Today, I saw the new iMac. It is beautiful. I want to see how many other people have met it in person, so I started this poll.

Today was the first time I saw the iMac is sweet. It looks so much better in person, and i couldn't believe how sturdy it is. Its components are very well put together and a lot of thought went into the engineering of it. The LCD is pretty awesome as well...i wanted one after i played around with it for a while. Unfortunately, i just bought a dual Ghz, hence, no more spending money for me...:( gotta be one of the coolest consumer product of the year!

Well I think it was cool, but I was hoping it was even cooler in real life. I saw one a couple fo days ago and I was rather disappointed. They are cool, but they're not super unreal.

I went to see it a week ago at Compusa andit was beautiful. The LCD screen was perfect (no dead pixels), it ran applications fast and it looked like a perfect lamp. Then I tried to buy it and the guy offered to put me on a 3 month waiting list so i laughed and left. I didn't leave empty handed though, I picked up a new EPSON 2000P printer. :D :D :D Im drooling over the thing and soon I'll be printing from my iMAC (when i find one) on it.

Looks nice...

I thought it looked nice, though I wasn't overwhelmed.

One thing that surprised me... I thought the screen would have a protective cover like the sony vaio screens do. Instead, it looks like that halo is just there for looks.

I'm a little disappointed in this, because I think that makes it a tougher sell to schools (iBooks too), where kids will likely jam a pencil through the screen at some point.

it depends on where you are. i know apple stores around the country where its only a couple day waiting list and hten you can just go in and pick one up. it all depends where you live. If you wanna order online it'll be a month

MY new iMac in person :)

well....I got mine last friday and since I am on leave right now I have time to use it any time of the day and that's exactly what I do.
I must agree with Beej.
After all the adds on screen and paper it almost became bigger then life especially after such a long wait.
And then...when you get lucky and get it or can at least play with it realize that its just what it's supposed to be...a COMPUTER !
For me it is a computer that I ENJOY just to LOOK at and the ease of use and the practicality of the screen (I move it at least once per that with your normal monitor :) ) make's it even more enjoyable.
There are flower vases that have the simple purpose of containing water to keep your flowers alive and then there are some who are so beautifull they become a piece of art.
There are cars that simply bring you from A to B and then there are some that are so fantastic designed they also make your head turning.
B&O was the first brand to have one of his stereo systems in a museum of art due to its design.

Apple has reached there with the iMac and it's very unique design.

I think the reason why Apple products are becoming more popular (that includes the iPod..iBook..TBook and to a certain degree the power Mac) is not only the quality of the products but....THEY LOOK SEXY !

And that's what makes you turn your head :)
