While I am waiting to get my iMac, I have been looking around for a good set of speakers. I don't want anything more than a 2.1 system. Ideally I want something that doesn't take up too much room and that is sleek looking. I will already have two small Ikea desk lamps on the sides of the iMac. I might try and see if I can get away with the built in speakers, but most likely will want some external ones for watching movies.
