    I have a 2.66 GHz Core2 Duo Aluminum iMac that I've upgraded to 4 GB Ram. Yep, it's my main machine, for sure.

    iMac - 2007

    2.8 core 2 extreme, 750 gig, ATI radeon 2600 pro, 4 gigs of ram

    Main machine. I really am happy, but I am craving a quad core mac pro. Waiting for the next update to see what happens before I decide what to do.

    Yes, I have 3 iMacs: a G4 flat panel, G5 (no iSight), and 2008 2.4ghz 4gb ram. Unfortunately yes, the 2008 model is my main computer. I say unfortunately because of the glass over it. I never realized how much of an impact it would make on my eyes. The glass is very bad for you. My vision went way down over the past year that I've owned the device. I don't know what Apple was thinking and I ONLY suggest buying an iMac once they have a Matte screen option - or at least once they get rid of the glass. It's not the glare that's the problem for me, it's not the way that the glass looks that is the problem for me, but the impact it has on your eyes is incredibly bad. It causes huge eyestrain.

    I'm on the G4 right now (friend just found it in the dump, replaced the HDD and it works perfectly. All for $60, and that was the cost of the HDD:cool:). It looks great and I think Matte will be the only way for me to go in the future. Not that I dislike glossy's, I can use them, but I prefer Matte and I will never EVER buy a display panel with glass over it again.

    Yes, my iMacs are my main machines. :)

    After owning multiple Apple laptops, their desktops are EASILY my favorite units.

    I use my MBP a lot...more so than my iMac. I got so use to using it when I was abroad that it feel natural to me to be on it.

    Mine used to be but now my 17" MBP has filled it's shoes. Now the 20" iMac is for backup or to render things overnight, kinda like split duty if you will. The iMac has and is still great for me but needing something to be portable and pack a punch, the MBP is the main Mac now :D

    Nice Machines! Though why does one have a num pad and the other doesn't...? Did it just come like that?

    As of yesterday my '09 iMac is my main machine at home, w/ 1TB internal disk and 1.5TB external via FW800, mostly for iLife and gaming needs. Prior to that MBP was my main machine, and still gets the most use since I use it for work 40+ hours a week. In third place is my mini which will take on a new role as an HTPC as soon as my order from Monoprice comes in. :)

    The one on the right looks like the Bluetooth Apple keyboard, which lacks a numpad. The left KB is the USB Apple Keyboard, w/ numpad.
