I went to my local Futureshop (like a Best Buy) today and one of the guys working there said the iMac comes in 17" and 20" but you could also get a special order 23". I don't know how true this is. I've never heard of it. I'm thinking the guy was getting the iMac sizes confused with the Apple Cinema displays. Anyone else hear of a 23" special order iMac?

Definitely confusing it with the 23" ACD. Future Shop has some of the most misinformed sales people I've ever come across. Some of the stuff you hear these salesmen tell prospective customers regarding PC related stuff (Win and Mac platform) would make you cringe, seriously.

Yeah, based on Apple's history, they usually keep a tight lid on future releases and even local store employees don't know what's coming next. From a customer perspective it's kind of dumb because we don't get to know what's coming out next, but this is also an effective way of preventing product leaks.

It would be cool to have a 23" iMac though. I took my mom to the local Apple store a few months ago to show her Apple's stuff and while she was wowed at the 30" LCD, she was disappointed that you had to purchase a seperate computer rather than having the entire thing inside the monitor like the iMacs. Can you imagine a 30" iMac...you could probably fit dual hard drives and dual processors in it, lol.

Ya, that's what I figured. I told the guy that he was probably talking about the ACDs but he insisted about the iMac. I just wanted to post it on here just to see if there was any truth to it. I was aware that reseller employees didn't know about future releases so that made it even more skeptical. I didn't want to argue the issue any further. lol

It would be cool if there was a 23" but I'd be kinda pissed cause I just ordered a 20" last week. (still waiting to get it)

I wish they'd make a wall-mountable iMac with a 23 or 30" screen. Now that's a home media center!

I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.

actually correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the iMac came with a wall-mountable stand, something like a corner stand?

Edit: or actually that you could buy separately...

the back of our computer looks better than the front of theirs

The iMac G5s before the iSight revision could be mounted I think while the new one's have a diefferent shape case which somehow doesn't allow for hanging it up.
