"Very good - but not great."4.0 starson by dralexmd
Pros: Size, screen resolution, ease of use, 'cool' look, included software.
Cons: I've gotten it to freeze several times (in 4 months) a lot of normally free options aren't free.
Summary: Very sleek design in a nice, space saving package. I worried about all of the heat generated by the monitor, HD and DVD drive all being located in about a 11/2" space behind the screen but that hasn't been a problem. Dial in the 20" monitor and you'll be hard pressed to find a sharper picture at any price. HD is pretty quick and quiet. Accessing web pages with an Airport wireless connection is as fast as having it hard wired. Storing, retrieving and tweaking DVD's, MP3's, JPEG's and just about anything else is quick, intuitive and painless. Most of the software included is decent to very good.
On the minus side there's no word processing software included - or spread sheet software for that matter. No email available unless you join.Mac for X$ per year and upgradability is nigh impossible.
And for those who say you can't crash a Mac? - you just aren't trying hard enough. Trying running any large program (iTunes, iDVD etc) while online and trying to download at the same time. It might sound like a lot for a computer to do all at once but my Vaio can do it with ease.
Would I buy an iMac again? Sure. For each of it's shortcomings it has a couple of unique things that only a Mac can do
