    Watch a BRAND NEW iMac being unboxed!!!
    Ok, so you haven't yet got round to getting the NEW aluminium iMac?. No problem - watch this video, as a guy breaks the seal, cracks open the box, and performs an unmissable "unboxing" of the 20" alu iMac:

    http://unboxing.gearlive.com/


    Or drop a VERY high res version of the video, into VLC/Quicktime, @:

    And I thought I needed to get a life! Had me on the edge of my seat...not. Although I was wondering if he might accidently cut himself (or perhaps on purpose) when he borrowed the guy's knife. By far the highlight of the piece.

    Do Geek Squad dudes even repair Macs? Does anyone care?

    Ummm, you would think an "unboxing" site would have a box opener somewhere. Definitely time to shut down and off to bed. Yawn.

    Well I think they're actually quite fun, to be honest. Don't be so cynical - let us have fun!

    I thought unboxing videos were lame until I wanted to buy a Macbook of my own and got quite excited about it. I wanted to wait a while until I got the right price, so I needed something to keep me from spending all my money on an impulsive purchase. The unboxing of a Macbook videos I found were just nice to watch for this reason. Watching these types of videos is a bit strange, I agree, but sometimes there's a reason behind it.

    There are a lot of differing reasons, why one would watch the video. If you know what I mean, then I don't need to explain, but if you don't understand the excitement and enthusiasm for Apple that some people like myself have, then expect Steve Jobs to kick you out of any job interview - he would.

    PS: found some MORE unboxing pics from another site

    I think is a great idea for people considering a new purchase, to watch the whole unboxing process: saves questions about "what do I get with the iMac" and "does the Front Row remote still come included" etc.

    That statement is completely ignorant. I think watching someone else's unboxing video hardly is a sign of your enthusiasm for Apple products. IMHO it's a sign of something else.

    Do you work for Apple? Did Steve ask if you watched unboxing videos?

    OMG, look at me opening my new possession - the only way I can get any status is this world is by having people admire what I own...

    Why are people being so mean? It's something special opening something you've paid a lot of money for, especially when it's something as nicely packaged and put together as a Mac.
