This is a post from a recent Mac convert.

After reading through these forums, I finally decided to make the switch to OS X. I bought the $1200 20" aluminum iMac, and haven't looked back. My only regret is not shelling out more for the 24" model.

The Mac is easy to use, fast, and has all the software I could ever need. I use it for web design and have it sitting in my dorm room at school. People won't stop coming in my room to stare at it. Shocked

Though people applaud the Mac Mini for its small size, don't forget about the iMac. I actually think it is the more portable of the two because it includes the monitor and speakers in one package. I drove home for Spring Break yesterday, and was so heartbroken at the idea of leaving my beloved Mac alone I brought it with me. I simply plopped it in the original box with the keyboard and mouse and was ready to go.

My only complaint is the Mighty Mouse sucks. It is cumbersome to use and the buttons aren't as responsive as I would like, so now I'm using my Logitech MX Revolution instead. When I was placing the iMac in its box to bring home, the computer actually cut me! Sliding the computer into the box from above caused the metal edge by the optical drive to slice my thumb open. Talk about cutting-edge technology!

I would like to thank everyone here for the advice and help they gave me in buying my Mac. My next goal is to upgrade my machine's RAM to 4 GB, which should prove to be an inexpensive proposition.

I also have the 20" iMac and the first thing I ditched was the mighty mouse. I got replacements a couple of times via apple but in the end switched to a Logitech Mouse. Apple really need to sort out the build of these mice.

I bought my iMac back in Aug07 when the aluminium one was first introduced. I did plan on upping the ram but I haven't bothered to as of yet as I'm still impressed with it even though it only has the basic 1 gig. Cool

Sorry to sound mean but...
assuming there was no possibility of getting cut by your iMac, thus having your thumb in the wrong place at the wrong time, was the cause of the accident.


The aluminum edges around the slot loading drives are rather sharp. You're likely not the only person who has cut themselves on one. You may want to write Apple an email and let them know. Maybe they can/will soften the edges on the slot like they do on the rest of the enclosure.

p.s. the edge on the minis slot loading drive is also sharp. The edge is noticeably sharper than the other edges of the enclosure.


I'm glad you like your iMac. They are wonderful. If I didn't already own an Apple Cinema Display I would likely have bought an iMac as well.

I agree with portability. The iMacs are easy to move around.

I also hate the Mighty Mouse.


Welcome to the forum.

Don't think I'm a jerk for the comment regarding the cut Smile
