    First off I want to thank TMRaven and HellHammer for their help.

    Welp it came in yesterday around noon. Took ten days to get here with the express shipping :mad: but I'm not complaining to much. Never order from Apple the friday before the Fourth of July! :rolleyes:

    I ordered it with an Elgato eyetv one and extra optical cable. My girlfriend bought me the HDPVR for my birthday last month.

    Getting everything outta the box.

    Shiny Screen! :) I shaved my head a week ago... :rolleyes:

    Listening to Em, and playing around with iMovie

    And the current state it's in now! :p

    I'm glad to say that I woke up today to no new updates!!! Cheers to that. Anybody considering buying should definitely take the plunge! :p

    There is absolutely no yellow tint issue. Or any dead pixels that I can recognize.

    The 27" is huge! Granted I wouldn't settle for the 21.5", but this thing is almost as big as my Vizio 32" HDTV!

    The speakers on it are amazing compared to that of a 2007 Macbook. Eminem's newest CD is sex to my ears.

    EyeTv3 and the Hauppauge HDPVR work wonders together! I already got tests of my gaming up. :rolleyes:

    I plan on installing more RAM later down the road.

    Overall it's a great machine. I couldn't be happier with my purchase!

    Expect a ton of questions from me in the near future! ;)

    But seriously.. get some proper desktop speakers! Then Eminem will be sex to your ears.

    Haha all in good time. A couple months and it'll be fully loaded, nice speakers, a couple external drives, some nice software, and of course a few more sticks of RAM where it counts. ;)

    10 days for expedited shipping?! Where do you live?

    Spokane Washington. I ordered the 2-3 days shipping. However I bought some software to be preinstalled so instead of getting shipped out in 24 hours it took 1-3 business days. And then the 2-3 days of actual shipping on top of that. I ordered late Friday before the holiday so I figured that was the hold up.

    Congrats and enjoy!

    I'm into my seventh month with my i5 and have been very happy with it. It takes everything I throw at it in stride and has not given me any problems. I see myself keeping this at least until my Applecare warranty expires. I may treat it to more memory in a few months. :)

    Congratulations on your new iMac :)

    I've been lurking these forums for a while now, but finally registered and should say Hi ;)

    Anyway, i've been thinking about getting an iMac for over a month now since i've gotten really tired of the PC. When my Pc crashed again for the 2323123 time, I swore to myself "Never PC, ever again".

    Reading your post and seeing your images of you unpacking it.. Makes me wanna get an iMac now :(

    But.. I'll see if I can wait for the new model. If that ever comes!

    (Sorry about my english, not the best)

    Good For YOU !!!

    You have the machine I've been craving....however I don't have the physical space for a 27" so a 21.5 is in my future. Waiting for the "refresh" hopefully with i5 available in 21.5. Anyway, unpacking a new Mac is a joy. Been 8 long years for me. I've got the old half-vollyball iMac, BUT it's still a great computer, NEVER crashed once, just cant do HD video and video streams poorly. Hey it's over EIGHT frickin years old!!!
    May yours last as long or longer. peace
