  • 64GB WiFi here. I think the 3G would be tempting if I traveled more, but as it is, WiFi should be fine. I also thought I would go for the cheapest model and see just how much I use it, but when I saw the apps demoed in the keynote I knew I'd want th…

  • FWIW, I had a hosed Leopard installation on my 24-inch iMac and decided to do a complete reinstall of the original software - wipe the hard drive, restore the software as it shipped, no 1.1/2/3 updates, no Leopard. The machine has been stable since …

  • I love my 24-inch 2.4GHz model; I was surprised at how fast it is. And I use an eight-core Mac Pro at work! Despite all the shrieking and hair-pulling from the usual complainers, the display is beautiful and incredibly bright, and the machine is de…
  • I picked up a 24-inch iMac yesterday at my local Apple Store. The screen glare was worrisome in the store but now that I have it set up, it's not an issue at all. I don't have any windows behind me but I do to the side, and there was no glare at al…
  • Speaking of the new iMacs, I too have been waiting (forever) for this release and now I'm torn between the 20 and the 24, seeing as how they have exactly the same GPU, HDD, RAM, etc. I'd be more inclined to go with the 24 if it had an HD optical dr…
  • At least the black border around the display makes the chin appear SMALLER.

  • The new iMac looks better in the shots of Steve using it than it does in the renderings on-screen. I suspect it will look better in real life than in photos. I personally love the new keyboard, but why is the wireless one a compact design?

  • I'm interested in seeing if there's now an imaginary "border" around the Dock that windows are supposed to respect. It drives me absolutely bonkers when apps allow windows to violate the Dock, and you end up with your resize widget unreachable behi…
