"Enjoying my new machine"4.5 starson by Andy Meadow
Pros: Snappy performance
Cons: Glare from screen, OS upgrade unclear, peculiar wireless keyboard
Summary: I upgraded from a 1.8 GHz G5 iMac to the 2.4 GHz 20" aluminum iMac. The new machine has a much snappier feel to it overall, and individual apps such as iPhoto and Civilization IV perform much better (in the case of Civ IV, it performs as it should have all along). The new keyboard is surprisingly good for a fast typist such as myself, and iPhoto '08 is sensational! I don't think I care for the glossy screen, though, as it reflects too much glare. I also wanted a wireless keyboard, but the new Apple model is missing a lot of useful keys. These are minor complaints--I'm quite delighted with the purchase.
