Really impressed with my new iMac
 
It's been about a day since I received my new 21 inch iMac with all of the specs maxed out and I must say that I am quite impressed. I was previously using a late 2008 unibody MBP. I tend to keep my CPU maxed out for hours (sometimes days) at a time. My MBP would turn into a fireball and the fans would emit a very loud noise. Now with my new iMac, the system runs cool, and I can't even hear the fans running, that's with the iMac running at full capacity since I got it. Of course, there is also the gorgeous 1080p 21 inch screen (i think it's 1080p, it's 1920 x 1080) and it's 2-3x faster in doing most of my tasks. :D

Sounds awesome!:)...how come you didn't go with the 27" display?

The truth is, I would have preferred the 27" with a quad-core i7 processor, but as it is the 21" iMac JUST fits into my desk.

Love mine after 10 years in the pc world.27 would have swallowed up my kitchen counter where my imac proudly lords over my condo

yeah, as awesome as 27" is, for some spaces it's just too darn big.

I'm also enjoying the iMac's built in speakers. They are far better then I expected. They have a much richer sound to them than my MBP's speakers ever did. A deeper bass as well.

Stories like this make it hard when I'm torn between another Mac and building a new Win7 beast.

I know what you're going through, I was there myself last week.

I have always wanted to build my own machine. It's too bad you can't really build your own Mac.
