Noticed that it had two 256 mb memory chips
rather than the one 512 mb single. A bit of
a bummer when upgrading because there are no
extra slots. Amazon misrepresented this.
Just my two cents worth.
Update: December 7th - Amazon issued a credit of $90 for the
misguided information. I am extremely happy with their offer
of compensation. Five stars now *****
P.S. The Seller was very courteous and arranged a return and refund.
Apple is not perfect, but they are head and shoulders above other PC makers.
MS tried to imitate some of the look and feel with the latest windowz release, and now is offering a program to make windowz even more like OS X (the buttons and etc.. are imitated) they have it on their website for a beta download right now. I guess the boys at redmond are concerned about the number of people buying this particular item?
The bottom line is this is what a computer should be, the keyboard is so sexy it probably should be rated R. The only complaint I have is with the mighty mouse, it's very hard for the mouse to distinguish between a left and right click, but with the beauty and power of this system I can live with it.
*UPDATE January 12, 2009*
Ok, this has been one WONDERFUL machine over the past two years I've had it, but all the sudden today I turn it on and I've got a cyan line of pixels running vertically across the screen. A permanent line that will not go away. So I googled it and found out that this particular model suffers from this ailment at around the two year mark. Mine just turned two years old (since I bought it). Further, it's not in warranty, and Apple has not acknowledged it as a product defect. It still functions, but it looks cruddy and imperfect. I'm hearing it will cost me from $700 to $1000 to repair it. Doesn't seem like something I'll do since I can buy a new iMac for $1100.
Beware of this model, stick to the 20" or up, that do not seem to have this malfunction.
However, I would suggest you look at the model one step up that has the single DIMM allowing you to add another 512MB (any modern OS needs at least one gig of RAM) and has a separate video card versus the on-board, RAM using video that this one has.
