This is my first iMac so I can't compare it to the previous versions except the ones I saw at the Apple store when comparing the overall dimensions and thickness of this latest 2012 iMac.

PACKAGING - Includes 21.5" iMac, Charging cable, Wireless keyboard, and Magic Mouse. Like most Apple's products, the packaging is thoughtfully done. All tape pieces are easily removed with the individual tabs attached to them. After set up it has a clean look on my desk, there is no clutter due to the fact that the keyboard and mouse connect wirelessly. Opening the box to setting it up took maybe 5 minutes tops.

FORM FACTOR - This iMac is super thin from the sides and light enough for one-handed portability if required. Looking at it from the front, it seemed only marginally different from its predecessor but the difference was very noticeable from the side. The back is slightly curved at the center and I am guessing all the components are packed in this bulge at the center back. The front glass seems to sit more flush with the body compared to the earlier version which had a tiny little gap. Has a super sleek look to it overall.

SCREEN - Perhaps the most pleasing aspect of this iMac is its screen. Given the amount of real estate you get combined with the stunning LED-backlit display, it's a pleasure using the screen with its vibrant colors and low glare. Apple claims this model has 75 percent less glare than previous versions - there's no way for me to measure this but suffice it to say that even with the screen turned off, the screen is not really reflective. Once it's turned on, the reflections die down even further. Images are crisp and pictures we have taken with our DSLR camera seem further enhanced given the resolution of the screen.

I am ecstatic about my new purchase of the iMac. What a fabulous computer. For the first time in 20 years I have walked away from Microsoft windows and it's continual crashing.
So here's what I think about this wonderful machine:

Unbelievably clear high definition screen, which is super thin. Clarity is awesome!
Fast processer 2.9 Ghz and 8 gig Ram
Takes up very little room on the desk.
Looks very sleek and modern (as my husband stated "The future is here")
Sound is really wonderful. Who knew that built in speakers could sound that good?
Magic Mouse is superb. You slide your fingers in any direction and it slides your screens across. Think Ipad
Keyboard is nice, but it could be better.
Awesome, and I mean awesome customer service! I spent an hour on the phone with an apple rep and he very patiently showed me the differences and similarities to windows. So very helpful. It's so worth buying the $169 apple care with is a warrantee for three years with unlimited tech support. I never usually go for warrantees but this time, it's totally worth it. He even saved me over $100 by showing me I did not need Adobe Acrobat Pro, as their Adobe Apple Product does exactly what I needed the Pro for. This guy really deserves flowers and chocolates.
Lessons at the apple store several times a week. I have not attended one, but intend to.
There are 4 USB ports and 2 other ports for firewire, I believe.
Well priced portable CD/DVD drive under $80 with a USB connector. Also sleek and high tech. It's all you need for loading the occasional software, although apple makes it easy to download everything you need from online.

I had a Macbook from 2007, the Black one, and loved it, no problems at all with it. Then I decided I wanted to get a new one, since I couldn't play some games on it anymore, such as World of Warcraft and CounterStrike.

I got the Macbook Pro 2011 earlier this year. I had it for only a week, and made trips in and out of the Apple store four times because it kept freezing, specifically after playing games. It was weird and an ongoing issues with their i5 quad-core processors in the '11 models. Something with the unit overheating so easily. So I returned it and got an iPad 3rd Gen (which is obsolete 15 days after I got it... anyways) I decided I would wait for the next models. When I heard about the new iMac with the thin outer edge and improved speakers and improved everything. I decided I'd wait for it. After painfully waiting for a whole month after Apple released the "coming soon in November" webpage, on November 30th I actually purchased the base model ($1299) directly from the Apple Retail Store on the day of the launch.

I can tell you, this is the best Mac I've ever had. It runs even smoother than my old macbook, which worked great for me as it was, and the newer software works excellent with my iPad and iPhone. Transferring Mac to Mac was pretty direct in how to do it.

It runs WoW excellently, before custom configuring, ran at 99 FPS on the recommended graphic settings. But I put a max FPS setting to not overuse the CPU. It runs so smoothly, and the huge HD screen looks better with the higher color saturation. And going from my 13.3" to the 21.5", there so much room!!! The speakers have great Bass, and are very clear, and LOUD. The bluetooth keyboard and magic mouse worried me, specifically on having to possibly replace the batteries frequently.
