    I bought an iPhone 4 mo. ago and love it (have had blackberry, blackjack, Moto Q and nothing else is in the same league). Now, I am strongly considering ditching my dell XPS and buying the higher end 20" iMac and 500 MB time capsule for the family (seems like the thing to do since all I desire for home use is photo, video and web surfing). Have one question I would like answered. Will the iMac output to my 61" DLP HDTV for viewing movies, photos or just web surfing? All answers welcomed.

    The iMac has a video out, so depending on what connections your TV has, you should be able to hook them up.

    It will - all you need is the Apple mini-DVI to DVI adapter, and a DVI to HDMI cable (if your TV has onboard HDMI). If your TV doesn't have HDMI, then see if it has a VGA (also called RGB) input. If this is the case, then you need a mini-DVI to VGA adapter and a standard VGA cable.
