Conclusion: Finding any drawbacks to the newest Apple iMac is so hard it's almost like splitting hairs. The new aluminum iMac is a desktop nonpareil in both senses of the word: It is without equal, and (like the candy) it is sweet .
Pros: Sleeker and thinner than the previous iMac. More recyclable materials. Energy Star 4.0. Still the all-in-one standard. Same reduced number of cables. Powerful, even in Windows Vista with Boot Camp. Up to Core 2 Extreme and 1TB drive available. iLife 08 suite is improved and still standard. Good price.
Cons: No media card slots. No TV tuner option. Glossy screen is a bit reflective, no option for antiglare. Not quite full HD resolution. Wireless keyboard and mouse are extra—and there are better mice than the Mighty Mouse (right-click button must be enabled in OS X, shape is slippery).
Summary: Undoubtedly Apple's greatest ever desktop. The iMac is a showpiece computer that garners admiring glances towards your desk whether it's turned on or off. You might even call it the iMac daddy. Ha ha, HA! Sorry.
