Other than honesty, what's to keep me from purchasing the academic version of MS Office from the Apple Store when, in fact, I'm long out of school?
I can't answer that, I'm a student...still.
Depending on the size of your fingers, you may not need to take your iMac apart (a daunting task, at best). If you remove the Airport cover while setting the iMac monitor down on a flat surface, you'll be able to see the purple and green battery in there. I have fairly big hands, but I was able to reach in there and replace the battery. YMMV. Good luck.
In the meantime, I was able to run RealPlayer in Classic last weekend. I'd read somewhere that it dosen't work. Not true.
Entourage, thank God. Mail was driving me crazy!
Well, I did a similar analysis a few months ago and the original 733 G4 with 4 Velocity Engines and the DVD-R/CDRW won hands-down. The iMac is nice, but not for me.
I finally bit the bullet, and bought the education version Office v.x for $199 at the Apple Store.

Low inventory is never a reason for investors to be alarmed. The only way inventory would alarm investors is if Apple had a huge inventory. Actually, this probably why Apple does not have a huge inventory. Companies have to pay for inventory. Low inventory is a GREAT thing, don't get it twisted. On the flipside, there is a potential issue with backorders being cancelled. However, the fact that the iMac is a hot seller should mitigate that factor. The drop has to...
I compiled this list some time ago. Search with Google for the specific model number. I'm sure you'll find a vendor.
