Comment: I have two, one at home, one in the office: they look very good, but I spend a lot of time staring at a spinning wheel, despite regular maintenance and updates. Very slow, very sluggish: a lot of patience is needed. The perfect computer for people with lots of time to spare.
Good: The design - it really is most elegant
Bad: Limited upgrade capability (especially for RAM)
Comment: I'm sorry, I'll hold my hands up now and admit it - I love Macs. In terms of innovation they far outstrip anything Microsoft comes up with. It's the same for this iMac. Ok, you'd probably be better getting a Power Mac G5 if you want to do any serious design work or video editing, but there's just something so ineffably desirable about this iMac - and it has a G5 chip. I like the way it neatly packs so much punch into such a small space. The only thing that's vaguely frustrating is the limited upgrade capability - only one free slot for more RAM. Nevertheless - it's lovely. Get one for yourself, and all your relatives too.
