    I'm about to buy my first iMac. I understand how technology changes quite frequently but.....

    What are the chances of Apple releasing a new iMac with a larger screen (22"+) in the near future? I"d *hate* to buy an iMac with a 20" monitor and find out a day or two later that Apple is releasing a larger one.

    One never knows - ask people who bought 17" iMacs a few days before the 20" ones were announced - but I don't see it happening soon, as it would push the imac into prosumer pricing levels.

    Of course, I didn't see the 20" one coming a few years ago, so don't listen to me....

    The 20" really is a very good size regardless. If you do buy it, just enjoy it. They're awesome.

    Heck I think 17 inch is awesome. also great because it is so light. I can tke it anywhere and present iMovies. I really classify it as Portable Desktop, 15#s. Lol. So light.

    Yeah, I'm hurting from that one now. I love my G4, but if I waited for a couple of months I could have had 3X the HD space, a 20" screen, but most importantly, and the main reason this hurts, USB 2.0

    People have been discussing if Apple would release a huge iMac for the 30th anniversary...which is a joke...maybe...

    I don't think they will bump up screen sizes this year, sometime next year when new Cinema Displays come out (which makes sense). 20 inch is enough for me, though I only have a 17 incher.

    I doubt that Apple will release a larger iMac...but no one can be sure. If you need more screen size, you could always buy an external ACD or other LCD. :)
