  1. Whenever I’d get a new doll, the first thing I’d do is take all its clothes off. Is this the “big boys” equivalent of that?

    Oh dear, I think I’ve shared too much…

  2. He didn’t do anything really special in opening the back of the computer. It is very consumer friendly as far as access to parts. Apple posted info on what can be accessed and changed. (Quite a bit, it turns out). Damn thing is gorgeous.

  3. I wonder if it is even remotely possible to develop and install a higher performance graphics card for the iMac G5 given the dimensional an thermal constraints?

    It certainly seems that it would have been possible to provide an accessible AGP slot with the sacrifice of a somewhat deeper housing. It is nice to be able to easily get to the RAM and HDD on the iMac G5. The only other part that is commonly upgraded is the graphics card… Nonetheless, I like the design far better than the iMac G4 and I want a 20″ version soon!

    If ATI and NVidia can develop upgradeable graphics systems for laptops, then Apple should be able to incorporate this into the iMac which is twice the size of any ordinary laptop. The question is would they want to provide this, or should they just tell people to buy a new computer?

  5. Warranty? Does this void your warranty?

    Have to be an authorised Apple Service technition dont you?

    Looks nice inside tho. hopefully the performance will be as good when running final cut pro!
