But now to the iMac...
I have had no heat issues, no DVD slot issues. This iMac screen is big but not too big.
I was worried 27 was way overkill, but I enjoy the xtra realestate. Super clear picture screen, great sound from the built in speakers.
And I easily added 4 more GB memory via a removable slot at the bottom of the monitor. It takes small notebook-type memory.
Comes with 4GB (2-2GB mem cards = 4GB), but has a total of 4 slots. So you just need to add "two" more 2GB cards to get 8GB total.
Very simple to add. Just 3 screws to remove and pop the memory in. Many youtubes out there to show you in detail (if needed).
Just search youtube "imac adding upgrading memory".
Everything worked right out of the box and on first power-up. Bluetooth mouse, keyboard paired right away.
Wireless mouse, keyboard, wireless internet. So you know what THAT means...? only one cable for the power.
No more messy multi cables. QUIET !!! These iMac's make no sound. Total silence. iLOVE that!
Im totally new to the apple iMac and their OS system, and I have enjoyed the learning experience.
Had this new 27' iMac for a while now, and never one blue-screen, never one freeze-up, never one system-hang. NOT ONE !!!
Love the new mouse and touch scrolling.. WOW!!! Love the small compact keyboard.
If you want to spend your time using the computer, and not waste time getting the computer to work, this is the
only way to go. Slick...Quiet...fast... (really fast), and just a true pleasure learning experience all around.
The 27" display and 2560x1440 resolution is just awesome (although I may have to get new glasses). Adding printers, external drives, Mac and non-Mac software just works. No problems, no hunting and pecking, it just works with minimum effort. I even loaded my RealBasic development software and created my first Mac application. I tried connecting wired and wireless to my Dish internet service and it works perfectly. I've had none of the problems of other reviewers (yet).
The screen glare could be a problem but I like my lighting overhead and the rest of my office dark. The top of the display does get a bit toasty but not near as bad as some laptops I've had. The only real problem I can see is that Apple has a strange way of adding memory. The screws to the access door are so tiny and appear to be none standard, so I had a difficult time getting to the memory. I can see where those of you with sausage fingers and minimum dexterity with a screwdriver could strip the screws.
I'm still learning my way around the Snow Leopard OS with a couple of Dummy books but what I see so far is very impressive. If it changes I'll report back.
Bottom line -- don't wait, buy this iMac now if you can afford it. You won't be disappointed.
-Update, the display has gotten so bad that any light background looks terrible. I cannot believe I spent two thousand dollars
for about 18 months of computer use.
