And surely void the warranty in the process. I think just make sure you position yourself well in terms of your lightsource.

Apple, making a bad decision on hardware based on looks? SURELY not.
Yep to me most of Apples design decisions (early imacs excepted I will grant you) seem to be based on form follows function principle. Assuming that looks can't exist without a compromise to function, is obviously incorrect. Macs are also made of recyclable materials, and …theres just too much to say really, I'm almost falling over myself.

PC's on the other hand, seem to be designed by men, with little imagination unable to think out of a very small box. The best it ever gets is when they are blatantly copying Apple.

Got my imac today but I think im going to send it back and go for a smaller one. At the time 24inch seemed a good idea but not any more.

Keep the 24-inch. Yes, it's huge, but the display on the 20-inch is inferior.

How is it inferior apart from the size? I kept the 24inch one anyway but am curious. Absolutley loving it though.

Re: What do you think of Imacs GLOSS screen???

The 20-inch iMac has a TN LCD in it; the 24-inch uses an IPS LCD. You're far better off with the 24-inch display. You'd notice colour shifts across the screen with a TN screen. Shifts are minimal, in theory anyway, with an IPS screen.

Check out the information here, summed up in the Purchasing Considerations section:http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1039222

The sticky was posted in 2006 but the notes on TN and IPS panels are still relevant to the iMac comparison.

Also see http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/panelsearch.htm

The 24-inch iMac is a sweet system. Make the most of it!

I will buy Mac Pro, to work with my Apple Cinema Display 30", i don't like glossy screen for photos at all whatever the system is, i bought Mac Book Pro 13" which is glossy screen and i hate it, i had my Mac Book Pro 17" Matte screen [early 2008] not working, so i will fix it later.
