24" iMac Photos

A couple of people have asked how big the 24" iMac is. Ours just arrived today, so here are some comparisons:
iMac vs 17CRT.jpg 24" iMac vs. 17" CRT

iMac vs Blackbird.jpg 24" iMac vs. Blackbird

iMac vs iPod.jpg 24" iMac vs. 5Gen iPod

iMac vs PB15.jpg 24" iMac vs. 15" AlPB

iMac vs SE.jpg 24"iMac vs. SE

wow...

the way that it dwarfs the 15" is impressive. The said lap is actully fairly sized on it's own. You got quite the collection Kazak. Wowsers.

Bonus Points: You also are the proud owner of another classic: The original IKEA Jerker. Nice one. Just took mine apart for a move. Was going to sell it, but will hand it down to my bro instead.

H!

It's big - I'll vouch for that - we're pretty impressed too. Couple in now and going out soon.

Thanks, Ohenri. My son has the more recent Jerker, and the cutout in the front is nice, but I don't like the colours as much, and he's missing the pull-outs, of course.

I forgot to mention that the iMac is spectacular. The photos were taken quickly and minimally corrected, but I hope you can see how bright the screen is, and that's at the lowest setting. According to my son, Neverwinter Nights plays faster on the iMac, even in Rosetta, than on the PB (1.5 GHz), so the emulation hit doesn't seem too harsh. I can't wait to load it up with apps and start using all that real estate, especially FCE.

For the record, I took the stock processor and HD, but upgraded the RAM to 2GB, got the 256MB video card, and went for the wireless keyboard and mouse. Yes, I could have got all those things cheaper elsewhere, but I qualify for the ed. discount, so I was feeling, well, expansive.

I placed the order Saturday night, it left Shanghai Tuesday, and arrived chez moi Friday afternoon, after stops in Anchorage, Memphis, and Mississauga (thank you, FedEx).

I probably won't get to play until Sunday, since my daughter's birthday party is tomorrow, and I expect all the planned events will get lost as the girls fill up the hard drive with PhotoBooth silliness.

So, Kazak, you did it. Congratulations!

I have just joined the ehmac community & this is my first time here.

I live in Toronto & have had a G5 tower, 1.8 single processor for the past 4 years. I purchased an external Lacie d2 DVD writer & an external Lacie d2 HD over the past year. I also just purchased in May a new 24" Dell monitor (model 2405)

I am looking to buy a new Mac & have been looking at the new 24" iMac, just like you purchased but because I have the new monitor, I am also looking at the Mac Pro.

I just purchased a new DSLR camera & am trying to learn how to print pictures. I took about 3,000 pictures during the summer.

At this time, photography is my love & I am excited about improving my computer skills in this area.

Why did you choose the iMac & can you, or anyone else out there, help me decide which Mac will be better for me.

Thanks in advance

mrp

Speaking as someone who decided *against* buying a 24" iMac, I can say that because you already have the screen, a MacPro (while being a little more expensive) would be a better choice for you, if you can spare the $$. It's more expandable and much more future-proof than an iMac. Plus, you already have the 24" screen... unless you want to do a dual 24" monitor setup

Either way, Kazak, congrats on your purchase. Even though the 24"er wasn't for me, it's a beast of a computer (It's HUGE! I've played with it at the Eaton Centre) it'll be an amazing comp for you.

G5 1.8 a bit long in the tooth but actually quite capable for most apps

Given your lurve for photo I would spend the cash on extra HDs, RAM, lenses and a good printer!

mrp,

I'm with fyrefly. If you already have a monitor, you've removed one of the biggest reasons for buying an iMac.

Welcome aboard; the people here are friendly and helpful.

Hey, thanks for the monitor comparisons. I was thinking I'll get a LCD Widescreen Display to replace my 19" Samsung CRT Display when I eventually get a Mac Pro next year, and I was wondering what was around the same height or higher. Looks like I should go for a 30" LCD Widescreen Display.
