Have had my iMac now for about 3 weeks. It is a wonderful piece of machinery. I like how "intuitive" it is. I find myself going back to work ( win2000 shop ) and trying to drag things around. <grin> It doesn't work that way with windows.

Overall I am happy with it. I find the DVD playback not very good ( I am a picky audio/video phile ), but then again I haven't tried anything other than the default DVD player. It is probably because the LCD however, that the display is the way it is.

I like the fact that a few of my games are supported ( Warcraft III, and Exile ) so I could get a feel for gaming without having to shell out more dough on top of the 2K it was from the beginning.

The only thing I have done as far as hardware hardware is concerned, is adding RAM. I installed a 512 Meg SO-DIMM from, and I can't wait to install another 512 Meg in the service slot. Has anybody done this on their own? I am A+ ceritified, I just don't wanna void the warranty or have any heat issues.

I also have a PowerMate coming ( gotta love being the IS guy at work! <grin> ). So I will write up a review of that when it arrives.
