I just ordered by first Mac, it's a 24" iMac: 2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 2GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM - 2x1GB NVIDIA GEFORCE 7600 GT w/256 500GB Serial ATA Drive SuperDrive 8X (DVDR-DL/CD-RW) Wireless Keyboard and Wireless Mighty Mouse This will be my first Mac ever. I used to HATE Macs, especially back in the early OS 9 days. I used to be the computer tech at a school with about 500 macs and 500 PCs. I couldn'd stand working on the Macs, and always felt like they took so much more work to keep running. Fast forward several years, and the world of Macs have changed quite a bit. They're running Intel processors, and running a new OS based on UNIX. I especially like the ability to run WinXP, and like the setup of this particular generation of iMacs. I decided to give the 24" iMac a shot... I've never really used OS X, and plan on running WinXP most of the time, but I'm willing to dabble on the Mac side. I'm excited! Estimated shipping is Oct 13... I can't wait!
