Anyone got or used one of these?

Getting a new computer for xmas and considering one (the 20" version) never used an iMac before though so no idea what they are like. Will be mainly for general internet crap, playing music and movies, and doing work (word and excel).

They're great. Aslong as you don't want to play most recent games, it'll do everything you want it to. The G5 processors are nice and quick, and the new iMac's even come with remote controls so you can control your music etc from elsewhere in the room.

It'll be for xmas off my parents anyway, so doesnt relly matter if its a cheaper PC or this TBH.

This looks better than most PC's, and aslong as the Mac op system is OK I'll probably get one of these.

The Mac OS is excellent. A couple of differences you'll get used to quickly and after that it's plain sailing. OSX is so much faster, more stable, etc.
