    I have a 24" iMac I just purchased an iLugger and it looks great. The only thing I am concerned about is that the computer is designed to sit upside down. Has anyone else used this? It seems like the computer is not meant to sit on its top. I know there is padding on the top but is it enough?

    I don't think there is anything in the computer that would suffer from being inverted. Think of laptops. The iMac is a mobile chipset and the optical drive has already been taken out of the traditionally horizontal orientation and mounted at a vertical angle. Obviously the iLugger turns it upside down because of the iMacs foot which probably shouldn't be taking the weight and pressure in a bag with movement, jarring and being set down repeatedly. The foot is designed to have the computer sitting on top of it on a stable desk and at the most titled and turned. If the padding is adequate, you should be fine. Good luck carrying that beast around.

    my main concern was the weight of the computer resting on the top of it. While the imac is in the bag and the bag is sitting on the ground

    Your machine will be fine. If the iMacs are made out of the same material that the snow iBook G3's were made out of, they could theoretically be run over by a car and still function properly. Your iMac will be safe upside down. After all, the weight of the machine is being supported by only that small strip on the back side, where as being rested on the top of the machine, you will have more surface area, resulting in a more even dispersion of weight.
