5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect desktop computer 25 Oct 2007
By Nick D.
Having just bought one of these machines for my family, I am think about buying them for my whole company at work!

This machine has four very good things going for it:

1. It has the most user-friendly, visually-appealing and stable operating system out there. OSX Tiger was always a cut above Windows XP let alone Vista, but OSX Leopard is even better. So for the computing envoronment alone, this machine is a must.

2. The all-in one design is practical and simple. It makes the whole process of using a computer easy and enjoyable while leaving the workspace where you use it clear and uncluttered without un-necessary boxes and wires. The iMac fits just about anywhere, making it an ideal family computer to sit in the kitchen or a kid's bedroom.

3. The design isn't just cool, it is a work of genius. Yes, it looks attractive, but everything about its operation has been carefully thought out. I particulalry like the new keyboard. Ignore people who say it isn't good for writing long documents etc. It is fine. Do you honestly think Apple would release a keyboard that was ergonomically inept? I don't think so. Key feel and travel is on a par with any other top end keyboard out there. It just seems a little weird at first because it breaks the mould and itsn't what you expect. Also ignore criticsims about the reflective screen too. Just make sure the ambiant lighting is directed straight at the screen.

4. The technical specifications make this machine ideal for 99% of all uses and applications, including downloading music, managing photos, school pojects, MS Office, and surfing the web. It will also run games, although I have to say, as a parent, this was never a priority in buying such a machine for my family.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gilding the lily 17 Nov 2007
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Lets get the obvious out of the way...it's an Apple so it's gonna be reliable, easy to use & a bit of a looker. There's also the fact that Macs new OS X Leopard is under the bonnet along with a brighter display & this is a must have upgrade right? Not really. If you have the older 20' 2.16 Ghz unit the truth is there is not much here to recommend an upgrade. Yeah it's true that this is far more attractive to the eye, you know all that 'recycled' anodised metal instead of boring old placcy, and yet...
I don't know quite why but this new model lacks the charm of previous ones. Read the previous reviews & believe them when they tell you that this display is waaaay too bright. You know when you stumble out of bed in the morning & plonk yourself in front of the screen to check you're mail,(c'mon I know I'm not alone here),? Well better get used to the searing pain as something akin to the floodlights at Wembly burn your retina's to the back of your head! The toolbar seems to shimmer as it flashes out at you. I think Apple my have overdone this whole brightness thing.
True enough the processing speeds are an improvement,(2.4Ghz now instead of 2.16), but the old unit was no slouch.
One item that really seems to be causing a bit of a stir is the new keyboard. As about as flat as you can get with keys raised just a couple of millimeters above a matching silver metal board. Some hate it, I love it. I find it easier to use & the easiest keyboard on the planet to keep clean,(the old one was the final resting place for every homeless bit of crud it could find),.
The new operating system is great and it's wireless networking ability alongside it's improved ability for timed backups is great but it's not the big step forward that Vista was for Microsoft.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never going back 30 Jan 2008
Had my iMac for 1 month now and I am truly delighted with the product. Was very close to buying a new top spec PC, but after some consideration, went for a demo at the local Apple Store to see what the hype was about.

Me and the wife considered what we used the home computer for and broke it down into the following:

1) e-mail
2) web surfing
3) digital photos
4) creating home dvd's (young family so lots of memories being captured at the moment)
5) music

With this in mind, the iMac ticked all the boxes straight away with its pre-loaded iLife package, which after the demonstration and consultation (they really did look after us in the Apple Store). We opted for this one (the 24 inch version was too big), and took it away that day.

The 1st week was painful as we had never used a Mac before in our lives so it was a relative leap of faith, but after using the help files and just going with Apple's extremely intuitive interface, we are now fully productive! I did buy the Mac OSX "Missing Manual" as a supplementary facility and this has been a very worthwhile purchase.

So, a month down the line and we are still smitten by its ease of use and its stunning good looks. Testament to its ease of use is that my 6 year old daughter is flying with it already and is completely comfortable with the interface (photobooth being her favourite application!).

Overall, I am now a full Mac convert and won't go back to PC's. I intend on buying a MacBook for my work soon, but will have to install VMware in order for me to run some windows applications, but I can live with that.

If you are sitting on the fence, take the plunge, we did and have no regrets. You won't be disappointed.

PS - Glossy screen can have a bit of glare when facing a window, but we just moved it!
