    Well... do you like it? How does it compare to the G5 (Assuming that's what you came from)?

    Is it as 'speedy' as promised?

    I've only had it on for a few minutes, but all I can say that applications like iTunes, iPhoto, Safari, etc... all open almost instantaneously - definitely faster than on the 2.1GHz iMac G5 I just packed away.

    No. I'm tired of having shit under my desk that I keep kicking. No PC tower is a big reason for getting the iMac.

    Foot room >*

    When I crank the bass, the desk kind of vibrates (you can feel it) but no rattling sounds or anything.

    Besides, I live in a condo, and I have to keep the bass at a reasonable level - so far, it works fine on the desk.

    That thing puts out some pretty serious bass though. :h5:

    I wish I could mount it on the side of the filing cabinet to the left of the desk, but there is no way to do it. :wtc:

    I'm sure things are faster because it's a dual core, whereas the old iMacs were single.

    You should see if you can find a HD w/Windows on it and try to boot from it.

    doesn't it also have a 2mb cache? I had a Pentium Pro 200 back in the day with 2mb L2 and it seemed a lot faster than a regular Pentum 400.

    I don't know why apple feels the need to put a low-voltage moblie processor in anything but a laptop. New imacs should have a 3.6 dual-core pentium D or equiv. right?!?!?!
