    Bottom Line: The iMac G5 is the latest system from Apple, merging a display and computer in one sleek device. But does it live up to the hype?

    The iMac G5 is by all means one of the stylish computers I've had the privilege of working with. But as we all know, beauty is only skin deep. While the iMac G5 is pretty fast, it's upgrade path is weak, and its standard RAM and graphics card is even weaker. If you plan on playing lots of games on this system, stay away. If you plan on using programs like Motion, stay away. If you plan on using word processing, the Internet, and iLife, this system is perfect. This is a home user system, not a power user system.

    That said, the iMac is a pretty sweet system. The price point is great, and the fact that an LCD is built-in is even sweeter. If you are looking for a solid home system, the iMac G5 should be on your short list.
