I have upgraded from 20'' iMac (previous generation) and this is simply stunning in every way. I personally have not found any problems with it yet and my experience has been phenomenal. There are few little things to consider when buying this Mac.
First of all, the verison I have comes with Intel Core 2 Extreme (I ordered the system from Apple). If you ARE planning on buying the version with Core 2 Extreme please know that it is a DUO chipset not QUAD. It has 2 cores, not 4. The difference in speed is only notable in certain applications such as games and advanced 3D apps.
This iMac is beautiful visually. The "skin" really suits the system well. The black Apple logo in front and on the back make it look more stylish than it is. The iSight camera is barely visible (which is a good thing for some folks). The computer is packaged in virtually the same box as previous iMacs except with different picture on the box.
The new keyboard I do not use.. I prefer my Logitech diNovo Edge(tm) which fits beautifully with this iMac. The mighty mouse is great, I have the wireless version and it tracks very smoothly. I don't have any cons with that.
The screen.. wow, 24 inches! It's big, probably bigger than many people need but.. boy.. is this a work of art! Watching a movie on this amazing display is an experience I haven't had before. The only con I found here is that you wouldn't want to put this in a very bright place or near a window. It is a glossy screen and while it adds style to the Mac it will turn the computer into a mirror if the environment you are working in is too bright.Read more ›
I installed the extra ram (very easy) before I even powered up the computer for the first time. This is quite simply the coolest computer I've ever owned. The sleek, ergonomic design really simplifies your computing.
I no longer have to worry about accidentally ramming my knee into the PC tower under my desk. No more fumbling under my desk on my knees with usb and connection cables. Everything is accessible on your desktop (literally!). The screen is bright and glossy, and the keyboard is so low to the desktop, it literally changes your whole typing experience.
I am running Windows XP Pro on the Parallels Virtual Machine on this iMac so that I can have access to my Windows-based applications as well. (Word of caution: If you're planning to do this, you must supply the full, genuine copy of XP yourself; it does not come bundled with the iMac. Also you will have to run antivirus and anti-spyware software plus a firewall for the Windows part of your configuration just as you normally do in Windows).
So with the ability to run Windows, you can get the best of both worlds. So there's really no reason at all for anyone not to buy this iMac; on o,ne hand, I'm kicking myself for not switching sooner. But on the other hand, this iMac - especially with its new sleek design and its ability to run Windows - is easily the best iMac they've put out to date.
My previous Mac, now semi-retired to a bedroom, was a 20-inch G5, 1.8 Ghz, 2 Mb of RAM. That one was a huge step up from its predecessor. Somehow, I don't feel that way this time around.
Even though my new 24'' 2.4 Ghz Intel Mac is outfitted with the maximum 4GB of RAM, speed and productivity gains seem incremental. Not that it's a snail. It's just...not that impressive, as upgrades go. At best, I notice relatively hefty speed improvements where I don't care that much -- importing CDs into iTunes is easily 40, 50% quicker -- and very little difference where it actually matters to me, Photoshop performance included.
Migrating my data from the old Mac to the new one via a Firewire cable was painfully slow this time around -- something like 27 hours(!). After that, I had lots of problems with passwords not getting stored properly in Keychain Access, necessitating multiple calls to Apple's help line. Oh, and I actually lost all the data in ecto, my blog program. 1,400-plus posts mysteriously vanished. I have a backup, but still...
Compounding the problems was the fact that I upgraded to Photoshop CS3 (from CS2) the same weekend I started using my new Mac. I'm sorry to report a string of Photoshop crashes -- and whenever Photoshop goes down, in my case, it takes all the other applications with it.Read more ›

maybe would have liked it more with a matte screen instead of shiny screen. Storage is good, thought I would never run out but alas the more you have the more you use.Published on August 16, 2008 by caleb
