Apple 17-inch iMac Core Duo


I'm a long-time Mac user. This computer was an upgrade from a 20" iMac G4 (the lamp-like one with articulating arm and half-dome). I also own a MacBook Pro 15.4", which I've reviewed elsewhere on PriceGrabber.This is a stunningly good computer, a...

Fast, very quiet, beautiful screen, monitor spanning, runs OS X+ Windows+Linux, handy built-in webcam, highly portable(!)

Finicky SuperDrive, mushy keyboard

This is a great computer overall, save for a couple of things. First the stock RAM on this model is 512MB and OS X Tiger performs much better with 1 GB. A cheap upgrade, but a complaint regardless. Second, the Mighty mouse is awful. The ball and only a...

Compact, quiet, pretty speedy, good value for the money

attractive looking, easy to use, everything you need is in the box, you are the first to try out the new Mac, and know more than the usual person about them

no one knows how to use this, you never know if software is going to run on it, and you don't know why, Adobe stuff can't run, no Acrobat Reader (just Preview)

No modem. What were they thinking? Not everybody has broadband. I do, but my Dad doesn't; I bought this as a gift to replace his aging original iMac. So much for building everything you need into one great package. Now I have to shell out $50 for a...

Remarkably easy to use, especially for non-computer-geeks

No modem
