I dont know where to begin. I took the original backlash on the new iMac with a grain of salt and slept on it and waitied a good 24 hours to comment. I figured the stats would come out and the deluge of nay sayers would be quited and proved wrong. Im a huge Mac fan and have an iPod and a iPhone and a mini, I even have an old color classic from 1993! ( and it still runs). I also have 2000$ in my savings account that has been there for 6 months waiting on this refresh. I am utterly dissappointed. I am dumbfounded, I truely Believe Steve thinks he can make a pretty/ esthetically pleasing product and fill it with mediocre insides and still sell it to all the zealots out there. I can not think of a worse " new " offering on the market. The graphics just plain stink, color the cat any color you want and drink the coolaid all day, it just plain sucks! Those cards are terrible, no excuse what so ever, I simply cant believe it. I can spec many differnt machines that are much more powerful and pay almost half. I am willing to pay more, and a great deal more, but not for crappy insides. i gig of ram, are you serious?/ Seriously Steve, pull your swelled head out of your A-S_S and at least give us some decent graphics ( arent we supposed to be doing photo and video editing on these machines? forget gamming, how about your core audience?) \ In short, my money will not be going to Apple, I am not giving Steve one red cent till he wakes up and gets back in the game. one dissapointed consumer!
