Hey Guys!

I got my iMac this past Wed and I absolutely LOVE it! :D The screen is to die for!

What do you guys think of my desk set? (Just got it for my birthday...)

(Please excuse the ethernet cable coming down the wall... That will be fixed tommorow)

I have had mine since friday and seeing your pics brings back how happy I felt after a long wait for delivery. I went for the wireless keyboard and mighty mouse option so my desk has never looked tidier. I can't wait to edit some film on this thing! Happy Birthday by the way:D

Even though I've seen all these pics before, I never cease to be happy looking at 24'' iMacs and thinking about mine arriving on my doorstep (well, dormitory commons desk) in two weeks.

Verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry nice! I'm really torn about either a MBP or a iMac 24" and keeping my powerbook. Its honestly a tough call... although I'm kinda decided to go for the MBP... these threads and pics make me pause.

Ack! To many decisions! :) How wonderful! Thanks for sharing, take more pics! :cool:

I was under the same dilemma, and got tired of waiting for the updates. So i got the 2' iMac and i'm just getting used to OS X. Once the updates do happen, i may sell this and get an MBP... haha

Congratulations with the iMac,

Will go to a store to order a custom build one myself,

I already have it installed and I am running Windows XP Home.

I hardly ever use it... (LOL, that reminds me I still need to activate it...)

I just switched to a Mac and now I wonder why I didn't do it a LONG time ago.

OS X is far better than XP and for that mater Vista IMO.

I am a die hard Mac fan now, and my entire family wants to swap their PC's out for Macs after seeing mine :D

WOW congrats man the new 24' iMac just looks smashing!
Wish I could have gotten that one. But I bought my ma a 17' iMac refurb which is not bad either.

But it looks definitely cool, will you change my Macbook+17' iMac for yours ;)

Have fun, ENJOY
