I just went to pick up my 24" iMac with Wireless mighty mouse & keyboard, first one sold in Orlando, FL.

The screen is huge compared to my MBP 15"! I will get 2GB of RAM tomorrow.

When you have a spare moment, would you mind measuring from the metal base to the top of the screen. I have a limited space to fit a computer, and would love to be able to shoehorn in a 24" iMac.

It has probably topple over and crushed him. As we sit here waiting, everything is going dim and his life is flashing before his eyes.

Sorry guys, I just came back from a weekend trip and as soon as I knew it was available at my local Apple store went to get it....

Screen is awsome I have to say!

Dear Lord! That is comically huge in comparison to your hand and iPod.

I also like how the Superdrive slot is not at the top of the side, but in the middle because otherwise people could not reach it when sitting down.

It's exactly 20.5" tall from the base.
