    Can someone with either a 17" iMac G5 or 20" iMac G5 post the dimensions (width x height) Height being from the desk to the top of the iMac..

    Either that or point me to where I can find the dimensions :)

    I have a pretty big desk, but am worried the 20" will dwarf it... might need to get a bigger desk :D

    I actually can't quite believe this thread.
    This kind of info is readily available on the apple website!

    Is that the height down to the base (desk), or just to the bottom of the mac?

    Yeah I found that, but couldn't work out if that was the dimensions of the actual mac, or including the stand?

    Anyone?

    I need to know the height from the desk to the top of the iMac.

    It seems the dimensions on the Apple site are from the bottom of the computer to the top i.e. not including the gap between the bottom of the iMac and the desk.

    I have a 20" G5 IMAC - The height measures just under 19 inches from the surface of the desk to the top of the IMAC.

    Not exactly rocket science is it!?
    Width = 19.4 inches
    Aspect ratio of screen ~=1.6:1
    Therefore Height of screen = 19.4/1.6 = 12.125 inches.
    Add a few inches for the bottom (from pictures) = 15"
    Now, I wonder where the other 4 inches are coming from?
    Bit of common sense and logic... :eek:

    If you've got nothing useful to say why bother replying?

    It may not be rocket science, but it isn't accurate either. At best it's an educated guess, which is not good enough.
