Was looking at the gallery of the new iMac and thought this photo was particularly humorous. My main rig is a G5 with Apple monitor, but I recently purchased a PC to run a PC only program. My PC rig looks just like this mess.

Looks cool from the side and the front when the screen is off, very ugly from the front when the screen is on. Whats up with the black trim ring around the screen?

I love the black trim. For the high def guru's you know what I am talking about. A black border lets your eyes concentrate more on the screen. I absolutely love the new design and picked my new iMac up today at around 3 p.m. central time. The 24" model of course. I think they should have gone with a black cord however instead of the white one that plugs into the back of the system.

The back IMO is the best looking part of the device...it reminds me a little of the iPhone styling. I used one fore a while and the two things that really bother me are the new keyboard and the inclusion of only 3 USB ports on the back. The new keyboard is really cool from a design standpoint but I still am not totally comfortable on those new macbook style keyboards. People are complaining about the lack of a matte screen but the glass really is nice....

The only Apple product I own is the iPhone, but after visiting the Apple store yesterday, the new iMacs might just push me over the edge...

Yeah, I'm dying to replace my Dell desktop with a new iMac. I have to wait until the wedding in Sept to buy it, but I'm so excited about the new systems. They look amazing, I've been drooling over them at the local Apple store.

Went to see the new iMac Saturday. It looks great and is it speedy. New iLife was awesome. Many people complaining about the shiny screen. Personally I like it. The pros will have a problem with it though, too much reflection. For the home it is nice. Bright colors. I think it's the best PC for the money. (Opps, Did I say PC!)

Unlucky man

if i lived in the us i would give you it!

i got a mac pro, and imac
(daddys a graphics designer you see)

but the new imac (ugly):oops:

they should stick to the old white look!

thats the direction Apple was going in

but now they have changed plans

ohwell, the up side to it all is... you can get the screen size 4" bigger than normal!

but Steve and his friends musta been on crack while designing the new style

It's alright but a bit underpowered given that they use mobile Core Duo chips rather than desktop ones. Should still be fast enough for use though.

My main problem with iMacs is their lack of user customization but I suppose that's always been the case.
