    It is a 20-Inch, all stock, I recently got a MacBook Pro and loved it really and I needed a desktop to replace my aging PowerMac G4, I was thinking mac pro but I decided for iMac C2D... I haven't taken any pictures and I haven't really used the computer but I will start soon. This thread will be updated with impressions and pictures, including comparisons to my MacBook Pro (which is also a 2.16ghz so maybe a clean difference between CD and C2D might be seen) and of course... Windows XP and games! :) So far I'm loving it, very stylish and the "chin" is not as bothersome as on the 17 inch model (which was the reason I was kind of anti-iMac).

    Well I expect good things! My only regret is that its not a 24 incher lol.

    The pics!

    It and some random stuff on my desk (catch the small glimpse of the MBP and the PowerMac :)

    The 20" iMacs are still great machines, just because there are 24"ers available does not degrade the 20" iMacs status as a great computer. :)


    Congrats on your purchase Chone. :)

    agreed. all we've heard about is 24" this and 24" that ever since the core 2 duo imacs were released. The other models are still great computers and very competitive buys. Enjoy it!

    I don't know what the heck you were thinking by mentioning your 20" iMac. As far as I'm concerned, it's not worth mentioning unless it's got twenty-four inches.

    Lets get some info on those games. My next machine will likely be what you have. I just want to wait for Leopard and I don't really need a new computer now. :p

    What are those things on the desktop? Mounted volumes of some kind. When I connect to my PC an icon like that appears. Do you have 10 computers? lol

    By the way, seeing you're on a spending spree, buy a new camera. :)
