Summary: A really good computer does everything, and can be upgraded with newer, more modern software easily (which I did). Ran surprisingly decently with just the 1 gigabyte of ram but videos were just slightly rough. An extra 1/2 GB fixed that. Why spend all that extra money for a new one. The only problem is replacing the hard drive takes a lot of disassembly.
Summary: The 20 inch iMac is apples entry level all in one desktop solution, while this model is nearly 7 years old, it has aged exceptionally well. While the 128mb Graphics processor and standard 2GB of ram are going to limit your gaming capabilities, it still makes basic tasks such as word processing, and light video editing a breeze....And that's not to say the RAM isn't easily expandable too, the video card can also be upgraded with a little experience.
Summary: I was looking for a decent iMac for quite some time. I stumbled onto a Mac mini prior to the iMac, and that was a waste. I was a little skeptical about this iMac, but the skepticism faded within the first day of receiving it. It's running Maverick, and it still runs smoothly. The colors are rich, it runs the programs I want it to run, and it looks great. I love the all-in-one design; with a wireless mouse and keyboard, I don't have to always be at my desk to use it.

Summary: I have recently purchased a used iMac from arimeca and the iMac was great! When I got it and opened it up to set it on my desk it was very easy not like a windows PC that would take minutes to setup like plugging all the wires and turning the computer tower all the time to unplug or plug something inside the back. The iMacs are really easy to carry and very light instead of carrying a monitor and a tower.
Summary: I ordered this iMac through Digital P (seller). It arrived promptly with no dings or scratches. It came with a Mac keyboard and a Dell mouse. Straight out of the box, it was obviously very slow. I expected this due to the included memory and operating system (1 GB memory and Snow Leopard OS). I left one of the 512 MB sticks of RAM in and added a 2 GB stick (late 2006 iMacs can take up to 4 GB, but will only run 3 GB). The extra RAM was about $30.
