Originally I was going to purchase the model under this that doesn't have iSight, but I believe it runs at two GHz. I got this though, for the Front Row and Mouse.
So, all in a matter of a half an hour which entitled me driving to Compusa and picking this up, showing it off to my rents, and backing up/dismembering my old P2 desktop. Ten minutes after I had my iMac set up and online. First thoughts are it's fast, but the welcome screen takes a while (about a full minute on first set up). Pros are the invisible magnets that hold up things like the remote on the side.
Getting the hang of the Mac is simple, and easy. In a matter of minutes I had Safari open, Mail configured, and iTunes had recognized my Gen one iPod.
When you first turn your iMac on and have the net up you will see Software Update popup to tell you if there are any new things. After a quick restar my computer was up to date. A good thing is that the updates are free so far, and come frequently.
You certainly have enough software on the iMac when you start up, I added Real player, Windows Media, and some codec players as well. I also installed Photoshop and some torrent programs.
The ram and processor are great, really fast. Though if you plan on doing Photoshop and other apps all at once, upgrade to at least one gig. I plan on maxing out my ram ASAP.
On to the only Con.
If you like games, you probably will hate mac. Mac has limited games, most of the newer games for Windows come out on Mac but a lot don't. Like my favortie Morrowind, and Oblivion (forthecoming) are not available. That's basically the only con. I guess I'm off to max out my old P2 so I can play games on it.
If you like games and mac, get a 360 and an iMac.
Games available on mac that you will like: WarCraft, Halo 1/2, KOTOR, Dooms, etc.
Overall I give it 4.5, because of the lack of games.
I'm happy though to keep this machine for a few more years, but I'm buying an iBook on the side for portable. One other thing is I kind of like the twenty inch screen now, seventeen I don't know... It's big enough, but I like the thought of bigger....
I am extremely pleased with the elegant design and ease of use. I used to use Windows, which was a pain. Now, after switching to the Mac, I don't have any computer problems. I haven't had any viruses or crashes. It is absolutely unbeleivable, given that my other Windows computers crash just about every day.
This iMac is a very smart buy. Apple packs a lot of bang for your buck, in terms of functionality, durablility, and ease of use.
The one thing I cannot stress enough about my new iMac is that is is extremely easy to use. And I mean simple. This thing is made for both the computer literate, and the computer illiterate.
