“If a new desktop computer is the object of your holiday hopes this season, look no farther than the new G5 iMac from Apple. I said it when I first tested it and I’ll say it again after two months of use: This is the finest personal computer I’ve ever used, hands down. Nothing comes close. If you have ever thought of switching from a Windows-based PC to a Mac, this is the deal-clincher. It is a stunning machine to look at and to use,” Mike Wendland writes for The Detroit Free Press.
Wendland writes, “But besides the sheer beauty of the thing, the most brilliant thing Apple has done is to make the G5 iMac affordable. The 17-inch, 1.6 GHz model starts at $1,299. For that price you get an 80 GB hard drive and a DVD and CD player that can also record CDs. The 20-inch version begins at $1,899. It has the faster 1.8 GHz processor, a 160 MB hard drive and Apple’s SuperDrive that plays and records DVDs and CDs… I like this machine a lot. And because Macs — for a variety of reasons — are as close to immune to viruses and worms as you can get, the new G5 is my top recommendation for anyone considering a new computer this year.”
