Well, if you want a very nice machine for the money grab this one, if you still can find it. It has a very nice, expensive IPS display that's great for any graphics and for watching movies. It doesn't have the the problems of its successor - the...

The day our new iMac arrived we were very excited. We had several Mac's in the past; iBook, 2 PowerBook's, G5 Tower - we love Mac's but we do not love the iMac we purchased. The first day we had it, we spent hours on the phone with Apple because of a...

RAM is a bit weak as some have said - will be upgrading

I had to upgrade the Ram to 3 (2GB+1GB), which was very easy. I also had to buy Parallels and Windows XP. Afterward, everything ran great (super quick and very user friendly). Still, I ended up spending an extra $300 for all of the stuff listed above,...

The monitor size and resolution are impressive. The computer is super fast (particularly if you upgrade the Ram--see below). Plus, the new OS for Mac is great

Ram (1 GB DDR2) is a little weak. Parallels (software which allows you to use Windows at the same time as the Mac) is not included in the package. Also, you have to buy your own copy of Windows
