Apple iMac (20-inch, 2.4GHz)
4 Star Review  cnet.com - Aug 11, 2008

THE GOOD: Industry-leading design; best all-in-one overall for its price; strong digital media performance; broad range of connectivity options; easy-to-use operating system. THE BAD: Smaller screen than some newer all-in-ones; puny hard drive for its price; disproportionately expensive memory upgrades; lame 90-day phone support. THE BOTTOM LINE: Apples smaller-scale iMac remains our favorite all-in-one. And while its looks, its ease of use, and its performance are all selling points, Windows PCs are starting to catch up (at least with the latter). A few components could also stand an update, but in general youll find the 20-inch iMac a remarkable computer for its price.

Apple iMac (2008) | 2" display version
4 Star Review  productwiki.com - May 25, 2009

On August 7th, 2007 Apple released the second generation of its Apple iMac powered by an Intel processor (aka Aluminum iMac). The most significant changes are to the iMacs aesthetic; Apple has replaced their signature sleek white plastic enclosure in favor of a combination anodized aluminum and glass. The screen area has a black border and is under a pane of glass, with the outer enclosure made of aluminum. Theyve also made the iMac significantly thinner profile (see side-by-side iMac comparison), improved its power, and added some new features including integrated wireless. It comes in a total of four models with either a 20" or 24" screen size and a range of Intel Core 2 Duo processors running at 2.0 GHz to 2.8 GHz. The included Apple Keyboard has been drastically redesigned and is much thinner, made from aluminum, and features a larger "strike area" on each key (16mm vs. 14.5mm). ... PROS: (1) Sleek glass and aluminum aesthetic (2) Very clean aesthetic with very few cables and components (3) Thinner profile than previous generation iMac (4) 2" Model has excellent screen quality. (5) Decent performance from Intel Core 2 Duo CPU ... CONS: (1) Poorer viewing angle than previous generation (2) Not modular: screen and computer components are integrated into one box, making it impossible to upgrade either independently (3) Not the best display quality on the market (4) Glossy screen too much reflective

iMac 20" - 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 1Gb DDR2, 250Gb HD, OS X 10.5 Leopard, DVD±RW DL
5 Star Review   By member qnguyenca - Dec 29, 2008   

Strengths: Display, can't-beat interface, build quality, ease of use

Weakness: Expensive relative to comparable PCs

This is my first Apple computer since my Apple II+ in 1980. Apple's intuitive OS and interface can't be beat, everything is plug-and-play, and the display is impressive. The machine is fast enough for photo editing and rarely freezes/crashes. As always, Apple delivers with its innovative and beautiful packaging and design. Apple products just make you "feel good" unlike most any other manufacturer's products.

iMac 20" 2.4GHz
5 Star Review   By member jgranato - Sep 28, 2008   

Strengths: All-In-One Design, Leopard OS, Built-in Wireless

Weakness: Screen viewing angle, No sleep light

This is my third iMac and continue to be pleased by Apple's continued refinement of the iMac product line. This device is currently the entry level model of the iMac line. I purchased it for my children to use. Since the computer this one replaced was a Mac Mini, all the data, applications, and settings were transferred via the initial start-up. I knew going into the purchase that the 20" model lacked the full viewing angle of the 24" model, but it was acceptable for the purpose straight on usage. The new thin form USB 2.0 keyboard borrows its design from Apple's laptop product line. Although the new aluminum design is an improvement to making the device more recyclable, you do loose the visible sleep mode light and the ability to hang the apple remote at its side. The device is a pleasure to use and my children are enthralled to have such a new computer to perform their various activities.

Simply great
5 Star Review   By Ted in MD on Provantage (Channel Engine) - Aug 2, 2008   

Strengths: Ease of setup - came home from work and had it setup and connected to wifi in 15min

Weakness: None found yet.

Thanks for quick response from Provantage; placed order on Tues evening and was delivered on Fri. This is my first Apple in 30yrs and it was so very easy to setup and get going. I still have alot to learn since I've been so buried in windows, but the learning curve is simple so far. 20" display is very clear and bright - perfect! I am already familiar with Firefox so loaded that and was off and running. I will recommend this to my sister who is frustrated with her windows experience - especially vista. I added a 2Gb mem module to bump it up to 3Gb total; again very easy. Will also add iWork, Office for OsX, and Vmware Fusion.
