    My friend's just bought the same machine (20") and it's very impressive - especially the display quality. Enjoy your new Mac!

    The 20'' is absolutely fantastic, but the 17'' is not bad either and I would be happy with it too! Remenber, it is widescreen...so much better of any 17'' around anyway...

    Good luck!!! whatever you decide to buy it will be great!

    Nice stuff. Look into getting a Wireless Keyboard and Mouse too if at all possible. I hesitated when I bought my iMac and I regret it because I ended up buying them separately. It's almost impossible to find a good home for a wired keyboard. :(

    Don't get the extra RAM from apple, its hideously overpriced.

    Def. get the 20 inch display. It's great having that much screen real estate. The 17 inch is great too, but the 20 inch has more of the "wow" factor. Whichever one you go with though you'll be happy with. Enjoy your new mac!

    Congrats, and enjoy the OSX experience!
    You won't be disappointed with either the 17" or the 20"

    Congrats on your switch to Mac bobert1985! :)

    As others have said, go with the 20" iMac G5- its well worth the extra $$$.

    But regardless of which model you choose,
    they are both awesome Macs- Enjoy! :)

    Yeah, generally when you "make it happen" at night it doesn't involve computers...

    What would you even do with a 20"? Seriously.

    I have a 19" and I can't even SEE the whole thing at once. It's so huge.

    Well, I'm an American-- with a 19" Japanese unit. Was it a transplant from Godzilla?
