    hey everyone , I'm able to buy the latest brand new imac 24in 2.4ghz model for 1400 dollars. Does not have leopard installed though. Does it sound like a good price. Also do the new imacs get extremely hot with long use of times vs the mini? thanks

    That's a pretty hot deal right there. Even if you buy Leopard for it, it'll come out to a grand total of $1529 - a savings of around $300. :D

    from a friend, he has more for sell. if anyone is interested let me know

    can anyone tell me how hot the new imacs get? I have a mini and could just buy a 24in screen instead. any suggestions?

    Even without Leopard, $400 off a system that's been updated recently is a steal. Score one for you. Your friend must have good connections to have multiple units to sell at such a price.

    Had a mini, had tons of trouble (probably asking too much of it), took it back (to the tune of a 25% restocking fee) to get a 20" iMac and now am a Mac lover. I run my iMac all day with Photoshop CS3, Dreamweaver CS3, an ftp client, one or two browsers, mail, a font manager, iPhoto and adium and it NEVER gets hot. LOVE LOVE LOVE it.

    should i buy a imac

    i could get a 24 in 2.4ghz new iMac but is it worth it with all the freezing issues? Is it every model or just a select few of them?

    Its not every machine but it only affects the 20" 2.4 and the 24" models.

    It only affects the 20" 2.4 and both the 2.4 and 2.8 24" models?
