Hi all, I just joined the forum, but I've been trolling here for a while. Recently, I had the opportunity to pick up a mint-condition 17" Core Duo iMac (early 2006) for $500. It has 1.5 GB of RAM and the 1.83GHz Core Duo, plus Apple Care until 2009. It looks a little awkward surrounded by my black speakers and 20.5" LCD, but dual-monitor mode is awesome. Did I get a good deal? So far, I love this thing, and it blows my Rev. C 12" Powerbook out of the water! I never realized what a waste of space my PC tower is, since this iMac is at least as fast and entirely self-contained. Well, I just wanted to say hello and share my joy of new ownership. See you all around!
