm at the top of the bezel, gradually getting cooler as you go down. Furthermore, it's impressively thin and the overall aesthetic is very minimal. One might think think that the iSight would ruin the continuity of the piece, but I think it's barely noticeable and I couldn't really picture an overall aesthetic difference if it was there or not. Computer performance is what you'd expect given a CPU with its speed, which is to say it's good. But I think this can be a personal issue, so I'll leave all you iMac buyers to form your own judgement. Photobooth is fun for a few minutes, gimmicky sure, but something to play with. I refused to let it take a pic for my login account after setting things up early in the morning (not a morning person in appearance ). Front Row is mighty cool, and takes a few seconds (about 3) to make the transition from the desktop, but appears to be very functional. DVD playback from Front Row looks good, but one annoyance is that if you pause and return back to the desktop, the DVD player mustn't be in the dock when you decide to resume playing the DVD, otherwise the video does not play. I'll get used to it, but I think Apple will need to patch Front Row a bit before it becomes truly amazing. However, even without the apps, the iMac is a spectacular deal and a nice piece of hardware. Anyway, enough praise...I must get back to my computer! Check out the few pics I took of my baby...some with a newly purchased DVD (guess which one ). So far, extremely happy with the purchase...oh, and did I mention I'm a first-time Mac user?!
