Bought a spanking new 20'' iMac Core Duo. The speed and screen are so awesome, especially for me who have been using an G4 iBook for a year, but finally after a lot of saving, and a lot of work I got the money for an iMac. It rocks!

20" iMac Core Duo
2.0Ghz
2.0 Gigs Ram
256Mb Vram
250 GB Hard Drive
Logitech S 530 Laser Apple Wireless Keyboard/Mouse
Klipsch Pro Media Speakers

OS X Version 10.4.6
Boot Camp w/XP Pro

Sony DSC-F707 5.0 Megapixel Camera
Panasonic Digital Camcorder

I forget the desk manufacturer
Your Klipsch speakers are wonderful! It's amazing how much better the Klipsch ProMedia speakers are compared to the overrated, undersounding and horribly-balanced Logitech speakers. For audiophiles and regular users alike... I see so many people with the Logitech Z series and I just want to cry...

Dude, that's a beefy setup! 500 gigs! I can't figure out how to fill up my 250 gig, let alone another 250 When are you getting that?

You know whats funny? My cousin just got that same desk, and our gramdma bought it for him. lol. Such a nice desk though, I want one.

Ya! It's nice desk only costs $126 too. I really wanna mount another LCD flat under the glass, something small to have iTunes in. I think that would be so cool, but alas, I can only have one external with my iMac

Is that a 20"? Hell, 17" would be enough for me. I just do light Photoshop and a bit of Garageband. But my 12" iBook definately doesn't cut it, but when they come out I want to get a Mac Pro. Then get a power adapter for my 19" LCD on my basement.

20" and a 19" ... I feel like upgrading the external though. I bought it for $368 and now it's selling for $220 *shakes head* It's getting really easy to find 20" widescreens for under $400 so I might do that and use my 19" for work. I love the ACD's but they're just to pricy for me

Isn't that window a little bright to put a computer against it? Bad for your eyes. Why not the blue wall?

If I could be so bold as to contribute here, the DS lite is most definitely worth getting. It's the best Nintendo portable I've ever used, and I've used them all. The screen is absolutely fantastic, and the buttons feel fantastic. I just did 480 lines on Endless Tetris last night without my hands even getting uncomfortable.

No clean desk for me although this is about as messy as it gets. This iMac replaces a DP 1.8 G5 with 2.25 GB RAM and it already feels faster even with only the stock 512MB. Amazing. Have to order 2GB RAM today

Heres my iMac and Macbook in my studio, I move everything around a LOT between upstairs and this room, so it's always in a state of chaos.

not pictured is my electronic percussion just on the other side of the chair.

I broke down and bought one. Best entertainment purchase of my life! I can't get enough of it. I wish they sold the DS Browser in America though

Here's my iMac G5. I use the PC for playing CS:S and the Half Life games. It's pretty nice. Opteron 175, 7800GT, 2x160GB in Raid 0, SLI Mobo, etc. It gets ~230 FPS in CS:S.

That is what kills me about OS X. I ran 10.3.2 (or .1 or something) on an original Bondi 233. And it ran OK. Not as fast as the QS2K2 I replaced it with, or the Dual 1.8 G5 after that, but it ran WELL with only 28x MB of RAM.

Say what you want about Apple, but overall, their HW build quality and OS quality, is second to none.

The original iMac shape is a classic and I know lots of people who still use their iMacs' to do real world things other than just surfing and email..both of which are also legitimate sole uses for an iMac today.

Brings a tear to my eye I tell ya....

Here is my set-up. I just got the iMac last week, running OS X 10.3.9 which has been great so far. BTW the iMac I got for $65 on Craigslist. It's a 350 MHz Blueberry with an upgraded HD (only to 10 GB). It's wireless now, thanks to a gaming ethernet bridge that was truly plug 'n play.

Sorry for the pic quality. It's my camera phone. :-(

Believe it or not, I got it from Zellers. I'm trying to sell it, however. I'm getting alot of periphals and starting to run out of room. I really need something with drawers.

Ah ok. We don't have Zellers in Hong Kong.

It seems a shame to sell it. I'd buy it from you if you lived nearby! But how about a set of metal drawers to match it?
