    If you're buying a new iMac, which model will you be buying? I'll probably be getting the 20-inch model because of the horrifically steep $400 price hike in Australia. You lucky Americans got a price cut.

    I'm also in Australia and have ordered the 20-inch ... pretty expensive! I hope it is good! It's my first Mac! :D

    24" 2.93GHz iMac, hopefully it will arrive by the end of this week, if not, next week for sure! My first Mac ever, and I am extremely excited! Getting a student discount, too, so it will cost me 1597 EUR. :D

    Since the iMac has the same OLD CPUs (No quad core model), I will not be buying one.

    None, I have a nice Mac Pro. And when that machine needs to be replaced with a new one, chances are that I won't buy from Apple anymore.

    Me too, my current iMac can't check emails fast enough ;)

    Shame about the 4 to 6 weeks delivery

    Me too. Its also my first Mac so I am excited, hopefully it will be this week.

    There seems to be a lot of new Mac owners cropping up on these forums. Is the tide turning ?

    I'm still not 100%, but I think I'm going to go for the 2.66GHz 24". I just don't think I need to spend more on the next model up when I don't do anything particularly intensive.

    Yeah the 4-6 is going to feel like a long time but in the long run its well worth it, I'd rather wait for the faster hardware than get one now with the specs I don't want.

    A week is too much for me:D I don't need 4850 so GT130 suits nicely for me

    Yeah it feels like it lol -- but I had to get it since I want to do some gaming + it was only a $40 more upgrade.

    Needs another option on the poll

    (i) Previous Gen 2008 iMac via special clearance prices as the new ones are waaaaay too expensive!

    3.06Ghz 24" 2008 model at £565 less than the 2009 24" 2009 model.
