New iMac G5
Hi Guys / Gals,

So today I went to the local Computer Store to looking to upgrade to an eMac and ended up coming home with an iMac G5 1.8 Ghz 1GB RAM . It's so cool !!! I just had to tell somebody about it .

You went out to the computer store for an upgrade and came back with a iMac G5, WOW! How many times did you doubt yourself in the store not to get one? I suppose there is no buyer's remorse.

I went to my local Apple reseller last week to check it out and wow.
Some minor improvements I noticed.

-The screen is covered this time with thick plastic, unlike the previous iMac
-The screen can be seen much better from different angles compared to the old iMac
-Its VERY thin
-Its VERY fast (G4ers don't know what they're missing, myself includded)
-Its very sexy

got mine yesterday.. It is better than i thought it would be and i thought it would be grate. The screen is so much crisper than my 12" ibook g4. oh I got the 20" by the way so it has millions of pixles. It is really fast iam so happy with it. The only problem is it needs more memory so i have ordered anouther 512 of curcial memory yesterday and then i will have 1gb of ram which should make it perfect. I decided to go all out and get the bluetooth keyboard and mouse as well.

Hey you lucky G5 users, could you post some pictures of your new beauties?? :D

I am looking extremely forward to recieving my iMac G5. It is my first time having a mac. I like the fact that I can use my '*nix' knowledge with OSx.
