    Yes. I've always had a soft spot for the iMac G4 - best looking iMac ever. :D

    ugly and not very ergonomic.

    looks like a light post

    perfect i love it :)
    it looks far better then the new iMac`s
    i always liked the g4 iMac nicknamed the lamp :)
    but apple stopped producing and upgrading it :mad:
    it was something apple was good at "building something unique "
    it would be not another flat screen AIO :rolleyes:

    no offense the new imac looks good , but the radical design of previous mac`s is missing
    like the iMac g3 , the iMac g4 , even the iMac g5
    they had something only apple could come up with
    the new ones are basically only a improved iMac g5
    so why not make a improved of the iMac g4

    What, only C2D CPU? What about i7 an a 30" screen? While your at it ATI 5xxx GPU would be nice too.
    My dad is still using his iMac G4. I prefer the design of the current iMac more, although the G4 was quite avantgarde at the time of it's release.

    Hmm.. funny how the new iMac is 27" and it would make no sense if it was 22"

    anyway, other than no spec improvements at all, and the ugly looks, no, I definitely wouldn't.

    I'd rather keep mine

    That design looked great on the iMac G4, but it doesn't fit in at all with Apple's current product line. Current iMac looks great IMO.

    I'm not a fan of that version of the iMac. The new models are great IMO.

    I love it. I would buy. Though I love the current iMac design, I am kind of bored and would like something really new... But it's not gonna happen till a while with these new i7s etc.

    Apple wont be satisfied until the iMac is just a screen floating in mid air. All completely wireless. Power and peripherals.

    I would be satisfied with that too. Those old iMacs looks bulky and funny looking. New iMacs look great.

    EDIT:

    This is the direction is going in. There almost there. Just need to perfect wireless power and antigravity. :D

    Would have been sexy 6 years ago!

    The G4's anglepoise design knocks spots off of the subsequent all-in-one approach, but the base looks so dated now...

    I never liked this version of the iMac or the original form for that matter. Too cutesy and juvenile. Give me brushed metal and glass any day.

    the ortiginal and for that matter the first computer from apple with the name iMac
    was the iMac g3 not the iMac G4
    and its cute and it will live forever :p
    it will still be working when all 27 are long gone :p
    it was the Mac that saved apple from very likely going into
    bankruptcy without it there would be no iMac 27" today
    here a picture of it for the peeps who are too young to remember

    thats how it started :)
    [​IMG]

    but ther was one Mac which you could even more take as the forfather of the flatscreen iMacs
    and that was the
    Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh or also called TAM
    it was the first all in one computer from apple with a flatscreen

    [​IMG]

    and it still looks great even its build 1997 it had a bose soundsystem including subwoofer and tv and fm radio card and it did cost new 7500 dollar
