    Yeah, the glare looks horrible. How are you dealing with it?

    And how about getting a decent desk and some carpeting? Then a nice ergonomic chair.

    I was afraid of the glare, too, but once there is any content on the screen, the glare disappears. When my iMac is off, it looks like a mirror. When it's on, it's just a normal looking monitor. Fear not the glare!

    It looks great!

    I have to agree that having just one cord is one of the best things about the iMac. I had to set up an old PC for my mom and got irritated by the sheer amount of cord connecting I had to do.

    What if he likes the desk, and he is very allergic, so carpeting is a no go? Oh, and he likes to stand while using the computer.:rolleyes:

    Sheesshh

    And to the OP: Love the iMac, really stylish.

    Wow! You can really tell the difference between the two screens!

    Your new iMac is very very colourful compared to your G4!
    Out of curiosity, is the new one a 24" or 20"?

    The new one is a 24". The old one is the 17" self-calibrating AGP powered Studio Monitor. I believe its a Mitsubitshi Diamond CRT, Circa 2001. The relative size in the photos is exagerated by near/far perspective as it was taken with a 10mm lens on a 20D (equiv to 16mm FF).

    Here's comparison between the gamut of the CRT (color) and the iMac created with ColorSync:

    [​IMG]

    The LCD gamut is larger in reds but slightly smaller than the CRT in the greens. Here's a comparison of the iMac 24 gamut (white) with the gamut of an 8C HP7960 inkjet on HP Premium Plus paper (color):[​IMG]

    Most of the two gamuts overlap but the parts hanging out mean the printer can reproduce a wider gamut in greens, reds, and yellows than the screen can display.

    Interesting soon as we get a new shiny iMac the old one becomes my crappy PC. The same thing will be happening to me as soon as leopard comes out. I would post a before picture but most of you are too young to view something so horrible. :eek:

    Here's a before and after of my old windows pc setup. I finally bit the bullet, cleared my head of WinXP and I went out and got an iMac. I'm a happier man now... :D

    Why would anyone buy a computer from a company that's going out of business? :p
