What if you could fit your whole life all your music, all your photos, all your movies, all your email in a computer as fun and useful as an iPod? Now you can. Introducing the futuristic iMac G5 in 17- and 20-inch widescreen models. The entire computer, including a G5-based logic board, slot-loading optical drive, hard disk, speakers, and even the power supply dwells inside the enchanting display. Modern living starts at $1299.

Pretty nice little machine.

Yeah, that is pretty nice looking. Question: Can I install Windows on it? (yes I'm serious)

You cannot replace the MacOS with Windows XP, but you can install an emulator and runs Windows Applications through it. Here's some info for you Ben:

I like how the mac's desktop interface looks like. I'm ghetto, I make my PC desktop look like a Mac desktop using programs like Object dock and Style XP

What I'm wondering is how stable is that base? Sure it looks cool, but I wouldn't want the thing knocked over by someone bumping the side at the top, as it looks easy to do...

If you're not going to move it around, you can buy a wall mount for it and then get the bluetooth option and grab a wireless keyboard and mouse and all of a sudden, you've got more desk space!
