I've had some problems with the super drive on my old 17 inch flat panel. Hopefully the slot drive on the 20 inch will prove more reliable. It's a very sexy machine and handles all the tasks my hobbies and small business.

Compact, space saving, stylish, relatively fast. Works with all my existing programs, iLife & Tiger are very cool, 20 inch screen welcome after 17 inch of the past

Built in iSight lacks flexibility of corded version, ALL connections in the back, 512 ram barely enough, no adjustment on display height/angle, no modem for faxing

I am picking up one of the "last" 2.1GHs PowerPC G5s. I am already running two other IMacs. As for reliabilty, that speaks for its' self. I am going to use this one as a dedicated audiophile machine. rob Mcwaters

Ease, dependabilty, fast enought to satify my needs, runs all programs I have including the Adoobe's

It would have been nice to have an headphone jack on the front and USB and firewire on the left side

The iMac G5 2.1 GHz 20" is perfect for anyone. Its large display can play movies, big enough for the entire family. For creators and powerusers, it crunches data like a speed demon. Have a creative tooth? With the iMac's multimedia capibilities, any...

The real question one has to ask themself is: what exactly is NOT the strength of this machine? It is fast, sleek, powerful, and reliable. There is nothing more anyone can ask

A firewire 800 port would have been a nice addition

It goes without saying that Apple makes a great product, but at a premium price. As with most products, you get what you pay for. Seeking out a configuration that works for you is the key here. With the 17" configuration, you have a smaller hard drive...

I put off buying this machine just long enough to see my friend's. After that I couldn't resist- there are so many surprises (like a great remote for movies, music, photos). I do wish it came with at least a gig of memory, but with all the features and...

Gorgeous, easy to customize, numerous new features, huge screen, plenty of ports, and did I say gorgeous

All the ports are on the back of the machine. Although it keeps cords out of the way, I wish at least one or two firewire ports were on a side for easy access, similar to the USBs on the keyboard
