NYT review of the iMac G5
David Pogue's notes the striking resemblance to the iPod, easy access to the internals, and innovative speaker placement, but says that Apple "muffed one detail: even the top-of-the-line model comes with only 256 megabytes of memory. That's typical for consumer computers these days, but on a creative powerhouse like the Macintosh, it's not enough." The article, however, says that while the design will lure iPod fans with its 'attention-grabbing' design, the "feature that will ultimately make them happiest has nothing to do with quiet fans or thin power cords. In the long run, they'll benefit most from the iMac's stealth feature: Mac OS X."
