    Ok I told you guys I was going to wait on the iMac until I can afford my dream PC an iMac 24" C2E but anyways... I ran across an ad on craigslist.. 17" 2.0 Ghz C2D ,1GB ,Wireless keyboard + Mighty Mouse for $575... I couldn't refuse so I bought it and I am booting it up now as I am typing this on my Dell PC...

    It is also my 1st machine... I still will be getting the 24" in the future :)

    That is definitely an offer you couldn't pass up. Sometimes CL really pulls through. Good work.

    Congrats that's a really good deal. It's gonna scream with Leopard installed on it. If you were booting up the iMac why didn't you just wait until it was booted up to type your excitement on it rather than your Dell?

    I would've said, "Got my new iMac and I'm typing on it as we speak". :D

    I wouldn't have said, "Got my new iMac and I'm typing on my Dell to tell you about it".:eek:

    lol yeah well now I'm on my mac... The older keyboard is much better than the alumniums in the store I think. I thought I would have a problem with the small 17" screen but it's actually not bad at all by any means!

    Congrats. I think a lot of people here will be bummed that they did not see the posting. $575 is a great deal.

    Welcome to the family..or sorts:)

    Here are the photos.. I obviously did not expect to buy a new computer today so I didn't have a setup ready I just bought it as soon as I saw it and it just sits on the floor at the moment lol..

    Does anyone know if I can make a setup like this photo? What type of connectors would I need?

    Depends on the port on your tv.

    Likely DVI or VGA compatible analog RGB.

    congratulations on the purchase...you got a really nice price there...and on top it is the old iMac which I like better than the new ones.
    Hope you will love your mac.
