Not if your happy with the 17" keep it.

I made the mistake of buying a 20" dell flat screen for my PC earlier this year. While it had terrible back lighting problems. I returned it 3 times then gave up and got a refund. It was big and beautiful during the day. Thinking back I never should have tried to go with the 17" after owning that. Oh well I fixed My problem today.

If you've used a 20" iMac for a significant amount of time, the 17" model seems downright tiny. I would stick with the 17" if I wasn't going to do a lot of multitasking, though.

Yea thats it really. Though The bigger hard-drive is nice as well. Like I had said in another post I owned a 20" monitor for a short while (ended up returning it) before buying the iMac. So I was spoiled by the size. If you have never had it I dont think it would be a big deal. I just screwed up and it will probably cost me a couple hundred.

Thank the Gods Apples have such great resale value. I know I will have no trouble selling it.

Nice and clean, just the way we like it! I should post my own setup again - I've long-since migrated my data and cleaned up the desk area.

Hi Everyone,

You got some really nice setups here. . . . . I was wonder if you guys could post your Cable Management Setups too . . . I have 2 external hard drives, a printer, my ipod, keyboard, mouse, and a digicam dock . . . . so it's starting to look like spaghetti around my desk . . . .

btw - check out this new iMac Gallery and post there if you'd like - http://www.caMiNation.com/gallery

Horrible picture..sorry.

I don't cook, so it's safe by the gas stove. And yes, I have a cheapo keyboard and mouse hooked to it. Couldn't bring myself to unpack/hookup the pristine new KB and mouse

My kitchen is not heated, so it's a good place for my iMac running Dnet OGR 24/7

I know it's an odd place for it..but I think it kinda fits in

Best,


Here's what I do. My desk gets cluttered easily, so I get Scotch Tape and tape everything behind the desk and some under the desk and if there are extra cables, I twist tie them. If you look at my setup you will see that I have a fax machine (phone cable + AC cables) Printer (AC Cable + USB Cable), Scanner (USB Cable), DSL Modem (AC Cable+Phone line + ethernet cable), iPod (USB Cable), Digital Camera (USB Cable), Speaker cables, desk lamp cable, mouse and keyboard and yet it looks clean as if everything is wireless(if you look at the black cable on the right hand side that's the only cable that connects everything to the AC Power)...anyone have similar problem, should try it, I did the same thing with my entertainment system.. =)

PS: If you have problems with the cables showing behind your iMac, twist tie them all together and they will disappear (you won't be able to see them) behind the aluminum base as they will be all tied together in a strip......

Uh excuse me iREZ, the guy (as you call him) already mentioned that he would get the prize for the messiest set up. I did nothing but agree with him. Also a cluttered desk is a cluttered mind. I don't see any evidence of being busy, I see drinks, napkins and open candy bar wrappers surrounding an otherwise beautiful new computer.

Uh excuse me hldan, before you continue to drop deep insights like the above on us mere mortals, maybe you could try to remove the unnecessary pic in your reply (as per the guidelines of this board, which you agreed to when you acquired a user name) and save us some download time. Many thanks.

And then, if you still feel the need, you may continue to lecture us on the importance of tidiness.

Uh, excuse me Simon, there's no pic in my comments. What R U talking about?
I think U R accusing the wrong person. Not to argue with you because this will be my last reply on this subject, but I have a right to reply to anyone's posting with my opinions as long as I am not threating anyone or using derogatory comments. Happy New Year.

TRUE. You have the right to state whether you like it or not, otherwise why would you post your set up for? I like honest opinions, if people don't like it, they are entitled to their own opinions. People shouldn't get offended by criticism, it is a way to better something!

SIMON: You probably confused Hidan with me, I posted the pictures, replying to someone who wanted ideas on cable management! Read before you open your mouth!

Feeling stupid now? Thought so...

Um, no. I meant exactly what I wrote. hldan quoted Mr Kino's entire post including the huge pic just to write one single line by himself. The guidelines of this forum say that normally you should remove the pic when you reply. He didn't.

Now, why should I be feeling stupid?

You tell me! Why crucify the guy for the fact that he had a different opinion than yours " Mr. Mortal" ? He in any way was lecturing about tidiness he was only giving his opinion on what he thought. And you obviously thought that my post was a lecture from him on how to be clean...

I'm very interested in getting some ideas for setting up an iMac G5 in my kitchen. I'd love to see your pictures, but mac.com is just throwing up an error saying that the account is invalid. Could you repost the pictures?

Also, how well do you like the Formac TVR? In my situation, the iMac will be replacing a television, and I need a TV solution that will be super easy to use (read: no direct need to interact with the computer aside from a button push on a remote).

Cheers,
-Jack

Hey...I was lost in the begining just as you are. Here's what you do. You have to upload your picture(s) in a website (could be personal website or even amazon.com as a member picture) after uploading the picture, grab the picture with the left button of the mouse into the safari icon on the dock, a window should open with your picture. Copy and Paste the web address of that window. Now whenever you reply to a thread click on the "mountain icon with the yellow background" and paste the web address in "Please enter a URL of your image", press okay and Submit Reply...it's pretty easy after you get a hang of it...
If you need any help, let me know...
