    Oh I remember the time when I just ordered my imac aswell those few weeks were the longest weeks ever :) Trust me it will be worth the wait, then the next best thing is when you have friend round who has never seen a mac and you show them it.... then wait for them to realize all of the awesomeness is in that thin screen.

    You will love it.

    Congratulations - talking about having no patience. I decided to drive to our nearest Apple store and pick mine up today. Previously I only ever had an apple iPod (3 years ago).. a few months later I picked up a PowerBook G4, which has lasted a nice long time and is still soldiering on now.

    But I decided that it was time to upgrade the desktop PC - so today I picked up a new 3Ghz iMac... it's screaming fast! I suspect that your 2.8 won't be much slower at all. It shouldn't take you too long to switch over to using OSX as everything is fairly intuitive + the help system is great, and you've always got the MacRumours forum if you have any questions.

    Oh... and the 24" screen is amazingly good.

    Enjoy your new purchase :D

    I DID EXACTLY THE SAME THING!
    i would check the tracking page every minute. it was sooo exciting! its been a little over a month now, and i think that its been one of the best choices ive made in my life. i got a macbook though.

    trust me, even as the days seem slow, when 3AM comes, you'll wish that you had more hours in the day :]

    haha. How long did you have to wait? I was wondering if I should choose one day shipping, 2 day shipping, or the free shipping. I chose 2nd day. I don't know anyone who has an iMac, so when people come they will probably want to use the iMac! lol


    I hope nothing fails so soon. :(

    I would have loved to go to the apple store and get the iMac right away. I don't think they sell refurbished iMacs. Do they? :O I was so undecided. I really wanted to get the 3.06GHz iMac for the video card and hard drive. I wonder how long it will take me to get used to OSX. :D Thanks! I can't wait to finally use the iMac.


    cool. :D when did you get your first mac?

    hahahah. I love tracking my packages even when it's something so small. The day the iMac arrives I don't think I'll go to school. LOL

    Got my first Mac about 3 years ago. It's an iBook G4. Shortly after buying the iBook, I purchased a PowerMac Dual Core 2Ghz G5. Soon after, I got 2 iMac G3 computers for my kids for $25 each!!

    Since then I have upgraded to a MacBook with the Core 2 Duo CPU. Don't want to sound like I'm bragging but I have also bought 3, 24" iMacs (One for the home office and 2 for the lab).

    So that's a total of 8 Macs in 3 years :D (Not to mention the iPods and iPhones etc.) I guess I'm obsessed with Apple :D

    I was a PC user for many years but the great thing about my Apple products is that they JUST WORK. I think your gonna love it. It's not gonna change your life or anything but, as far as computers go, it's pretty cool.

    Cheers.

    That's a lot of macs. cool. :D

    My first apple product was an iPod. It was the fourth generation iPod. The click wheel stopped working and I contacted apple. I sent it in and got a refurbished iPod. I dropped that one and it got a dent and stopped working. They sent me another refurbished iPod and I sold it to get the video iPod.

    I've been using a PC since I was little. I'm barely 21 though. lol. I remember we did have one apple computer but I know nothing about it! This is the one. You can see it in the back.

    There is no better computer in the world than the 24" iMac. It is quiet, solidly built, beautiful to look at and blazing fast. On a price/function scale it's miles ahead of anything else. You will not regret your purchase. Enjoy.
