Shown by Phil Schiller at the Apple Expo Paris keynote speech, the iMac G5 debuted to enthusiastic crowds. Taking the form of one of the recently introduced aluminum displays, the iMac is now the thinnest desktop personal computer on the market at only 2" thick. Featuring a 1.8 GHz G5 processor, NVidia 5200 graphics processor, and a choice of 17" or 20" displays, the imac is redesigned with the all-in-one ease of use of the original iMac with the horsepower and capability of a modern-day machine.

totally ugly. it looks like a bulimic eMac. The eMac: regurgitated.

I'd rather it be thicker than to have that extra space on the bottom. Plus, the logos are way too large.

Who knows, maybe the rest of the world will like it.

Hell, maybe that's why Steve didn't do the keynote -- he was too embarrassed.

I want one. Very nice. But, as millions of others are probably thinking, the 17" PB can't be far behind.

Finally! Now all I need to decide is if I want the 17" or 20".

I'll pass judgement when I see it live. It's difficult with pictures on the web.

Initial reaction-a little ugly.... but it's slowly growing me.

Here's to hoping for an iPod mini effect where it turns out to be a great success after a lackluster introduction.

Amazing - certain to be a success. There seems to be a fairly sizeable vent along the bottom, and it's still a bit thicker than would be acceptable in a PowerBook - but hopefully that won't be too far away.

I am in the same boat, but, I decided on the 17. With the mini vga out, I am sure the ole hack will work to span!

Not the most thrilling design in the world but still very very nice. Amazing how they crammed it all in that small form factor. The only question now is "What post office do I rob to get the money for one?"

When will they deliver HEADLESS

Market desperately needs cheap headless consumer Mac. Only Apple won't see it. I don't believe that this machine is going to perform any better on market than the "lamp" did.

Much better than what I expected. I was expecting something connected to the monitor and a bunch of holes in the case. It's nice that they got it so thin. The graphics card is probably the only disappointment. I don't know from first hand experience but that is what I hear from people in these discussion boards.

I bet that Apple can't meet the demand. Demand will be off the charts.
