    Give Apple your feedback!

    http://www.apple.com/feedback/imac.html

    They need to hear from ALL OF US who are looking at these new iMacs and those who *WOULD BUY ONE AND PAY EXTRA* to have a more powerful video card.

    Voicing our concerns in forums will hardly get their attention, but giving them direct feedback CAN. Remember that their last iMac lineup later received a new CTO option for the nVidia 7600 GT.

    Great Idea! I've already sent my feedback about that! Others need to follow.. if they get an inbox full of complaints about the graphics card, they can't really ignore that!

    I have made it even easier for EVERYONE to submit feedback. Just copy and paste into the proper fields:

    Subject:

    iMac (Mid 2007) Poor Video Card

    Feedback Type:

    Enhancement Request

    Comments:

    Another would-be iMac buyer if only you offered a higher end video card as a Configure To Order option. The existing video card which comes stock will not fit my needs.

    I wanted to submit this so that you consider offering a CTO option for a faster, more powerful graphics card like what was offered in the previous generation of iMacs (the GeForce 7600GT CTO option). As soon as you offer this, you will gain my business.

    Thank you for listening to feedback to build an even better product!

    Sent.. I say my letter was pretty exaggerated...

    "I have been a Apple fan for a while waiting for the new iMac updates to arrive so I can purchase my second Mac since my G4 PowerMac...

    However the new and updated iMacs are great however the GFX card is very disappointing for Apple's high standard in delivering a high end product.

    I hope Apple gives us an option or up the GFX card to something more along Apple's standard.

    P.S. I think you guys also forgot the right side magnet for the Apple Remote.

    Thank you,
    Soon to be and hopefully an iMac buyer."

    Even though the video card is disappointing I need to get my refund for this Dell E520 (hope it's not too late) and get me some Apple in my life again..

    I have sent a message too.
    I dont know what the hell Apple was thinking when they came up with the notion of using NOTORIOUSLY poor GPUs.
    The ATi HD 2000 series is viewed as one of the largest flops in GPU history.

    A 8600GTS provides more than double the power of a 2600 Pro.

    My message begs them for the inclusion of a 8600 :)

    I think we should wait and see what the benchmarks are first.

    Most of the reviews people linked to from this forum is to ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO with 256MB DDR2. The iMac card is 256MB GDDR3. I have found some reviews of the card and they seem to be quite good but the drivers are still beta (reviews were in russian). Those who updated to the newer but still beta drivers noticed improvements.

    Hmm, you have a point. Im still very dubious, but perhaps I will wait for the benchmarks on BareFeats before I decide whether I should totally trash this update.

    here's the feedback i sent them:

    "I'm disappointed in the release of the iMac yesterday. First of all, the color scheme makes it look identical to the Samsung television i purchased 18 months ago.

    Second, the video card offerings are, please excuse me, but they are pathetic.

    Finally, the glossy only screens 100% guarantee that I will not be being this model."
