It is a 20-Inch, all stock, I recently got a MacBook Pro and loved it really and I needed a desktop to replace my aging PowerMac G4, I was thinking Mac Pro but I decided for iMac C2D... I haven't taken any pictures and I haven't really used the computer but I will start soon. This thread will be updated with impressions and pictures, including comparisons to my MacBook Pro (which is also a 2.16ghz so maybe a clean difference between CD and C2D might be seen) and of course... Windows XP and games! :) So far I'm loving it, very stylish and the "chin" is not as bothersome as on the 17 inch model (which was the reason I was kind of anti-iMac).

Well I expect good things! My only regret is that its not a 24 incher lol.

The pics!

It and some random stuff on my desk (catch the small glimpse of the MBP and the PowerMac :)

iMac, its portable little Intel brother and its great great grandfather, PowerMac G4 lol

The 20" iMacs are still great machines, just because there are 24"ers available does not degrade the 20" iMacs status as a great computer. :)


Congrats on your purchase Chone. :)

agreed. all we've heard about is 24" this and 24" that ever since the core 2 duo imacs were released. The other models are still great computers and very competitive buys. Enjoy it!

I know I am going to enjoy the hell out of it :) It looks very damn nice, I'm setting up my partitions, in the meantime, some pics.

I don't know what the heck you were thinking by mentioning your 20" iMac. As far as I'm concerned, it's not worth mentioning unless it's got twenty-four inches.

Lets get some info on those games. My next machine will likely be what you have. I just want to wait for Leopard and I don't really need a new computer now. :p

What are those things on the desktop? Mounted volumes of some kind. When I connect to my PC an icon like that appears. Do you have 10 computers? lol

By the way, seeing you're on a spending spree, buy a new camera. :)

I'm loving my 20" C2D iMac. I can't seem to stay off it either (My girl is not impressed, :rolleyes: )

Oh well, you gotta have your priorities right....and using your 20" iMac should be the highest one. ;) :D :)
