Wow! I want one now!

Wow, I kinda want one after looking at those pictures of the guy unpacking it. It just looks cool on his desk.

Then I remember it's only 1024x768 and I cool off again. If only they gave the option for a 17" LCD at 1280x1024 then I'd finally have the ideal upgrade for my Cube: close to 2x faster, Superdrive built in, and still pretty quiet. Oh well...

I ordered mine this morning!

I place an order with MacConnection after I saw them quoting 7-14 days. They said that 700 or so were due on the 15th and 450 of those were sold so I guess I have 2 weeks of sleepless nights...

p.s. My local Apple store expected about 25 in very soon with 200+ people already on the waiting list.

Next thing we know there'll be a class-action lawsuit against Apple putting phallic suggestions in their packing arrangement. :D

Get your iMac today

Like everyone else I ordered my iMac after the keynote. Waiting for my "3-5 weeks" has been hell. So I went into my local Apple store and asked them if I could upgrade the shipping from ground to two day there, because I want it ASAP. They told me that starting today, Feb 1st, they are getting 6 macs a day. They call the first 6 people on thier list, but if all 6 people don't come in before they close, they will sell the remaining iMac's to you on the spot. So I canceled my online order, and bought it on the today. Get your iMac today. Try calling or visiting your local Apple store after 7pm and ask if everyone on the callback list has picked thier iMac's up. If not, ask them if you can buy one.

iMac delivered

We ordered the new iMac from the Palo Alto store on January 7. The store called about noon today (2/1), and said we could pick it up. I am setting it up now and it is wonderful and gorgeous. We were told ours was the second iMac to leave the store.

Hot orders

Heard from a friend today that a local elem. school has ordered 15 of the new ones to be distributed. I've seen plenty of iMac labs, but can't imagine what it would look like with the new model.

BTW, hope to catch a glimpse of one tomorrow at the local store!

I'm waiting for these... and when they come and I can see them in person, I might just buy one!

I can't wait...

Man, seeing these pics make the wait for my new imac almost intolerable. I currently have a Duron based pc and can't wait to ditch it for a Macintosh. This is my first mac. I went to Art School for where all we used was Macs and fell in love with 'em.

i would like to live in Usa... actually i'm living in Canada so i'm expecting 1 month of waiting (probalby more) before receiving my so beautiful iMac!! ... US first, canada 2nd!...
About this computer, it's so wonderful, but i'm wondering about the speakers performance, treble must be good but what about the bass.... anyway we'll see!

Those who already have their iMac... how lucky you are! :)
If one of the G4iMac-users is reading this right now, could you tell us more about the computer performance... !

That is the Mac OS X startup, when it asks you to register and setup iTools

Yes, and please post pictures of the iMac on your desk! That thing looks really cool once it's out of the sterile MacWorld environment. Anyone know of other links to new iMac pictures?

iSub?

Is the iSub still an option on the new G4 iMac? If you goto http://www.apple.com/speakers it talks about the Pro Speakers but only in reference to the PowerMac G4. It mentions that you can use the iSub with the Pro Speakers. I'm guessing that you can also use the iSub with the Pro Speakers on the iMac G4? If so, sweet! I like the looks of the Pro Speakers better than the SoundSticks anyway.

Can anyone confirm that the iMac G4/Pro Speakers should work with the iSub?

Netscape 6.2 won't display the photos

Homepage.mac.com uses browser detection code that thinks that all versions of Navigator are the same, and can use layers. Netscape 6.2 can't use layers, but the code handed out to it does, so the photos won't display. It should be recoded to deliver the same code to Netscape 6.x that it delivers to IE.
