We have two of them here. I bought my wife one last year, superdrive and all so I could start cutting DVD's of our favouite iMovies. We paid $2000 for that one. Just a few weeks ago, I blew my "Mac Purchase FUnd" on a clear out 1 gig model with DVD-CDR, 1049 at Futureshop. The nice thing was I thought I was at least 6 months away from a new computer. I bought this machine and had a little money left for extra memory etc. As for the machine itself, I couldn't be happier. My favourite Mac will always be my original 400 megahertz iMac DV. It was cuddly. If you put your hand on it when it was having problems it always settled right down. But given that it got old and I sold it,( I shouldn't have because I still miss it), but I digress, this is second best. The lack of expandability is good for me, because when a computer starts to get old, like my 6100, I will spend every last dime I have buying every third party gadget that might extend the life for a few more months. I paid $2600 for my 6100 and it cost me a least that much again by the time I gave it to my brother-in-law. More memory G3 card, AV card, clock booster. Every friggin slot in the machine was maxed out with something in it. Better to just buy a new machine. And at $1000 this emac didn't cost me what the processer card and memory cost me on my 6100.
