Intel based iMac (there really
should be a better way of describing the Intel based Macs without having to use 'Mactel'), but what about the editors
of PC Magazine? They have made it an 'Editors' Choice' and given

It is fast, at least with
Universal applications, and the iMac form factor is very good (Jobs even called it 'perfect,' though I don't think I
would go that far). The reviewer at PC Mag only had two complaints about the iMac, and they really aren't iMac
- Classic is no longer supported on the Intel Macs
- Running applications in
Rosetta is slow
He recommends this system to 'casual Mac users,' but since the Pro apps aren't universal yet
he warns off video and Photoshop jockies.
