    After infuriating experiences with PCs, I jumped ship to the entry level iMac and it's been a delightful experience. Even years after its aluminum redesign, the iMac is still the most aesthetically appealing gadget on my desk, and the included Magic Keyboard and Trackpad look and work great. The Magic Mouse isn't my cup of tea, but thankfully the Logitech Control Center lets me hook up Lion's intuitive gestures to my Marathon Mouse. While the OS is fairly fast and blemish-free, some UI elements are disastrously skeuomorphic and there are the occasional hang ups, especially when using non-Apple programs. Like most computers, the built-in speakers are merely passable, but that can be dealt with easily. My last quibble would be that when my room is whisper quiet, I can hear an extremely faint scratching from the hard drive. Definitely not a deal breaker, but I long for the day when SSDs become the standard, not the $600 upgrade.

    All in all, a sublime all-in-one.

    The iMac I have is the 21.5 Core i3, 2010 version of this product. I have come to LOVE this machine. The smooth-ness even with the older, less powerful i3 processor (clocked at 3.06, single core) is unbelievable. Since then, I have not a any issues. The Magic Mouse takes a while to get used to but I also have grown to love that little thing. The keyboard is also great, Since my original purchase of this product, I have upgraded it to Mac OS X Lion. No flaws with that either. I recommend this computer to anyone looking for an amazing, flawless product that, well... works perfectly! In all it is a well polished computer that has amazing features and an all around great design. 10/10

    I got the $1,500 model (with the TB drive and the processor bump), and run both Lion and Windows 7 on it. I'm pretty much 100% happy with it. The magic mouse is a bit unergonomic, and creates some arm pain for me--but I still prefer it to the trackpad. A mouse just makes more sense for a desktop.
