I was wondering if anyone has located specs on the new iMac's Harddrive RPM. I would hope its 7200 rpm to take advantage of the G4, but since it used the same technology as the powerbook, I thought it might use a lower 5400 rpm HD.

please let me know if you find out,

I believe it's 5400. Another reason to go Pro if you need the power. Also, with OS X, the VM is handled a lot better so the 7200 won't give you a super speed boost. Plus with the unix, if you get a lot of ram, especially since 100 speed is so cheap, it can cache everything and the VM won't be used as much.
