Only the comic strip "Foxtrot", they have a lot of jokes about the iMac. They call it the iFruit, and they make fun of it all the time. Heres a sample:

I do agree that the cartoonist likes the iMac very much, but he is definitely making fun of it. He portrayes it all the time as an "evil" intelligent talking computer. He's even blatantly doing so in this comic strip, where the iFruit is threatening to destroy Jason's saved games unless it he worships (in this case hug) it.
