This machine has a lot of bells and whistles but they don't always work nearly as well as advertised. The biggest problem I have with it is that it freezes and has to be restarted at least once every day and often 2-3 times daily. Apple used their reputation for building superior computers to sell a product that absolutely doesn't live up to its reputation. I wouldn't mind so much but for $1350 I expected a lot more. Next time I'll buy a Dell for $400. Even though they are as problematic, I will save $950.
This computer was straight forward to set up, boots up incredibly quickly and was easy to learn even though I've never worked on a Mac before. I would strongly recommend it, especially for the price. Nice sized screen, lightweight, cool remote control!
I'm a very long time Mac user - dating back to 1984 - and the inel iMac is the first time I've been an 'early adopter.' The experience has been great. All the new 'universal' apps are fine and fast, and the 'rosetta' emulation of older PowerPC apps is seamless and bug free. Best of all, for me, is that this machine is orders of magnitude quieter than my old iMac G5. The built-in iSight is great fun. Now, if only Adobe would release Elements 4 as a universal binary...
My kids love these (we own two) because it can runs Windows and they can play PC games. I've never seen Windows run faster.
On the Mac side, this thing is loaded -- everything you'd want is built-in (I love the Airport antenna being standard) and Apple's OSX software bundle is exceptional -- everything works together seamlessly. If you're used to putting up with the ragged Windows OS, this will be a major step up for you, and a painless one!
You cannot go wrong choosing this computer. It's fast, cheap and robust. Once you use the Mac OS you will never go back to Windows.
I just love this machine. After 10.4.5 it's perfect - the way up to the apple standards.
The screen is extremely bright, and looks huge after my 12" ibook :) The system is very responsive (I added another 512meg to a 1gig total). I do run a lot of application simultaneously, and it's very fast.
Office run just fine under rosetta very fast and responsive.
I use bluetooth keyboard (apple pro) and mice (logitech v270) and it works fine.
Also works great with my HP printer.
In short, this system delivers as expected and definitely worth the money
