After much waiting and in spite of an evil plot by TNT to hold it in china I finally have the new iMac. Installed my 4Gb of Kingston value RAM and we were up and running. I love the new imac it really was worth the wait and well worth the money. 24" screen is HUGE after the 17" imac G4 that I had previously on my desk. I really like the new glossy screen, i do get some glare in the daytime but its not distracting and overall the impression a glossy screen gives to photos, movies etc more than outweighs this. Front row is new to me and works really well on such a big screen and makes you want to start ripping DVDs just to see them on the screen. I bought the 750Gb HD for just this purpose, so will download handbrake next and get going. Sound is also much better than I expected from the built in speakers, much better than the old imac (last intel one). I have found a couple of dead pixels not really bad unless using an all white screen. Not sure if this is worth sending back because of them....how long do you get to return it ? Are dead pixels common ? Can't believe how easy it is to setup, and copy all my stuff across. My wife was out when I unboxed it and when she returned 40 mins later took one look and said "great screen...have you really finished...do you remember the days it used to take you to setup a new PC". No news to mac fans but you can forget just how stupid a new PC setup is. Apple have a winner here, only the real gaming PC hard core have anything to complain about and in spite of what has been said publicly this is still not apples main target market with the new imac. This will sell by the bucket load, I expect to see Steve on stage in Jan 08 with some pretty impressive graphs behind him. Not really tested the speed but unlike old imac I can open loads of applications and have several things running at once with no slow down at all. Overall impression is that this is one cool machine and a very worthwhile upgrade. Positive: - New keyboard (best i've used) - Screen huge and glossy works for me - Performance (thus far) - Ease of OSX transfer (nothing to do with new imac) - USB 2.0 (never had this before and its fast vs USB1.1) - Sound is much better than expected - Value for money (£1500 for this setup is pretty good) - Build quality is pro standard Negatives: - Wired mighty mouse feels cheap and cable is very short...should have gone wireless (tried to change order but apple wouldn't let me) - CTO Blueray drive and built in TV tuner would have been nice on this screen was surprised that the former was not an option - Shame that Leopard was not ready ... having new OS at same time would have made upgrade that bit more WOW, paying for it in 2 months when it was supposed to be here by now seems bit low. - Few more ports would be nice another firewire 400 and a couple more USB - Sleep light? No reason to ditch it with all that black surround? - remote that matches the alu look and sticks to side of screen? - dead pixels Unless you are a hard core gamer then the new imac really is the Ferrari of desktops right now.
