Hi everyone!
Do any of you lucky new owners of the 24 inch iMac have any pictures?
I don't know how big it is relative to desks, chairs regular workspace stuff,
send in your workspace, or playspace and let us see!
I was amazed how big my 20 inch was when I got it home...curious about this new brute!

Size and weight (24-inch)

* Height: 20.6 inches (52.3 cm)
* Width: 22.6 inches (57.4 cm)
* Depth: 8.1 inches (20.7 cm)
* Weight: 24.7 pounds (11.2 kg)(5)


Get a large pizza box and use it for comparison to your desk, chair, etc. May need to add paper flaps to extend to the proper size if the box isn't right size, or cut it to the right size, etc. :)

Cool pics, wchong

Does anyone else have all three sizes? I have a 17" and 20" and going to order the 24". Can't wait to line 'em up! :cool:

I saw one today at the apple store and nearly fell backwards. It's SO big! I'd say it's a bit excessive if it weren't so pretty. :D

I took you picture and cloned/resized you 24" to match the screen size of you 20" monitor.

It may not be the exact thing, but you get the idea.
Hey, that's cheating!!

Heh, the pics were originally mine, but no big deal :)

Here is a picture of the same 24" on a very messy desk... I'll clean the desk when I get my new keyboard tonight and take a few better pictures =)

the last pic on the desk doesn't really do it much justice because it's at the far back of everything. When I get home I'll show you mine on my desk beside my 20" widescreen. It's rediculous. When I took it out of the box and put it on my desk all I could say is "woah". I knew it was gonna be big, but I was honestly surprised, pleasently surprised :D

I modified the Nano case a little bit...
here are a couple pics...

The desk picture doesn't do the 24" justice... everything on my desk is pretty big, not to mention its a huge desk... and those scissors are absolutely ginormous... I love them :)
Did you see that on digg, or where you the original who was on digg?

Anyways, saw the 24" at CompUSA today while picking up some DVD-Rs... it's big, standing next to the 20" and 17" iMacs, it makes them look tiny by comparison. HOWEVER, if look at just the 20" next to the 17", and just the 20" next to the 24", it gives an impression of how the 20" is really a more perfect size, and the 24" is actually a bit much. Just my opinion of course, but if I had $2000 to spend on a computer, I don't think I'd get the 24"... I'd get the 20", get 2gb RAM, the VRAM upgrade, and get either (depending what I was using the system for) faster CPU, second (big) LCD, bigger or extra external HDD, AppleCare, or some combination thereof.

Also, whoever did the scaled version of the 20" iMac - that's not quite right. The 20" is bigger than that by quite a bit. I JUST got back from looking at them all side by side (sorry, didn't have a camera on me or I would have snapped a pic) and that makes the 20" look much smaller than it is.

Haha. Those ARE enormous scissors! What, are you Andre the Giant?

And, by the way...messy? THAT desk? No no no no, my friend. That's my desk, on a good day. :D

Hey, I'm doing basically the same thing with the whole Logitech Z-5500 Speaker setup. How is it?

I'm actually downgrading the speakers in a couple days =(

They are absolutely wonderful for gaming and movies, but they lack a little clarity for music-- and since I primarily just listen to music on them I am going down to a Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 setup.

But again, they are amazing with games and movies ... if I didn't need the money I'd hook them up to my television and Xbox.

I'm using the Z-5450's (wireless rear speakers, 315-watt) and adore them. They are missing some midrange, of course, just like the Z-5500's , but overall I'm crazy about them. Not bad at all for $200 refurbished. The remote control is absolute ****, though -- I have to have a clear line-of-sight to the receiver or it just won't register... and that's from only twelve or so feet away. Fortunately, it just encourages me to keep my desk clean.

I was looking at the Z-5500's, but 500+ watts is just too much for my apartment, and it's great to have wireless surround speakers :D
