    I need to replace my powebook 15" g4 and have limited space for the replacement.

    I'm thinking about getting a MacBook Air 13", but started to think that perhaps a 21" iMac might work. I'm concerned about the depth of the cabinet I'd be putting it on. The depth of the cabinet is a little over 15". Is thia enough to setup the imac and the wireless keyboard? It's not a desk, so we'd be sitting a little back from it, but still need to sit fairly close to it.

    Also, is there a way to connect it to my tv without having to run a video and audio cable to it?

    Thanks in advance...

    But basing a purchase on the space you have to put it in is a little crazy. The Air is great and I love mine, but the pro has more storage...My Advice?

    Build a new shelf or get a new desk!

    How is buying an item that specifically fits into your home crazy?

    In your world, we should all get pro towers and 30" displays and just remodel to be able to accomodate them?

    There are many, many people with limited space and you'd better believe this limits purchasing ability by narrowing down what would actually fit in the space.

    While I don't agree that buying something to fit a limited amount of space is crazy obviously it limits your choices. Because the back of an iMac is where heat exhausts and the back panel acts as a heat sink it should have adequate ventilation, I'd say 6" more than enough ventilation.
