It arrived quicker than expected... Dispatched on Saturday from China (custom i5 build) and came this morning by UPS! Awesome, I was still impatient though Just thought I'd provide some feedback for those who want to be in the know... + Quietest iMac yet, surely. I was migrating from my MacBook for about 3 hours before (105GB) and the machine barely sweat - its not making any noise. No whistling from the screen, either, like some have reported in the past. I didn't even realise it was on when I pressed the power button. + Sound quality is wonderful! + It breezes through everything I've thrown at it. Even a Logic Pro project that had over 25 tracks played without a stutter. I'm glad I picked the i5 model as it was to me more future proof, but I'd like to compare it with the i3 versions. + iSight Camera seems sharper/clearer + New DVD drives; mine is a Samsung. + Up to 16GB of RAM. Not sure if this is new, but I know a lot of people often ask about RAM capacities... + I've re-discovered my fetish for 'New-Mac-Smell'. Not that you needed to know this... - 'IPS' screen... No so fussed on the viewing angle. I'm suprised its not better, given that I have a Panasonic IPS TV and the colours remain balanced at any angle - this iMac on the other hand seems washed out even at say 100 degrees. - I still thinking the packagings poor. Only my opinion, but I'm not the least suprised people were having cracked screens with the 27" models. Its quite obvious that because there are no Poly-supports between the bottom and top layers holding the computer, any severe weight placed above the package will cause pressure to spread out over the glass. Luckily, the 21.5" seems like the perfect size and its arrived fine. - DVD slot still causes scratches!! I've been testing it with a couple of blank CD's, and the scratching appears terribly even if you gently pull the disc out and it touches the casing. The problem is that the drive seems to be placed right next to the edge of the slot, so as you put the disc in, it stupidly misses the edge of the casing by almost 1mm. Therefore, if you accidentally tilt it towards the back of the casing, scratches occur. Only way to avoid this is to actually place the disc in on the opposite angle - that being, pulling the disc towards you, so that the surface area keeps away from the edge. Annoying for a £1200 device. Very. I'll continue to update with any thoughts or feelings, but please fire away with any questions you have!
