Well apple unveiled their new iMacs today. And all I can say is that they are ugly. What were they thinking? They should get rid of that black border around the screen. And the new keyboard is equally as bad. /rant

The specs are quite nice, 2.4ghz C2D, 2600PRO, 1gb ram standard, larger standard HDD.

There has been massive price drop. You can get yourself a 24" for the old price of the 20".

I think they look great and even smarter then last model, I for one not likely to get one 'cause  I want  the 17" one.
20" too big...  rest of the specs fine... wish they had a better graphic card on the Mini to make it a viable option.

I think the design looks fine, but it's not radically different from the old models. As notebooks become more affordable and practical I think that desktop computers are now in the domain of users who need a lot of processing power and large displays, and the iMac announced today seems to be well positioned to take care of that chunk of the market.

I'd be interested to know what that keyboard is like to type on because it doesn't look as if there would be much travel in the keys. Do any Macbook/Macbook Pro users have any feedback on that?
